Fuelled by a passion for responsible travel and flavoured by the rich and varied history and culture of the Mekong region, Mekong Experiences consists of a small but dedicated team of responsible travel professionals with years of hands-on experience from the tourism and hospitality sector. With a few passport stamps of their own, they have a balanced view of what works well for travellers and what doesn’t, and put great focus on responsible travel, tourism and hospitality practices with the aim to help develop, communicate and promote responsible travel products.
