Travel Tips

As travellers, it should always be a top priority to travel responsibly. 

We already leave a substantial carbon footprint just by flying to our travel destinations, so that’s even more reason to make a positive impact when we get there. 

There are many small steps you can take to becoming a responsible traveller, and we highly encourage you to educate yourself before travelling to Sumatra.

Here are some things you can do to minimise your footprint:

Do not leave any rubbish on the ground: You would think this would go without saying;  however, there are some questionable humans who think it’s ok to throw trash on the ground.

Respect the local culture: Be courteous of the local culture and act in such a way that leaves a good impression. 

Learn a little of the local language (hello and thank you is the minimum), greet the locals in a polite manner, and respect dress codes & traditions.
