Halong Bay cruises, 2 day cruise, Vietnam
Memorable parts? Sitting on the deck of the Red Dragon 1 in the morning and watching the islands in Halong Bay go by. Tips? Do not select a second-rate company for seeing Halong Bay. I talked to other people whose experience was not as wonderful as mine because they missed the fishing village and being on a beautifully finished and equipped junk. Local benefits? Definitely. I saw the projects that were benefited, including the picking up of garbage in Halong Bay. Overall... (more)Sarah Schmidt

Uluru and the Olgas tour in Australia
Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful.

Angkor Wat cycling tour
Memorable parts? Cycling through rural villages with all the children running out calling hello! Tips? If travelling with children you might want to limit the temples. Local benefits? Definitely. (more)Vanessa Morley

Northwest Yunnan holiday, China
It's always the way when you know that you really should do something to highlight the good work that someone's doing; more mundane, and far worth while things get in your way. And so, I've been meaning to write for over a month now to let you all know how much we appreciated the link that Responsible Travel gave us to a small ecotourism company in China. We would never have found them without Responsible Travel - and it was the highlight of a trip to China, which was otherwise hot, humid, and at... (more)Claire and Paul Cowie
