Discover the Difference
The world’s leading scientists report that the environment of the planet is getting worse. Human society is in jeopardy from the accelerating decline of the Earth’s natural life-support systems. From shrinking Himalayan glaciers to rainforests shrivelling into savannahs, nature is being destroyed at an alarming rate. Particularly hard hit is the diversity of animals and plants, upon which many natural resources such as clean water are based, especially in Asia. The Living Planet report predicts that by 2030, it will take the equivalent of two planets to meet the current demand for resources and according to a Stanford scientist, Earth may soon be approaching its 'tipping point’.
The Asian Geographic Expeditions will make inroads into these areas to support local scientists and innovators who help protect our environment. When you travel with us, you gain access to these places and meet people who are undertaking work that support our Planet. You’re enriched by the knowledge of our experts and guides, and by local experts we meet along the way. And you give back. Simply by taking a trip with Asian Geographic, you support the work of our explorers and researchers. That is the Asian Geographic Difference.
Come back with an enriched experience
Asian Geographic is aware of the impact that tourism can have on local communities and it is our aim to design Expeditions that leave a positive impact on our destinations. We believe we should enable people to explore and enjoy the world without harming it. Where possible, our Expeditions include experiences that directly benefit local communities; we work to support and involve local people to ensure we directly benefit the cultures and the environment of the communities we visit, giving our customers a more enriched experience.
