We should leave places as we would like to find them.
We work to ensure people who work for us are treated fairly and paid a fair wage.
We learn and respect the customs and culture of the community we visit so that we do not offend local people.
We ensure that local people benefit economically from tourism by employing them as guides, paddlers, folk singers, folk dancers and purchasing goods locally.
We minimise our impact on the environment by traveling by local government run boats, offsetting our carbon emissions, reducing waste and supporting conservation projects.
We’ve worked hard at these things to ensure we are welcomed in the places we visit, meaning local people benefit and you enjoy more. It could be through some of our great community based tourism experiences and programs we arrange.
People in colourful local dress always make good subjects for photographs, but think before you snap. Many people, for whatever reason, do not like being photographed. Always ask permission before taking photographs.
