A DUTY TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY
Despite significant economic progress in the last few decades many parts of China, Russia and Mongolia are still very much part of the developing world with large numbers of urban and rural poor.
For most people these destinations are long haul and the only practical way to arrive or depart there is by plane. It is possible to carbon offset your flight and you can ask us about more details about this.
Of course, much of your journey is going to be by train which is not only a more interesting way to traverse these countries but is also far more of an enviromentally friendly way to travel.
Unfortunately, along with spectacular sights and scenery you will also see examples of the downside of this region’s rapid economic growth on your travels.
In such a vast and distant part of the world what can we do to make a difference? We believe that we can all help a little and take a two pronged approach to this through Cultural Interaction on your trip and practical help to a respected charity focused on Environmental Protection.
Responsible Travel is all about cultural understanding and respect; engaging and interacting with the culture you are visiting. This is both fun and rewarding and it is those chance meetings that can really make a holiday special. In your Trip Guidebook there are a few handy cultural tips to make sure you have the cultural knowledge to get along in these fascinating and diverse countries.
