Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cultural Burma tour by bicycle

We passionately believe that Responsible Tourism can be of immense help to local communities; providing income, positive cultural exchanges and an incentive to protect the natural environment. Recognising that there is always room for improvement, we continually strive to narrow the gap between principle and practice.

Prior to our tours, we liaise with local community leaders to ensure we are welcome and in a manner that minimizes negative social and cultural impact. We visit local development and community projects specific to the region, encouraging our clients to donate and/or assist such projects in appropriate and sustainable manners.

Our tours are never more than 16 people to minimize any social and environmental impact. The itinerary for this trip, and indeed the whole brochure, can be downloaded from our website, reducing the need for printing in most cases.

We actively engage in environmentally responsible practices to minimize tourist impact upon the local habitat. We provide clients with the best information and means to help them identify and implement effective ways to positively protect local nature and communities. It is a vital ethos that can be passed on and abided by all, long after the trip has ended.

Although bottled water is preferred by most of travellers on cycling tours we encourage our riders to have individual water bottles that can be refilled when necessary.

Modern Burma is in the midst of a paradigm shift, pursuing a freer democratic political model and opening herself to the world. For the last ten years we are proud to have been providing contact between local communities and outside visitors while these modern processes were a unreachable aspiration for many. Our tours have witnessed how close interaction, warmth and sharing have always been a sign of hope for those immured in a system of non-freedoms.

The move toward a freer society still has a distance to travel. Our tours use non-government sanctioned hotels, we promote smaller independent retail outlets and restaurants preferring to funnel payment directly into local businesses.

Through sensitive hands on experience, we encourage cross cultural interaction and education between clients and the local communities. This is achieved by limiting tour group sizes, which also minimises any social and environmental impact. We also assist in the development of local infrastructure such as rural pathways.

We make sure that where and whenever possible our tours positively benefit the local community. We stay at locally owned accommodation and visit cottage industries for local handicraft souvenirs, generating income for local businesses. We employ and train local guides, drivers and assistants on all trips to ensure that the local community benefits not only short term but with increased employment opportunities for the future.
