All Points East are very proud to announce we are the 2010 winners of the Tourism Authority of Thailand Green Award, for Best UK Tour Operator for Local Communities in Thailand. The award is given in conjunction with responsibletravel.com, who’s Director, Justin Frances said “All Points East are an excellent example of a tour operator with long-standing commitments to providing tours that work with and preserve the traditions of local people. Their off-the-beaten-track itineraries provide a focus on bringing the benefits of tourism to rarely-visited communities, employ 75% Thai national guides, and visit 100% locally run restaurants. They visit local markets as alternatives to souvenir shops, and insist their travellers only visit sites with minimal negative impacts to wildlife and the environment.”
Thanks very much to all our staff and collaborators who made this Best UK Tour Operator for Local Communities in Thailand award possible. More details can be seen here on Responsible Travel
