Ethical Travel Guide for only £10!!

Posted: Mar 7, 2013

Now in its second edition, the Ethical Travel Guide is much more than an innovative and stimulating guide to some of the most unique and exciting holiday experiences around. The Guide is key tool in Tourism Concern’s fight to ensure that local people always benefit from tourism.

Thousands of grass roots, low impact, high sustainability initiatives all over the world struggle to tell tourists they exist. Very few of these inspirational initiatives have the resources or skills to market themselves in an industry dominated by multinational companies.

The Ethical Travel Guide is a chance for local communities in destination countries, who are often extremely poor, and dedicated local entrepreneurs to talk to their customers, to promote a more authentic and local experience which they are uniquely able to provide.

The Ethical Travel Guide lists over 400 places in more than 70 countries, many of which you won’t find in conventional guidebooks. Entries include places to stay, organisations, trips, tours and projects, from canoeing the backwaters of the Amazon to luxury breaks in the Indian Ocean. You can stay in very simple, local style accommodation or more sophisticated hotels - but they all have one thing in common - they all support the local economy, bringing much needed wealth to communities.

While this unique Guide provides holidaymakers with fantastic ideas for authentic and guilt free holidays, it also raises vital awareness of the negative impacts of tourism. A hard-hitting introduction by Polly Patullo, journalist and travel writer, highlights the key issues - such as displacement of local people, cultural erosion and environmental degradation.

The guide normally sells for £15 but you can purchase one today for just £10*. This is a must have publication for anyone interested in ethical travel.
