Tourism provides a vital source of incomes for local communities & contribute to global sustainable development. Mass tourism threatens biodiversity, damages ecosystems & causes violations of the rights of workers, minorities & local communities. Community-based tourism (CBS) has a catalytic function for economic, social & cultural development, as a complementary source of income to improve standard of living, create jobs, preserve the traditions & protect the environment.
Objectives and Framework
WHY TRAVEL WITH YESD?
We give local people employment, income and learning opportunities so they are directly involved in your tourism experience. Our guides and hosts will give you a special insight into culture and life in Vietnam.
We aim to minimise the negative impacts of tourism on the environment and the local community while contributing positively to local economies. We don’t just talk responsible tourism, we act!
Tours that translate
10% of all profits from our tours go towards a community fund. This money allows us to make infrastructure improvements and provide other important resources to those in need.
