Responsible Travel

As tourism is one of the most important and largest industries on the planet, we all need to be responsible with our travel and get involved where we can. As a tour operator, Asianway travel are committed to designing and operating our holidays in such a way to ensure we maximize the positive effects of tourism on the local economies, cultures and the environment whilst minimizing any negative impacts.

We will design and operate our holidays in a way that gives the highest degree of long-term economic benefit to the host communities, whilst also maintaining and/or improving the environment.

We aim to use local suppliers wherever possible.
We aim to ensure that our type and scale of tourism is appropriate to   local conditions and does not overload local infrastructure.
- We will take into consideration economic, environmental and cultural issues when looking at new destinations.

We aim to achieve zero litter policies everywhere.
We aim to work closely with all relevant local bodies and authorities to help preserve or improve the            environment and deliver a long-term benefit for the host community.
- Where possible we will encourage local involvement and provide financial support for economic, social or environmental projects that will benefit the local communities.
- We encourage our customers to buy local crafts and support local skills, but never to buy products that exploit wildlife or harm the habitat.
