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.

The itinerary uses local transportation to not only show you more of the local way of life, but also to be more sustainable. Our local partner works with the Ministry of culture and Fine arts (Apsara) and other relevant ministries who preserve the culture.

Our local partner has achieved the Travelife accreditation for 3 of their destinations and are in process to obtaining it for their trips and offices in Cambodia. They share our values when it comes to maintaining the environment, from recycling in the office to ensuring the local flora and fauna is maintained during the trips they offer through training for their guides and hiring local people to run tours who know the area and the unique habitats and wildlife, they in turn can pass this knowledge on to our customers ensuring the area is treated with the most respect.

In Cambodia, we offer our customers the chance to donate to the Cambodia-Dutch Foundation which is a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the well-being of the Cambodian people through various aid projects. In rural areas, they run water management projects to educate the local people and conserve this precious natural resource.

Meanwhile at our office in sunny Brighton we are keen recyclers and have worked hard towards closed-loop recycling. We buy our paper from the same people who recycle our used paper, making for a happier planet. Since we offer our staff a free healthy lunch every working day, we also collect all our food waste for composting so that it doesnít end up in landfill.

The Impacts of this Trip

We use small, family-run accommodation wherever possible as opposed to using big chain hotels. Also, this trip includes a homestay where youíll be staying with a local family in a remote area with wooden houses on 10-metre-high stilts scattered around. You wonít see many other tourists in this village where each season brings a different atmosphere, whether you potter around the flood plains on the lake in dry season, or are surrounded by water in the wet season.

Youíll learn all about their way of life and sample some tasty home-made treats (and even help prepare them). With this trip, you wonít just meet villagers, you will stay with them and immerse yourself into their daily lives. You are also more than welcome to wake at 4am to go along with the fishermen. Youíll stay in a simple hut with a mattress on the floor, all part of the experience. Staying here ensures the trip will be contributing to the preservation of local ecosystems and traditions.

We also offer regular chances to stop at small shops, stands and stalls during this itinerary where you can buy snacks and drinks from the locals. During this itinerary, we use English-speaking guides employed from the local area, helping to provide jobs in all the areas that we visit. We also use minibus transfers for most of our transport in this itinerary and this also secures jobs for many drivers.

When booking this trip, we offer our customers the opportunity to donate to the Cambodia-Dutch Foundation, a non-profit organisation helping the Cambodian people through aid projects such as caring for orphans and providing support for young families and teaching children who wouldn't normally be able to afford to go to school.
