Why Travel with Hanuman?
 
 

Hanuman has been at the forefront of travel in the Mekong region since 1990. That’s 20 years and counting. No-one knows the region quite like Hanuman, as no other company has explored in such depth to bring the best of Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar to the world. We aim to make every trip an authentic experience and more and more people are discovering that for unique journeys, original adventures and inspirational holidays in the Mekong region, it’s best to talk to Hanuman.

Product Manager Andy Brouwer is the author of the Cambodia Tales website and has a popular blog which is widely followed by watchers of all things Cambodian.

Before you plan your next adventures in the Mekong region, contact us for some more ideas, for innovation, for originality. We offer some unique trips such as Temple Safari, which brings the comfort of African bush camping to the remote jungle temples of the north and Mekong Journey, which follows the course of the mighty river from the Golden Triangle down to the delta in Vietnam.

VIP Experiences
Hanuman has long experience in looking after VIPs in Cambodia, including film stars such as Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig, iconic film directors such as Jean-Jacques Annaud, and television presenters including Dan Cruikshank and Charley Boorman. We also look after many VIPs from important social and political backgrounds. Hanuman has hosted a variety of organisations, events and conferences in Cambodia, including the Young Presidents’ Organisation (www.ypo.org), the Moet Hennessey global leadership team and CEOs of India’s leading banks. Our sister company Hanuman Films has looked after the logistics on major feature films in Cambodia, including Tomb Raider. This production involved 150 overseas crew, more than 500 local staff and extras, a fleet of more than 100 vehicles and catering for up to 1000 people. Hanuman also arranged all the filming and location permissions around Angkor, so we have the experience of organising the impossible.

Responsible Tourism
Not only is Hanuman an innovator in the travel industry, but we believe tourism has a role to play in furthering development in rural areas. Hanuman is featured on a double-page spread (Pgs 32-33) of the ‘The Guide to Responsible Tourism in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam’ (http://exploremekong.org/responsible/cambodia/do-cambodia/page/3). Hanuman is also one of the few private sector members of the Cambodian Community-based Ecotourism Network (CCBEN). Hanuman will continue to support these projects and strive to create further opportunities for the rural poor by taking visitors into remote areas to discover the real Cambodia. Our commitment to Responsible Tourism is visible in our extensive partnerships with NGO projects and good causes in the region: we believe in Responsible Travel, the right way.
