Responsible tourism: Northern Thailand 12 day tour

Environment

At the beginning of 2018 we launched our ‘One Bottle At A Time’ initiative to replace disposable plastic water bottles with refillable canisters across our destinations. From March 2018 in Thailand, we will be providing refillable water canisters in our vehicles, meaning our travellers are not generating plastic waste through the daily use of water bottles (which on a full day of touring can be numerable). We also send our guests a wooden toothbrush to help avoid using hotels’ disposable plastic brushes, and educate clients about the limited recycling facilities in Asia, and best-practice regarding waste-reduction. Within our UK offices we operate strict recycling policies and make sure everyone in the office uses reusable crockery and cutlery.

A day is spent in Elephant Valley just outside Chiang Mai. Closely modelled on the practices and ideas of the renowned Elephant Valley Project in Cambodia, elephant care and conservation are at the heart of the project’s ethos. Its hand on in terms of helping the staff and understanding the the ethos of the sanctuary.

Community

Visiting local communities is what this trip is all about. We have included visiting one of the biggest local handicrafts markets in Northern Thailand, Ban Tawai Market, where locals from all over the region come to sell their goods. We will also take you to smaller arts hot spots such as Doi Din Dang Pottery showroom and factory set up by a local ceramic artist.

Remote Minority Groups: We are of the staunch opinion that minorities aren’t tourist attractions, any more than children are. All our holidays that take place in and around minority communities are set up with the locals’ best interests at heart and we work with partners who do everything possible to ensure that the entire community benefits from our visits.

As part of this itinerary we include the unique stay in a family run hotel in Fang with a rich history. This charming guest house is owned and run by a Lahu family who originated from the nearby mountain village of Doi Pumuen where the owner's father was formerly the tribal chief, and the property proudly displays its heritage.
