Voluntourism or Volunteer travel or volunteer vacations
Maybe something or a new phrase for you ear. Well voluntourism has starting to be popular these days.
In Voluntourism there is no 5 star treatment, 5 star hotel, spa and sauna, shopping at high class boutique, enjoying a cozy dinner and anything that give your pleasure.
So what is eco tourism?
Riding on a 4 wheel drive and hit the forest ? No
Eco-tourism is more on ‘conserving’. Conserve the environment so that it can improve the well being of the locals – The International Ecotourism Society (TIES).
So when you think about to build something to attract tourist in an area that is natural, you must think to leave it as it is so that it will not destroyed by human development. If not with minimal impact on it such as forest cutting.
Do you ever heard about Raleigh? What I know that I remember riding on my Grandfather Raleigh when I was a little kid. But that’s a bicycle. This Raleigh expedition is not a bicycle expedition but a charity expedition to make a difference, get me?
Raleigh is like a charity organization that based in England… Interesting is that they also have expedition in Malaysia and they called it Borneo Expedition. They first went to Sabah in 1987 and since 2003 Raleigh have run over 20 expeditions in Sabah, North Borneo.
