5 Favorite Feel Good Travel Experiences in Southeast Asia

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Beyond the amazing architecture and history, your experience will be enhanced by seeing the smiles and bright eyes of the children accompanying you.

Luang Prabang, Laos

In largely agrarian, developing world nations like Laos, one is often not guaranteed education beyond the primary level, if at all. We team with a local NGO that sponsors drop-in English conversation and practice for visitors to talk with or read to locals and children.

Yangon, Myanmar

We partner with an NGO in Myanmar that opened a music center to reintroduce these skills to young, eager students.  On a visit to this center you will be treated to a concert by the students.

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Beyond being an amazing experience, travelers can feel good knowing profits from the program support threatened elephant acquisition, reforestation initiatives, and local community education.

Bulian village, Bali

Hidden away in a secluded corner of Northwest Bali, far from the masses in Bali’s more traditional tourist enclaves lies the village of Bulian, ancestral family home to one of our longest standing and most trusted local partner, guide and friend.

    very personable, fluent in English,

    seven continents."

    Merrie and I met an Orangutan
