Volunteering, environment, plastic-free, green and responsible travel

Many people want to do good when they travel. In some cases, however, well-meaning travellers can do more harm than good – even with the best of intentions. Therefore, we have compiled a selection of books about volunteering abroad, eco-tourism, green, meaningful, sustainable and responsible travel.

Culture, history, food, travel guides and destination related reading

Rich in culture, history and natural beauty, the Mekong region has a lot to offer. We find reading up a little bit on the destination before you go can enhance the overall travel experience. We also love the food in the region and have selected a range of books filled with authentic family recipes, travelogues, stories and a fascinating journey into some of the relatively undiscovered, but yet delicious cuisines of the Mekong region.
