Our core belief is that everyone can be "doing good simply by traveling." We view community based tourism as a form of development tool that can support our partner communities.
With that in mind, our local friends and us design tours that focus on inclusiveness and responsibility. We want to give you the experience of the lifetime, experience real Thailand, taste all the exotic food, and learn all about Thainess. All the while know that your travels are contributing towards improving the lives of local communities.
It is a form of tourism that takes environmental, social and cultural sustainability into account. It is managed and owned by the community, for the community, with the purpose of enabling visitors to increase their awareness and learn about the community and local ways of life.
– REST Project, 1997
Everyone in our team gets down into the field and builds relationships with the local communities in order to learn their actual needs. We work with the locals to create an action plan by contributing our expertise in tourism. With a goal to create immersive traveling experience for you, it is crucial to understand the perspective and preferences of locals.
We love what we do. It's fast-paced, it's fun, and it's rewarding. Our culture is driven by the vision to improve livelihoods of local communities we work with through tourism – we are driven by this purpose. If you share the same values and would like to join us, shoot us an email!
We work with lots of really bright and kind-hearted partners and are lucky to have won a few trophies of recognition. These relationships and bits of praises motivate us greatly. Thank you so much!
