Responsible tourism: Laos and Cambodia tour, off the beaten track

Environment

Their is a big push in Cambodia currently to reduce plastic waste and we use a number of hotels who work with Refill not Landfill. Refillable water bottles are provided by some hotels and 'one use' plastics are limited.

The Nam Theun Protected Area has been established to retain an environment hampered by human interference. Various projects have allowed this area to flourish once again and it is now home to an array of wildlife including Gibbons.

The use of boats is also a more eco-friendly way to explore the countries and does not have such an adverse effect on the environment.

Travelling by bicycle, cyclo or on foot for many of the excursions mean that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum.

We encourage all our clients to take carbon reduction seriously and endorse Friends of Conservationís 'Carbon Reduction Map' system, whereby you can easily calculate how much you should contribute for your flight. The suggested donation for a return flight to Cambodia is £15 per person.

The suggested amounts are in line with DEFRAís current guidelines for the cost per tonne of carbon and are based on the approximate levels of CO2 emitted on an average flight. We are very grateful to TICOS, the Travel Industry Carbon Offsetting Service, for kindly providing this information.

Community

On the ground in Cambodia we use a local, family-owned agent who demonstrates care for the environment, preservation of their culture and commitment to the community as well as providing employment opportunities for many local people throughout the country.

Angkor Wat is one of the very important world heritage sites in Southeast Asia but sadly much of the majestic complex is in a state of disrepair and ruin. The entrance fee, which is included in the cost of your trip, goes to the very much needed conservation, restoration and upkeep of the site.

The Shinta Mani Hotel in Siem Reap is a leader in responsible tourism through its not for profit Shinta Mani Foundation. This NGO focusses on the three core areas of education, small business start-ups and health care in order to improve the lives of individuals in the local communities. Supporting hotels such as this increases the amount of money brought in by tourists that will actually stay within the local community rather than leaving Cambodia and going to international companies.
