The all workshops have also affected on our tour operator mindset. The evidence is that all activities in every tour must not damage the environment such as using tote bags instead of nylon bags, using glass bottles rather than plastic one, no littering, keep of the grass… Vietnam Scenery also avoids activities with high environmental impacts, such as motorized tours, trophy hunting and hiking. To protect environment, Vietnam Scenery Travel Agency focus on operating and developing Eco-Tourism packages. Besides, in order to improve the understanding for eco-tourists, our tour guides not only need to be good at foreign language but also be knowledgeable about the natural ecological characteristics and local community culture. Before any tours, we shall provide for our tourists all information about Green Tourism. There are:
- Respect the rules, stay on paths, keep voice down and do not disturb wildlife on purpose.
- When wildlife-watching, look for labels that confirm that the guides do not use interfering methods that disturb natural behavior of animals. Prefer watching wildlife from the distance than interacting with wild animals; Feeding and pressuring result in animals changing behavioral patterns.
- Respect other people, their traditions and culture. Do not take photos of people who do not want it; Respect rules like covering body parts when entering a spiritual place etc.
- Do not leave waste. When being in the nature take your waste with you and do not drop it.
