Eco-tourism in Cambodia
There is not a lot of good information on Educational, Environmentally responsible travel through Cambodia, but I did find the following on a website promoting travel to Cambodia (which means that they have an agenda to push travel and spending in Cambodia — just reminding ya). I also had to heavily edit this article from the original to make grammatical sense in the English language:
With a wide variety of natural recreational activities, you can enjoy cycling, trekking, boating, viewing landscapes, and involving yourself with local livelihood activities like agricultural activities which will immerse you a real combination of communities’ life experiences and natural tourism in Cambodia, a Kingdom of yet explored treasures.
Ecotourism development is an emerging trend being developed for responsible tourists. Ecotourism is a diversified form of tourism contributed to national economic growth. Ecotourism development drives local community to a next stage to local livelihood improvement through alternative incomes, diversified jobs, increased capacity and community empowerment.
Ecotourism development in Cambodian has been progressively developed in the northeastern area, where fabulous biological species, life style and charming regions of the Mekong River, have not yet been completely explored. With ecotourism development, the community no longer predominantly depends on their previous occupations, especially agricultural productivity, but has new opportunities to gain operational skills for ecotourism demands. Tourist involvement in ecotourism activities operated by local community is an act of stepping forwards to poverty alleviation, responding to one of the main millennium development goals.
Through ecotourism activities, negative impact will be minimized, environmental and cultural experiences and respect will be built, experiences for both hosts and visitor will be provided, financial benefit will contribute to conservation, community empowerment will be enhanced , and sensitivity of host environmental, political, social climate issues will be raised.
Cambodian communities are warm-hearted, friendly, and helpful. Tasting ecotourism and other types of tourism Cambodia is looking to serve, you will feel like you make your self at home as we greet you as resident and evoke you to revisit as family. Will you enjoy tasting ecotourism in The Kingdom of Wonder?
Wait no more to see a charming and yet still un-explored region of Southeast Asia.
