What Can I Do to Minimize My Impact?
The best way to minimise your impact while travelling in Vietnam is to be conscious of how you travel. There are a few simple ways to keep your travel eco-friendly.
Hotels in Vietnam do have some eco-friendly measures — the power doesn’t work unless your key card is inserted correctly. You can help by opting to re-use your sheets and towels.
Help fight Vietnam’s trash problem. Limit the amount of plastic and non biodegradable waste you bring in to Vietnam and always try to dispose of your trash in designated areas, even if the locals do not!
Consider the sustainability of local communities as well as the environment. Traveling to places off-the-beaten path can help to spread wealth to communities who need it most and increases the positive relationships between foreigners and locals.
