So you want to travel, but you also want to look after the planet. Here's how you can minimise your impact, but still see the world.
There are plenty of experiences and accommodation providers that do good for the world, allowing travellers to indulge in what they love while leaving minimum impact.
Some of the world’s best eco experiences can be found in Asia. Throughout Vietnam, North India and Indonesia, you’ll find plenty of ways to enjoy yourself while treading as lightly as possible.
Gayana Marine Resort, Borneo
Striking a balance between ecology and luxury, Borneo’s Gayana Marine Resort offers 45 plush, overwater villas. Spend your days in a tropical paradise, surrounded by lapping ocean, dense jungle and enchanting mangrove forest. What sets Gayana apart is its dedication to sustainability. The onsite Marine Ecology Research Centre – the only of its kind in the world, located on an island resort – focusses on the regeneration of coral reefs and endangered giant clams.
