Being Responsible

It's about the communities, society and the environment

The concept of responsible tourism is one of the founding principles of Expique. Our aim is to be one of the most responsible travel companies in Thailand. Hopefully even one of the most responsible travel companies in Asia! However, what does being responsible actually mean to us?

Responsible Tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.”

While we believe in creating truly amazing experiences for travellers, in doing so we aim to ensure that they also respect and benefit the local communities & culture. In addition where possible we will try to ensure that they are friendly to the environment (and wildlife). We believe that our activities should support the local communities rather than have negative impacts on them.

Key ways that Expique aims to be responsible are:

  • Help tourists understand the local cultures and social issues
  • Support the local economy through spending locally and creating jobs
  • Give back to the communities we visit
  • Look for ways to limit impact on the environment, whether it be on a tour or in our office
