How do you judge of our current world? You may think that the world is colorful with splendid places and unique culture. Visiting the locals’ Felt House in eastern Tibet; celebrating the traditional festivals of Miao minority in southeast of Guizhou; drifting down the Yulong River on locals’ bamboo raft in Guilin; those experiences are fantastic and impressive. But can you imagine the world after 50 years? In fact, the high-speed development of the tourism industry is destroying our earth.
As a travel agency of 10 years, we have witnessed that natural landscapes were destroyed by overabundant visitors; we have seen that a large number of cultural heritages were losing their original appearance under the demand of commercial market. The snow mountains are not beautiful any more because of the over-emission of carbon; inconsistent constructions are standing in the middle of the rural. Once we even doubt the meaning of our travel service. Every year we have about ten thousand of international visitors travelling in China which may have bad impact on our earth. How would our descendants think of us?
We realize that if principles of sustainable tourism are not put into action, then each one of these destinations will lose their appeal, environmental beauty and ultimately, their profitability. Now it is time for us to change the products of our service. In order to leave a better environment to our descendants, the services provided by us should be sustainable. Our function as a travel agency is to ensure that we’re giving back more to the communities and the natural surroundings that we help you to visit than what is being taken away in our travels. Preserving cultural heritage and conserving and replenishing the natural environment, while improving the lives of local people, is the essence of our way of travelling and is integrated into every decision and action we take at HRC Travel Service.
With our rich experiences, educational background and 10 years’ work experience in tourism industry, we are responsible to provide services in accordance with the standards of “sustainable tourism”. We hope our service can not only satisfy your requirements of the trip, but also benefit local communities’ cultural inheritance, environment protection and ecological development.
Thanks for your attention and your choosing of our service. Let’s start sustainable trips for a better environment and our descendants!
