Responsible Travel

Travel more meaningfully

The world is facing a climate emergency and future generations are depending on us to protect our Earth. Tourism can have a huge impact on our environment, and travelers are now looking for ways to reduce this impact. At Mai Globe Travels we are committed to responsible and sustainable tourism. So you’ve come to the right place!

We reduce our carbon footprint by offering “slow travel” tours and walking tours; reducing our use of plastics, planting trees and gardening, among other things. We look for and collaborate with trusted partners who share our values. We also strive for ethical practices that give back, support, and respect the local population. We encourage fair trade, work with small businesses, and have projects with local charities to help the underprivileged. We love our host countries and people.

Experiment and Immerse

We believe that immersion is the key to feeling “the pulse” of a destination. Our team of experts has tremendous knowledge of our destinations and can create unique experiences for you. Immerse yourself in a location for 3 or 4 days, in accommodations carefully selected just for you. Take time to connect with the people and the locale, with hands-on experiences such as permaculture, tree planting, or crafts. Learn how to cook Sri Lankan curry or educate yourself on analog forestry.

Travel Differently

We encourage people to move away from rushed itineraries that check destinations off the list. Instead, choose slow travel, which allows you to absorb and discover so much more. Alternatives such as hiking, biking and train travel get you off the beaten path with fewer CO2 emissions, and longer holidays allow you to really get to know your destination and build memories.

Our mission is to offer tours that combine the must-see sites with those off the beaten track, while trying to avoid places that are suffering from mass tourism. The Cultural Triangle in Sri Lanka and Halong Bay in Vietnam are must- see sites, however, we have learned that there are many sites that are equally amazing and less touristy. We’d love to share our experience with you.

We are working to minimize our carbon footprint through changes in our practice and eco-responsible projects. It may take time to reap the benefits, but we need to start now.
