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.

Environment
We let our guests visit famous cultural heritage sites such as Shwedagon Pagoda, Bagan, and other places and our entrance fees will provide to maintain these vital monuments.

On arrival of guests, we give recycle bags that they can use when they go shopping and can say "no" plastic. Moreover, we provide the aluminum bottle 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 the usage of the plastic bottle on tour.

In Bagan area, we have participated in “Free-plastic Bagan” campaign in order to educate people the damage to the environment by plastics. 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 around the Bagan area.

We try to use local transport such as boats in our itinerary to reduce energy use and preserve the environment as well. We try to use 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.

The Impacts of this Trip

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 rather hiring only guides from main cities like Yangon, Mandalay 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. 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 in order to sustain jobs and cultural diversity.

We do work to create a 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 to love it. 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 important religious and cultural sites. Example, we advise what we wear when our guests visit those sites and monuments. We provide a towel to clean guest’s feet after visiting the sites since guests have to take off their shoes when we visit those sites.
