Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Budget tours to Laos and Thailand

Environment

Low Impact Transportation: This trip gives you the chance to try out the slow boat on the Mekong from Luang Prabang to Huay Xai to and overnight sleeper train from Chiang Mai to Bangkok. Getting around as the locals do not only allows you to experience the culture on a deeper level, but the same way it is at home, using public transport is the most sustainable way to go – after walking and cycling of course! Supporting local culture and businesses: There are a multitude of opportunities to support local businesses and immerse yourself into the culture of Indochina on this trip. From the colourful markets to the bustling food stalls and cafes, the choices for eating and handicrafts are endless and the money is staying in the local economy - a vital way for tourism to make a positive impact. Activities that take you to markets, locally-owned restaurants, locals’ homes and villages are vital to the local peoples’ ability to truly benefit from tourism.

Community

Our style of trip, travelling, eating and staying with the locals, puts you right at the heart of the culture in Vietnam, Lao and Thailand. In Hanoi you have the chance to explore local food while eating on small plastic chairs on the street, or café da, Vietnamese ice coffee or if you like join in with the locals drinking Bia Hoi (cheap fresh beer also served on the street or in small local shops). On the slow boat up the Mekong you have the option for a great local lunch cooked on the boat by the family. Chatting with the locals will give you an amazing insight in local life. It may not be apparent that learning about and respecting other cultures is part of being a responsible traveler, but we believe that this discovery is a natural way for people of all backgrounds, nationalities, and religions to interact and learn from each other, fostering peace and understanding. And it’s just plain fascinating!

Support World Heritage: On this trip there are numerous opportunities to visit important heritage sites on foot or by bicycle such as the Citadel in Hanoi, Hanoi’s old quarter, the beautiful temples in Vientiane, the famous Luang Prabang and the old town of Chiang Mai among others. Celebrating world heritage is an important way to participate in sustainable tourism. Many world heritage sites are designated for protection so that all the world’s people can share in these fascinating and historical wonders for generations to come

Other optional unique experiences on this trip that allow you to support the local economy and learn about South East Asian culture include: Bike ride in the country side of Vang Vieng with its beautiful lime stone karst mountains exploring the Lao life outside the town. Get up early in the morning in Luang Prabang to see the monks collecting alms or in Hanoi seeing the locals doing exercise.
