Responsible tourism: Southern Myanmar tour, 7 days

Environment

Preserve cultural heritage site:

In this tour, we let our guests visit famous cultural heritage sites such as Shwedagon Pagoda, Kawgoon Cave and other caves and other places and our entrance fees will provide to maintain these vital monuments. Myanmar is one of the religious countries and so in order not to have the conflict with local people; our guide will share tips when visiting those critical religious and cultural sites. Example, we advice what we ware when our guests visit those sites and monuments. We provide the towel to clean guest’s feets after visited the sites since guests have to take-off their shoes when we visit those sites.

Water saving and Say no "plastic."

On arrival of guests, we give recycle bags that they can use when they go shopping and can say "no" plastic. Moreover, we are planning to provide the aluminum bottle to bring water during tour since we should reduce the plastic bottle of water during the trip before. Our guest may bring water from the hotel and so that we can reduce usage of the plastic container on tour. We are planning to start this end of April 2018.

We try to use local transports such boat in our itinerary to reduce energy use and preserve the environment as well. We try to use the suppliers such as hotel, and guides have knowledge about sustainable travel and who are trying to practice those. We send our sustainable policies to our suppliers and encourage them to participate with us together.

Community

Communities

We know where to find all things local, and we support and recommend our neighbors, spreading the tourism income to those most in need. We use local tour guides for each destination instead hiring only guides from main cities like Yangon, Mandalay to spread tourism contributions to local people.

In Ogre Island area, we are encouraging villagers to use the recycle bags, and our guides share the sustainable knowledge of the plastic-free zone. We provide the fund to print out the vinyl and education message and spread around the area and we, our team, sometimes participate and garbage collecting activities on the Mt. Zwekabin, Hpa An and also Mawlamyine. We employ only local people for our operations by giving the fair price for their work, and we do respect human rights for each and everyone who are working with the company. We provide necessary training according to the need at our office and even to local guides and communities. Our guides are local, and so they know their places well and as our policies for local economy support, our guides always bring guests to only locally own art and crafts shops to sustain jobs and cultural diversity. We do work to create the relationship between our guests and local communities, so our guides explain to our guests about local culture, traditions in advance in order not to have the conflict with local and serve as translators to talk with locals. Our guides will teach some useful local language to greet to locals so that they can get a good start with the locals and locals love it.
