Ecotourism in Asia

What is Ecotourism?


Ecotourism is about ‘uniting conservation, communities, and Interpretation’. This means that those who implement and participate in ecotourism activities should follow the following ecotourism principles:

1. Minimize impact.
2. Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
3. Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts.
4. Provide direct financial benefits for conservation.
5. Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people.
6. Raise sensitivity to host countries’ political, environmental, and social climate.

Ecotourism in Asia

Asia is blessed with some of the most outstanding natural sites and is peppered with interesting and diverse cultures – the perfect blend for Ecotourism. You could cruise along the Kinabatangan River in search of Orangutans in Borneo, or perhaps you prefer to help seahorses and island communities in Cambodia or maybe jungle trek whilst at the same time help to set camera traps to ‘snap’ pictures of what lurks in the Oldest Rainforest in world in Malaysia.
