Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Burma walking tour, 15 days

Environment

While staying at a Kayah village, you will enjoy local rice, seasonal vegetables, meat and freshly caught fish from the village-owned pond. This practice doesn't deplete or damage local stocks, as the pond is replenished every year with young fish at the beginning of the rainy season. With the support of ongoing environmental education programs in the area, the villagers also impose strict rules and fines to prevent damage and rubbish dumping. They also use fast growing trees as firewood in order to meet the demand in a sustainable way. By using local produce, the travel industry helps villagers keep and sustain their livestock and other traditional food stocks as they have abundant farmlands and water resources, most of which are not utilized or properly managed when there is no demand from outside. In short, the presence of visitors encourages local villagers to conserve their environment both directly and indirectly.

Community

The package is designed to provide our guests not only with wonderful experiences and exciting activities but also to help the local communities maintain their traditions and environment through their involvement in sustainable and responsible tourism. Local people benefit directly and indirectly from tourism and income from visitors contributes to local development in the area. For example, trekking activities provide villagers with extra incomefrom working as guides, providing food and accommodations or selling souvenirs and handicrafts. In return, a considerable amount of the profits gained are donated to communal welfares and the conservations of their environment. The presence of outside visitors encourages awareness of the value of their natural and traditional heritage. At the same time, by spending time with local people our guests are able to appreciate local customs and traditions more than tourists who are passing through without guides. Above all, local people can share their traditions and customs to the outside world through the promoting of understanding and respect from both sides.
