Saigon to Bangkok family holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

Throughout Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand we try wherever possible to use small locally-owned hotels that reflect the character. We work in partnership with our local in country ground agents to introduce environmental policies which help to conserve water usage and energy expenditure. We cut down carbon emissions on this trip by using low carbon methods of travel such as cycling and boat rides where possible, examples of this are in the Mekong Delta, Ho Chi Minh city itself and the boat journey from Chau Dov in Vietnam to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia.

Waste - during the initial tour briefing all our guests are encouraged to use reusable water bottles to cut down on plastic use.

On this trip we spend two days on the Mekong Delta taking a boat cruise to visit Mrs Nani’s home where we learn the ancient art of making rice paper; we also sample Vietnamese Banh Tieu which most closely resembles a doughnut. By supporting small family businesses we not only generate money for the local community we also provide a fascinating insight in the way of life of communities living in the Mekong Delta. There is time to visit the Cai Be Floating Markets where families can purchase locally produced goods and see how coconut candy pop-rice, pop-corn and rice wine is made.

Eating out
We try and eat as locally as possible, South East Asia offers fantastic fresh seasonal ingredients on offer. Our leaders encourage groups to try community restaurants; more than just a business, these restaurants have been set up primarily to help street children receive vocational training helping them towards a better life.

Whilst in Phonom Penh (day six) we spend the morning preparing a traditional Khmer meal, at the start of the day we head down to the local market to barter and purchase fresh ingredients to use later that morning, once again supporting local business.

We have a long partnership with our local partners, employing Vietnamese tour leaders and using local guides at the major attractions along the way. Entrance fees at Angkor Wat and in Phnom Pehn help go towards preservations of these famous historical sites for future generations.

In addition to the above, we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key and so all staff, Tour leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage. As well as this, we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of UK travel industry bodies Tourism Concern and AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.

As a company we support Cool Earth. Protecting rainforest is one of the most effective actions to tackle climate breakdown. CoolEarth work with indigenous communities empowering them to conserve their forest; keeping CO2 locked in.
