Nowadays, community-based tourism has become one of the main trends of international travelers who love to experience unique and diversified cultures of local communities. Community-based tourism is capable of bringing real benefits to local people, including: Increased direct incomes from tourist services which sometimes significantly exceed those from agricultural doing; improved infrastructure; jobs creation; strengthened cultural exchange; raised social awareness about culture preservation…
Tourists coming to Viet Nam could make their choice among various community-based tourism products as visiting traditional handicraft villages, exploring nature, experiencing a farmer’s life, discovering unique cultures of ethnic minorities… Tourism has been considered one of the most effective tools for poverty alleviation in Viet Nam, of which community-based tourism plays a significant role. Community-based tourism development in Mai Chau (Hoa Binh Province) or Sa Pa (Lao Cai Province) are some of successful stories.
Beside provinces of Hoa Binh and Lao Cai, many other localities have been pushing hard to develop community-based tourism. Tourists will have chances to go fishing with local fishermen in Hoi An or to experience a farmer’s life in the Mekong Delta...
Community-based tourism is a good direction of Viet Nam tourism. However, in the process of development, not only positive achievements but negative consequences have also been seen. Effective solutions should be taken into account so as to ensure environment protection, culture preservation, benefits of local communities as well as of other relevant stakeholders in community-based tourism, thus attaining sustainable development goals

Despite the rapid growth of Vietnam's economy over the years, many things remains to be done in order to help people who are unfortunate in life.

They are born with severe physical and mental defects. There are over 34 million children in Vietnam with many Vietnamese children living in poverty and disabilities. They face hunger, lacking proper education, inadequate health care, homelessness or substandard housing! These children face a bleak future and especially for those who live in the remote mountainous area. Not only they face lesser education opportunities, they also have to tend with severe weather and poor living conditions.Looking for chances of helping poor families, homeless orphans and disabled children in Vietnam?

Responsible tourism is an approach to the management of tourism, aimed at maximising economic, socialenvironmental benefits and minimising costs to destinations. Simply put, Responsible tourism is tourism ‘that creates better places for people to live in, and better places to visit’. A responsible tourism approach aims to achieve the triple-bottom line outcomes of sustainable development, i.e. economic growth, environmental integrity and social justice.
The distinguishing characteristic of the approach is the focus on the responsibility of role-players in the tourism sector, and destinations in general, to take action to achieve sustainabletourism development. Responsible tourism is based on the respect of the places that we visit as tourists. The focus of responsible tourism is the communities and its traditions, the environment, the nature and the culture.
Snail Adventure Tours plays as the bridge between host and visitor. Meanwhile, focusing on responsible travel, we strive to travel in a way that respects culture, protects our environment and supports the communities we visit.
Participating in this program, you will not only have the chance to experience daily life with Ethnic minorities people, but also which is the best way to embrace the their traditional cultural values. Especially by teaching English, computer skills and living skills for local people, you will contribute in no small way in creating job opportunities for the disadvantaged groups in the area, such as many unemployed young people who tend otherwise to migrate to cities or urban areas to find jobs and earn money. Your contributions do not only create jobs for the disadvangtaged youth but also support in conserving the hill tribes’ traditional language, music and culture.
Many tourists when visiting Vietnam may have heard about some famous places while incredibly mesmerizing, is becoming saturated with tourists. And this is what primarily differents Ha Giang from other highland areas where many ethnic minority people gave up their farming work to join vendor groups to follow tourists to earn money. All of those mean they will make their own unique identities to be blurred as well as cause disorder and tarnish the image of Vietnam in the eyes of international friends.
Therefore in order to minimize some bad effects of tourism on the original beauty of this village, we have being implemented a project about Responsible Tourism that helps to preserve culture of the ethnic people, create job opportunities for local people and protect the living environment also.
Vietnam is home to one of the richest avifaunas of any Southeast Asian country, with a number of endemic, near-endemic, and highly threatened species found there. Indeed, no other mainland Southeast Asian country can boast as many endemics, with several unique forms being recently elevated to full species status by ornithologists and taxonomists. Although intense agriculture, population pressures, and the long era of strife have taken their toll, several fine reserves and national parks dot the length of the country and shelter some of Southeast Asia's rarest birds and mammals.
Our plexible itineraries will allow us to sample some of the richest sites that are accessible to tourists. Near Hanoi, the lovely forests of Cuc Phuong NP will provide us with a few days of exciting birding in lovely limestone karst forest, and Tam Dao NP gives us a taste of an avifauna with strong Himalayan affinities. We'll continue on to Annam and Cochinchina, where we'll visit three of the richest stops in the south: the mountainous Da Lat area, one of the most important centers of endemism in the country; the Di Linh area, home to a number of range-restricted birds unlikely to be seen elsewhere; and Cat Tien NP, arguably the richest lowland forest birding site in the country and a wonderfully comfortable place to finish up our tour.
