Description of Shan State tour in Myanmar
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOn this tour, we let our guests participate in our sustainable action program about healthcare and also improvement of Education to our local ethnic groups. All of the guests can share the healthcare knowledge via our guide through to the leaders of the villagers. And also our female guests can share the knowledge of sanitation to our young local girls.
We take water saving and recycling seriously. 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 aluminum bottles to bring water during tour since we should reduce the plastic bottle of water during the tour before. Our guest may bring water from the hotel and so that we can reduce usage of the plastic bottle on tour. We are planning to start this end of April 2018. Whilst on tour, our guide will encourage our guests to be mindful in mountain areas and recycle/bring back all waste
We try to use local transports such as boats in our itinerary to reduce energy use and preserve the environment as well. We try to use local suppliers for our accommodation and guides who 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.
PeopleWe 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 rather hiring only guides from Keng Tung in order to spread tourism contributions to local people.
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.
As our guides are local, 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 in order 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.
