Responsible Tourism Initiatives We Support in Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar


So what is responsible tourism? Here at Hanuman, we like to think it is travel that makes better places to visit and better places to live. This means everyone benefits from the experience, including the visitor and the host communities. Tourism can have a very positive financial impact on host communities and Hanuman is committed to spreading this income far and wide through its unique journeys, original adventures and authentic experiences.

Hanuman is very committed to supporting responsible tourism in all its forms. We have long promoted ecotourism projects in national parks, sustainable tourism initiatives such as training restaurants and community-based tourism activities such as homestays. We try our best to support NGO-related tourism projects to assist disadvantaged people in the region, including training restaurants such as Friends and Romdeng in Phnom Penh, Mak Phet in Vientiane, KOTO and Hoa Sua in Hanoi and Shwe Sa Bwe in Yangon. Hanuman also supports initiatives to revitalize the handicraft industry in these countries, including support for Artisans d’Angkor in Siem Reap, Ock Pop Tock in Luang Prabang, Reaching Out in Hoi An and AFXB Craft Shop in Yangon. When it comes to ecotourism, Hanuman supports Elephant Valley Project in Mondulkiri, the Gibbon Experience in Bokeo, Northern Laos, the Endangered Primate Rescue Center in Cuc Phuong National Park and the Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp in Kalaw. However, we believe we can and should do more to help the underprivileged and impoverished in this region. In order to take our commitment to the next level, Hanuman is supporting grass-roots anti-poverty programmes in the more remote areas that our journeys visit. We believe the values of pro-poor tourism are shared by many of our partners and their guests around the world and we intend to give visitors the opportunity to assist in any way that they can.

We also work with a selected group of NGOs who are making an impact on the lives of local people. We have chosen a combination of causes to ensure you can assist in any area of development, be it healthcare, education, child welfare, landmine clearance, heritage preservation and the promotion of arts and culture.

We look forward to working together to make tourism a force for positive change in the Mekong region.
