Providing more responsible and sustainable travel has become a focus of our company. We are making steps that can provide a positive impact and benefit both the traveler and the people and places visited. We prefer to work with suppliers and partners who place this approach as the basis of everything they do.  

Our approach to responsible and sustainable travel


We support local businesses and communities. We do this by working with local businesses such as small hotels, local restaurants and local suppliers. 


We also encourange our guests to visit Community Based Tourism (CBT) projects, which we can include in any of our programs. This gives travelers the opportunity to experience and learn about the community and the environment through hand-on activities led by local community guides. These may include trekking, agricultural practices, traditional fishing, cooking lessons, traditional weaving and crafts and more. Our small groups are low impact and are informed how to interact in a culturally sensitive way within the community. CBT programs are designed and managed by local people to support community and environmental projects and build skills for community members. The benefit for our guests is that they can experience and learn about local people, their lives and culture.


We make steps to minimize the environmental impact when providing travel services. We encourage activities such as trekking, kayaking, rafting and cycling in our programs. Where possible, we also encourage using public transportation options and promote rail travel as a means of long-distance travel in Thailand.


There are numerous communities with Community Based Tourism CBT based activities all over Thailand. Get in touch with us for more information. Read about some of our favourite enterprises.
