Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

There is a big push in Southeast Asia 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 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.
