Overview

Do you want a holiday that bypasses too familiar haunts and gives you a greater depth of experience? Do you want a holiday that is enriching for you - and for the locals at your destination? If you do, and believe that your trip should give local communities a fair deal (so often denied them) as well as being fun, then this book is for you.

This fully revised second edition of The Ethical Travel Guide is the essential resource for responsible global travel, providing a wealth of new ideas for your next holiday. The extensive directory has been updated and expanded, listing hundreds of places to visit and stay in countries all over the world. From sustainable farming in Ecuador to luxury culinary breaks in Crete, there is something for every taste and budget.

A thorough introduction gives a background to the many ethical and practical issues involved, including a new section on travel and climate change. Combining thoughtful guidance with comprehensive listings, this is the essential guide for anyone interested in ethical, fair and sustainable tourism.
