Get the best of your travels while benefiting the local economy and destinations
The EXO Foundation has just released the EXO Cares Booklet, this attractive and convenient pocket size publication was conceived to vehicle responsible practices and maximise the positive impacts of tourism. It is part of the responsible travel policy Exotissimo has engaged into for the benefit of destinations and travelers. The first part gathers cultural and ethical tips explaining specific aspects of Asian etiquette and culture, advice on ethical behaviour that will help travelers to avoid blunders so that their contacts with local people will be more friendly, respectful of local traditions and more enjoyable for both hosts and guests. The second part addresses best practices to minimise environmental footprint and participate to biodiversity conservation.
Last but not least it provides major guidelines on how their holiday can significantly benefit local populations and contribute to poverty alleviation, including a list of shops where they are guaranteed their purchase was made in the country and followed fair trade principles.
Free of charge this small guide will reveal itself a precious holiday companion for all. All travel agents and tour operators interested to convey responsible practices are invited to ask Exotissimo country offices to include it inside their clients’ travel kits. The booklet is also available online at https://exofoundation.org/our-mission.
