Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Cambodia discovery holiday, tailor made


During this trip, we visit the Cardamom Mountains, which is the largest intact lowland rainforest in South East Asia. Here you will find species such as the Asian elephant, Indochinese tiger and Malayan sun bear to name a few. We visit a local conservation project, who are dedicated to conserving both the area and the rare species found within it. These fees therefore help fund the project, helping conservation in the area. The presence of tourism in the area helps to emphasise to the local people that wildlife and the natural world is worth conserving for its own sake and is not just a resource to be used.
To ensure that our groups have minimal impact upon the environment we work with our local team to ensure that all guides and drivers receive extensive training on sustainability policies, from not dropping litter to ensuring that natural habitats are respected when trekking or exploring the countryside. Where possible we will use local transport to minimise carbon emissions.
Through our local team we work to ensure that the hotels we use understand responsible tourism policies and make moves towards implementing them - this involves basic principles such as reducing energy and water usage, that have long been practiced elsewhere but are not so established here, as well as encouraging proper methods of waste disposal.
As part of the pre-departure information which all travellers receive, we include an extensive section on how to travel responsibly.


We recognise that we have a special responsibility to ensure that the traditions that make it such a special place to visit are not eroded. Our travellers are briefed in depth about how to behave appropriately when visiting local communities, so as not to offend local customs. If travellers want to bring gifts for the communities we administer these via the guide who can make sure they are appropriately distributed.
A lot of Cambodia's monuments have been poorly funded by the Government, and so tourism income plays a crucial role in maintaining and conserving these monuments for future generations. Travellers are also given guidelines on appropriate behaviour concerning photography; too many times this can cause offence, especially in more remote communities, and we emphasise that this is a two way process and should only be carried out with the consent of people being photographed.
We actively recommend the best local restaurants for our travellers to eat in; not only does this provide a much more enjoyable and authentic experience than hotel meals but it helps to spread the benefits from tourism among small businesses in the area. We make a point of not staying in any government owned hotels but instead prefer to use those hotels which are independently owned.
