A new extension to MekongTourism.org and ExploreMekong.org, inspired by ‘The Guide to Responsible Tourism in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam’ has been launched.

The Guide

The Guide

In order to expand the potential readership of the book and the geographical coverage of its valuable content, the ‘Responsible Tourism Guide to the Mekong ’ website was developed and is being administered for the MTCO by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)’s ASEAN Competitiveness Enhancement Project (ACE).

MTCO Executive Director Mason Florence welcomed ACE Project’s initiative. “This is a terrific way for global citizens to learn about and comment on responsible tourism activities in the Greater Mekong Sub-region,” Mr Florence said. “We’re hopeful that this will help build the foundation for a new print edition of the guidebook, which will contain information about responsible tourism activities in all six countries of destination Mekong.”

All pages and posts based on the content of the original book, which was written by Guy Marris, Nick Ray, and Bernie Rosenbloom, and edited by Ken Scott, are tagged “bookcontent”. As the site develops, anyone will be able submit comments, testimonials, and fair criticism on its content, and also make specific recommendations regarding responsible tourism activities in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Guangxi and Yunnan provinces of China for the website’s free publication. Email content@mekongtourism.org.

A publication of the Mekong Tourism Development Project (MTDP), ‘The Guide to Responsible Tourism in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam’ was funded by the Ministry of Tourism Cambodia, the Lao National Tourism Administration and the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism with loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).
