Thailand cultural tour
Description of Thailand cultural tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetTravelling by bicycle, rickshaw, kayak or on foot for many of the excursions means that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum. Additionally, traveling by sleeper train rather than taking an additional flight means fewer emissions, therefore reducing your carbon footprint.
In Chiang Rai, you will visit one of our most ethical and authentic small elephant sanctuaries, where your day will consist mostly of observation and education, leaving the elephants to enjoy their natural environment with minimum disturbance or intervention, whilst supporting their on-going care and wider conservation efforts.
Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and every client will be provided with a re-usable water bottle to avoid plastic waste. To improve use of these, our suppliers are currently working with ‘Refill My Bottle’ to implement refill stations around the country.
PeopleThis tour focuses on involvement with local communities throughout the north, center and south of Thailand, offering a varied journey, highlighting the cultural differences and traditions to be found across the country, whilst ensuring profits go directly to the locals involved in your trip. The experience is immersive, adventurous and educational, improving cultural exchange and giving back to those that share their stories with you along the way.
Throughout this trip you will visit local villages, farms and plantations around Chiang Mai, plant trees with Herbal Plant Nursery Project, stay with remote hill-tribes at Lanjia Lodge, learning about their traditions and way of life, and visit the rural communities around Cheow Larn Lake.
We recommend buying crafts, home wares and gifts from selected organizations that we can suggest for you, so you can help support local communities and their skills and you also know that your money is directly benefiting the local economy.
