Responsible Travel in Thailand

Our passion for responsible travel means that, when you visit Thailand, you’ll experience more than just a holiday. You’ll meet new people, learn about the culture, stay in some memorable places, and support local communities along the way.

As one of Asia’s most popular destinations, Thailand has developed a lot over the past two decades. Our customers love experiencing the real Thailand and enjoy making genuine connections with the local people they meet along the way. You’ll soon see that Thailand has some of the best beaches, farmland, and jungles in South East Asia…and we want to keep it that way!

Our trips

Throughout our trips, we like to include rewarding experiences that make good things happen for you and the places you visit. Our homestay in Surat Thani will give you the chance to learn all about the community project in this area. You’ll spend the night with a host family, where you can sample some delicious home cooking. By staying here instead of in a hotel, you’ll directly contribute towards the lives of the local people in this rarely-visited area.

Our accommodation

Where you rest your head at night is just as much part of the adventure as the places you visit during the day. We think it’s important that you stay somewhere that reflects the true character of the area you’re in – whether it’s a cosy boutique hotel or a luxury tented lodge by the river. That’s why we tend to steer clear of chain hotels. Instead, work with lots of small-scale, locally-owned places with plenty of character.
