Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Malaysia holidays, 16 days

Environment

Minimize plastic usage: We launched our One Bottle At A Time initiative to replace disposable plastic water bottles with refillable canisters across our destinations. 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.

Belum-Temengor Rainforest
Situated close to the Malay-Thai border, the Belum-Temengor Rainforest houses over 3,000 species of flowering plants, including three varieties of Rafflesia, the largest flower in the world. It is also the natural habitat of an unfathomable variety of ferns and mosses, and has a lake where an impressive 23 species of freshwater fish and five different breeds of turtle can be found. It is also home to Malaysian Sunbear, Asian elephants and the endangered Malaysian Tiger. We stay at the Belum Rainforest Resort which has a heavy emphasis on eco-tourism and conservation, the resort’s underlying philosophy is to provide guests with a unique rainforest experience, with minimal environmental and social impact. They follow a ‘reduce, recycle or reuse’ policy. The property has been carefully designed to blend in with its natural surroundings, built using a mix of wood and natural materials.

Community

Local partners.
We actively choose local guides/drivers, and work only with local travel partners. We insist that any travel partners we work with adhere to our responsible travel policies, and ideally put responsible tourism at the heart of everything they do. We work collaboratively with them to ensure an ongoing exchange of information, so we can all continue to improve our work around responsible tourism. We have also developed a system that allows clients to donate any unused currency to local charities that are vetted and selected by our partners.

Stay & Eat local.
One of our core values is to collaborate with local, responsible companies and partners who share our focus, beliefs and passions. We work with local guides, local operators and hotel partners, and will always offer small, local accommodation where possible, this includes in the cities.

Meeting the locals
We really encourage the use of bikes and exploring on foot the surrounding areas on this itinerary. Venturing out into the countryside of Malacca by bike will allow people to visit small villages and support local communities and see local life. Heading out on foot into the Cameron Highlands will have the same impact.
