Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Southern Thailand tour

Environment

We visit several national parks on this trip and spend time in some stunning beachside locations. Keeping the places we visit free of rubbish is very important to us. All of our leaders encourage our travellers to adopt a “take in – take back out” approach. Making sure we don’t leave any waste behind and using the walking trails provided are just some of the ways we actively promote protecting the environments we explore. We also supply each of our travellers with a reusable cloth bag to encourage them to say no to single-use plastic bags.

We actively discourage the participation of travellers in any activities that exploit wild or domestic/working animals. Sadly, there are still many elephant riding venues located in Thailand. In 2014, we were the first global operator to ban elephant rides on all our trips. Therefore, we do not visit and would ask our travellers to carefully reconsider visiting elephant riding venues in Phuket. It’s incredibly important for us that we include information about our ban on elephant riding. In order to continue the conversation and support the change in the hope that other travel companies will take similar steps.

Community

We are very pleased to have the opportunity to visit a small community in the outskirts of Ranong, a small mining town, on this trip. Giving our travellers to chance to learn about the rural industry here and take part in making some ceramics or tin. They will also get to share a lunch of delicious, home-cooked dishes with the community. This is a great chance for cultural exchange for both local Thai people and our travellers. It also helps bring tourists’ money directly into the community. Ranong is often referred to as a backpackers’ town with most travellers just passing through on the way to and from Myanmar. On this trip we spend a few days in here, travelling both to the outer islands and also inland, contributing to many different local communities and suppliers as we go.

We have a foundation that was set up to empower travellers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. It now supports more than 50 grassroots projects around the world. In Thailand we support an organisation called Friends of the Asian Elephant. Asian elephants face a number of troubling threats in Thailand. Ongoing human development has dramatically reduced the size of their habitat. As a result, elephants and humans often live in close contact with each other, confrontations are inevitable, and many elephants are harmed in the process. Land mines are a risk. To make matters worse, elephants are frequently exploited for labour and tourism. Friends of the Asian Elephant was established to protect and conserve the welfare of elephants in Thailand. FAE’s elephant hospital provides free medical care for sick and injured elephants, as well as education for keepers. Its Mobile Vets Project sends teams to Northern Thailand to diagnose and treat elephants. It also works collaboratively with other organisations to advocate for elephant welfare. We were the first global operator to end elephant riding and they have now been joined by over 160 travel companies after learning of the abuse.
