Do Good Tourism

By

“The dominant ideology [in voluntourism] is that doing something is better than doing nothing, and therefore, that doing anything, is reasonable” Kate Simpson

As the travel industry becomes increasingly segmented, Malaysia finds itself ideally positioned to take advantage of a developing niche in the market called “Volun-Tourism” which taps into a growing urge for travellers to do good during their time off.  No longer is sitting at the beach sipping a brightly coloured drink with a miniature umbrella everyone’s idea of the perfect getaway, instead travellers are willing to pay good money to get involved with Malaysia’s iconic nature and wildlife.

In this episode we talk to Leo Biddle, The Great orang-utan Project, Arafat, Kebun Kaki Bukit and more.
