Community-Based Travel

A travel style that supports local businesses, employment, and education as much as possible.

Why is the local community important?

Imagine this :

Your hometown is flooded with tourists because they love its beauty. Then, some strangers come, build big businesses, benefit financially and leave your community out. How would you feel?

Community-based tourism not only empowers locals economically but also encourages culture and nature preservation. Local communities will learn that preserving their home’s culture and nature is important for the area’s sustainability and society.

How to support the local community?

Choose locally run trips

Choose locally owned accommodations or accommodations that prioritize local hiring & local empowerment programs

Choose locally-owned restaurants or cafes
