Travel for Good
Tours in Asia which uplift local communities, with sustainability at their heart

Bushbaby and our partners in Asia, EXO, are working to ‘build back better’ through sustainable tourism. We both believe the benefits of responsible travel run deeper and when done right, also provide a more enjoyable and inspiring experience for you. Travel for Good is an initiative borne of the knowledge that, when communities and environments are supported and uplifted through tourism, travellers also benefit. By analysing their day tours to identify benefits and themes, EXO have created an array of options allowing you to have experiences of a lifetime while making a positive impact on the places you visit.  Let us know if you’d like us to add any to your Asian adventure!

Cultural Heritage

A big part of what makes Asia so magical is their rich, diverse and colourful cultures which have been passed down from generation to generation for millennia. These tours offer guests fascinating insight into local traditions and history, but also create a financial impetus for locals to protect these for future generations.

Community Empowerment

Community Empowerment Tours promote sustainable development, support local businesses, and empower community members to take an active role in shaping their own future. By participating in these tours, travellers can develop a deeper connection with local culture while also supporting their efforts to build a more equitable and just society.

Nature & Wildlife

Asia presents a suite of options for nature and wildlife lovers matched by no other place on Earth; sea or land. It contains the planet’s highest peaks in the Himalayas, the oldest rainforests in Borneo and the most biodiverse coral reefs in the Coral Triangle. See it all with our nature and wildlife tours in Asia.

Low Carbon

Low Carbon Tours prioritize the reduction of carbon emissions in all aspects of travel. Where possible this includes eco-friendly transportation options such as train, bikes public transport, or electric vehicles, accommodations with low energy usage, and activities that showcase local conservation efforts or support local businesses. 

Undiscovered Asia

Most come to Asia to see its iconic highlights but leave with memories of the magical, hidden places they discovered along the way. Our Undiscovered Asia tours turn the standard idea of touring around. Hidden, seldom-seen places are the primary focus, while still reserving time to check out the iconic highlights.

Homestay

What better way to experience the soul of a destination than through the eyes of its people? Homestay experiences are the ultimate form of cultural immersion. These exclusive encounters allow guests to interact and mingle with locals in our destinations for intimate and transformative cultural encounters like no other.
