SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE TOURISM

At Hidden Saigon, we understand that tourism can impact the lives of those living in the city in both positive and negative ways.

Our founder’s past work in Vietnam and abroad has informed how Hidden Saigon approaches itinerary development.  Sensitivity to the community’s needs is a priority and we work very closely with the local residents, shop keepers, sellers and culture makers to ensure that their voice is heard during the development, presentation and feedback phases.

We try to reduce the negative impact as much as possible by doing the following:

·  Reduced group numbers

·  Multiple locations per tour package to reduce impact       in one

   specific location or neighbourhood

·  Reduced usage of plastic. We encourage you to bring     your own refillable water bottle and reusable bags
