HOW THE MINIMUM CRITERIA OF THE RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL STANDARD WAS MET...
Many people living in the developed world feel drawn to visit the world’s great wildernesses and cultures. They look for unspoilt lands to view the wildlife, experience traditional cultures or simply savour the peace and beauty of wide-open spaces. They seek new experiences and a wider understanding of the world we share, and are prepared to travel the world to find them. Unfortunately, the growth of tourism threatens the fragile beauty of these areas. All things remaining more or less equal, it’s estimated that more than a billion tourists will be travelling the planet in search of paradise by the year 2010. Such explosive growth will have a profound impact upon on environments and cultures. Unless we can protect delicate eco-systems and civilisations that are already struggling for survival, paradise will be lost forever.


Economic responsibility
We use local guides at all destinations in Vietnam so as to provide jobs to local young people, especially like Sapa, Ha Giang, Hue, Mekong. We try to use local products like homestays in Sapa, Mekong and other locally owned hotels and guesthouses. We take tourists to local restaurants where local food is being served by the local people and buy local food of the places we travel to. We encourage our travellers to spend their money locally, e.g. buying local food and souvenirs and visit places of interests where they use fees to maintain conservation

Social responsibility
We fully understand our culture and society and provide our travellers with full information on our culture, customers, languages, code of conducts well in advance of the tours. Luxury Travel Co., LTD is doing our own CBT projects in Ha Giang, Sapa, Hoa Binh. We have worked with different communities and been bringing lots of support there. We help our travellers when they wish to volunteer there in the villages to help them. We use hotels and guesthouses where they employ the local people like in Sapa, Halong, Mai Chau. We also work with a boat company in Halong Bay to help the local communities.

They set up homestay, crafts clubs, medicine herb bath and other activities, all in the very traditional ways to show customers while they are visiting the villages. We support them by working closely with them in making good eco or responsible products not to exploit their resources & cultures for tourism and we support them by bringing educated travellers to visit & stay with them.

Vietnam tourism
At present, the direct impact of Vietnam tourism has been limited to a few areas, but indirectly, the presence of large numbers of visitors is causing damage. In a poor country, the obvious wealth of people from developed countries is a powerful lure. Unsustainable use of natural areas and exploitation of natural resources is a growing concern. In common with most undeveloped countries, Vietnam’s problem is not obtaining income from tourism activities: it’s keeping the money in the country and directing it towards the impoverished communities who live in the areas that attract tourists.

Our responsibilities

As a responsible Vietnam tour operator, we do our best to minimise the amount of money that leaves the country via international hotel chains and similar routes by using Vietnam hotels and service providers wherever practical. Unlike many Vietnam tour companies, we take our responsibility towards protecting the culture and environment of the countries in which we work very seriously. We work with our Tourism Association, NGOs and local communities to support initiatives to use Vietnam tourism as a means of improving the income of local people. Apart from building in visits to worthy undertakings of one kind and another into a Vietnam travel package, we also collaborate with specific social and environmental projects.
