Responsible tourism: Classic Cambodia 14 day holiday

Environment

Travelling by bicycle, cyclo or on foot for many of the excursions mean that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum.

Their is a big push in Cambodia currently to reduce plastic waste and we use a number of hotels who work with Refill not Landfill. Refillable water bottles are provided by some hotels and 'one use' plastics are limited.

We encourage all our clients to take carbon reduction seriously and endorse Friends of Conservation’s 'Carbon Reduction Map' system, whereby you can easily calculate how much you should contribute for your flight. The suggested donation for a return flight to Cambodia is £15 per person.

The suggested amounts are in line with DEFRA’s current guidelines for the cost per tonne of carbon and are based on the approximate levels of CO2 emitted on an average flight. We are very grateful to TICOS, the Travel Industry Carbon Offsetting Service, for kindly providing this information.

Community

On the ground in Cambodia we use an excellent, local, family-owned agent who demonstrates care for the environment, preservation of their culture and commitment to the community as well as providing employment opportunities for many local people throughout the country.

Angkor Wat is one of the most important world heritage sites in Southeast Asia but sadly much of the majestic complex is in a state of disrepair and ruin. The entrance fee, which is included in the cost of your trip, goes to the very much needed conservation, restoration and upkeep of the site.

The Shinta Mani Hotel in Siem Reap is a leader in responsible tourism through its not for profit Shinta Mani Foundation. This NGO focusses on the three core areas of education, small business start-ups and health care in order to improve the lives of individuals in the local communities. Supporting hotels such as this increases the amount of money brought in by tourists that will actually stay within the local community rather than leaving Cambodia and going to international companies.

The Cambodia Landmine Museum is a Cambodian NGO, run by and for Cambodians. It exists to tell the story of landmines in Cambodia, how they have impacted the country’s past, present and will continue to impact its future. The Museum also hosts a Relief Facility for at-risk village children. The money raised by the museum allows this facility to continue.

Phare Ponleu Selpak (PPS), which means “the brightness of art,” is a cultural organisation in Battambang, Cambodia, that offers young people a way out of poverty by training them to become professional artists and performers. Set up in 1994 by young returnee Cambodians from the refugee camps who learned about using art as a means of coping with trauma, PPS has played an influential role in promoting and developing Khmer culture over the years after the Khmer Rouge genocide. This Cambodian non-profit association steers underprivileged children and youth towards a better quality of life through cultural, artistic, educational and social skills. Your visit here helps them with their work.
