Responsible tourism: Vietnam classic holiday, 12 days
Our 12 Day Beautiful Vietnam Classic Tour is an amazing tour, because our travelers get to explore many beautiful areas in Vietnam. We make sure that we are being responsible when we are traveling through all of the areas that we visit. We eat at local restaurants and stay at local hotels, so that we are giving back to the community that is sharing their country with us. Our guests get to enjoy locally sourced foods everywhere that we eat, so that they are getting the full experience from the country.
On the third day of our tour we board a junk cruise boat in the early afternoon. We travel by junk boat to cut down on emissions and also to make sure that we are not ruining any delicate roads by using a vehicle. The rest of the afternoon is spent aboard the junk cruise boat and at the beach, so our travelers can experience the beauty of the area. We spend the night on the junk cruise boat, which helps contribute more money to the locals. It also helps save on the gas that would have been needed if the travelers had to find a local hotel for the evening instead.
For the parts of the trip that we need to drive, we use the smallest vehicle possible and we travel on marked roads. We do not travel on roads that could be damaged by vehicles, because we want to keep the areas that we visit in pristine condition.
As we are traveling, we spend time at local beaches, lakes and ponds. Our travelers are able to spend time swimming, which saves on our usage of water, because showering is not necessary. We explain to our travelers that water needs to be used in moderation, because the area could end up with a water shortage at any time. We also let our travelers know that they cannot use soaps, shampoos or other chemical products in the water when they are swimming. We let them know that the chemicals cannot only be harmful to the water, but also animals and other humans.
We use local guides for all of our tours. Our guides have been fully trained and they are very insightful. They are able to show our travelers all of the local places in the areas that we visit. Our guides explain to our travelers everything that they need to know about the locals and their cultures and traditions. Our travelers also receive information about how they should act around all of the locals. Our local guides also make sure that our guests are aware of any environmental issues that affect where we are traveling. Our guides are happy to share all of their knowledge with our guests, so that the guests have the best experience possible during their travels.
Our travelers go shopping at many markets in the area, including the Ben Thanh market and the Cai Be floating market. We believe that it is important to support the locals by purchasing the items that they sell. All of their items promote their culture and traditions and our travelers find all of the crafts and other items fascinating.
