Looking to make a difference on your next trip? Try Mekongresponsibletourism.org, an online guide designed for eco-minded travelers. Previously a guidebook, the new site hones in on over 185 carefully vetted, sustainable travel experiences in Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam, and China’s Yunnan and Guangxi provinces.

This issue of  Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia Magazine wrote about four of the highlights from the guide:

STAY: The 38 airy rooms aren’t the only draw at Siem Reap boutique hotel Soria Moria. There’s also a sleek rooftop bar and open-air Jacuzzi—plus, the hotel is 51 percent owned by the friendly local employees.

SHOP: Beautiful artisanal handcrafts are the specialty at Luang Prabang’s Ma Té Sai, whose fair-trade products
are sourced directly from local villages. Look out for hand-woven cotton scarves

EAT: In Hanoi, sit down at a relaxed, French-inspired space and tuck into dishes like duck à l’orange and mousse au chocolat
at Song Thu, a restaurant and culinary training facility that supports underprivileged teens.

DO: Kickstart a Yunnan trekking adventure with a home-brewed coffee at Forest Café, which customizes itineraries to off-the-beaten-track villages and trails.

We at Soria Moria feel honored to be recommended by Mekong Responsible Tourism Guide & Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia Magazine.
