Responsible tourism: Complete Cambodia holiday

Environment

On day 5 you will search for the rare fresh water Irrawaddy Dolphin. An endangered species this is one of the last sanctuaries where people can see this elegant creature. We go out with a local boatman who knows the best spots for observing these magnificent animals while causing a minimum of disruption.

The carbon emissions created in Cambodia by this holiday are all offset in Southeast Asia through our partnership with a local environmental charity. These offsets are paid for out of our company profits so that you can travel with a green conscience and at no extra cost to you.

Many travel companies offer their customers the chance to offset the carbon emissions from their international flights too but we have gone a step further and offer to share this cost with you 50/50. If you select to compensate for your international flight emissions when you book with us then what you put in, we put in too!

To ensure that we are offering ground-breaking itineraries and are always keeping up-to-date with the latest developments abroad, our UK staff travel regularly to our destinations. This ‘work’ also leaves a carbon footprint and we compensate for all our staff travel by donating carbon-mitigating funds to our charity partners.

Our UK office takes a leading role in setting the standards for an environmentally friendly work environment. We work with local government to recycle our waste and continually look for new ways to be greener.

Community

Ko Trong is a small island on the Mekong where a sustainable tourism project has been developed by the locals to create more opportunity for the islanders. We support this project, which provides a slice of rural Cambodian life for travellers, by providing an opportunity to work alongside the locals, tending to fields or learning how to fish.

We employ local guides and support staff who we pay fair wages, often exceeding government standards which we still consider too low, and thereby remove the reliance on tipping from travellers for livelihoods.

Our accommodation choices make use of locally owned properties where possible and often include adventurous, authentic choices such as local homestays which therefore involve local people and their communities in the very fabric of our holidays.

We encourage all our travellers to research local customs and read your trip notes before you depart to ensure you are conscientious and respectful in a different culture.

In most cases we strongly recommend that you do not give money to children beggars. If begging is a successful enterprise, parents are encouraged to forsake their children’s education in pursuit of this opportunity.

Talk to us about packing for a purpose and see if you can get involved by making a small material contribution to the communities you are visiting. We have developed partnerships with charities and accommodations throughout Cambodia and are constantly working to extend our reach with the help of our travellers.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


We loved every bit of our holiday. It was a hugely varied itinerary from ancient temples to modern history, biking, jungle treks and kayaking to lazing on an idyllic beach. The travel company helped us put together a really good itinerary. Their hotel recommendations were fantastic and the private transportation they organised for us worked well.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


There is so much to see and do in Cambodia that it's worth spending at least a fortnight here. Don't miss the floating lodge(s) on the Tatai river and book a cycling tour to see more of the temples at Angkor Wat

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


It definitely helped local people. Tourism is a key income for Cambodia - and the places we stayed in were all very aware and active around environmental issues - far more than in the UK.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Top notch!
