Responsible tourism: Ha Giang hill tribe trek and homestays
Small group: We limit our group to a maximum of 10 persons, our members are informed on how behave while trekking and staying there with the locals.
Local guide: They were born in Ha Giang and have learnt from the development of this town, they speak English, Vietnamese and the tribal languages like Tay and Dao so as for the bridge of the locals and tourists. We sometimes work with the Tay and Dao to be our tour guides, especially when we support the work of the locals.
Homestay: We spend two nights in the Tay village (Thon Tha), we pay them directly on each trip and our travelers have chance to learn so much more about their culture and customs. Rotation of families for homestay in Thon Tha (Ha Giang) is at our priority since this really makes everyone in the village happy and willing to do tourism.
Local food: As soon as we come to the homestay, we ask the Tay in Thon Tha to cook dinner for us, they will use their homemade vegetable, fishes, chicken for our delicious meals. So our money stays here.
Environment: We train our guides while trekking and visiting Thon Tha village in Ha Giang, we pick up trash when possible to make the village clean and to set the example to others, we also put the environmental awareness in our conversation with the locals so that they can do it themselves.
Culture: We stay in local homestay and experience different ethnic minority cultures. And of course we want to introduce it to the world. So, if we want to gain this goal, we should preserve it for the next generation. By booking culture shows, we can not only help the local raise income, but also contribute in conserving their ancient culture from time by time.
