Bringing visitors to some of the regions most remote and pristine area, Travel Authentic Philippines is committed to sustainable and responsible tourism that protects the environment and benefits local people.The UNWTO (United Nations World Tourist Organization) defined sustainable tourism as such: sustainable tourism is tourism that takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities. We fully adhere to this.
We believe that opening new destinations to visitors and managing this in a sustainable and responsible way in cooperation with the communities involved will benefit the conservation of these places and the development and the well-being of these communities. The world is a very fragile place. In the last 50 years a lot has been destroyed already that took centuries to grow and develop.
Helping conservation of our natural resources is our mission. We have that duty to future generations. By managing tourism in a responsible way we actively contribute to that mission. We have to involve communities and visitors in a communal effort to achieve this. We stimulate our office staff and guides to be actively involved in this.
We treat our office staff and guides with the utmost respect and pay them according to the law. We include health insurance and yearly bonus payments.
Tourism, development, poverty alleviation, conservation of precious natural resources and priceless natural wonders, they all go hand in hand. Travel Authentic Philippines wants to pay its share to this.
