Review

Hurrah for TETG then, which proves that, rich or poor, we don't have to stay at home to save the planet, and travel needn't necessarily involve excessive consumption and retrospective remorse...Easy to read and strangely compelling, TETG is an inspriration.' New Consumer 'How to travel ethically: read the Ethical Travel Guide' Evening Standard 'From simple local-style holidays, treks, construction projects in Tibet, art holidays, and culinary and luxury retreats, there is something to suit every taste and budget. This is the essential resource for responsible global travellers.' HippyShopper 'A crucial read for any environmentally-aware traveller' Ian Waller, Real Travel Magazine 'As ever, Tourism Concern is at the forefront of efforts to ensure that the benefits of tourism are shared much more equitably' Jonathon Porritt, Co-Founder of Forum for the Future 'A directory of exciting and inspirational holiday experiences which do not exploit or damage the local community to suit all tastes and budgets.'

Format: Paperback
Ethical Tourism, responsible travel, Fair Trade Travel what ever you want to call it is in its early days, but already it is showing that is capturing the imagination of people who want a more intense experience of world cultures and people as well as ensuring that the tourist pound is ending up in the pockets of the community visited and not some multinational tour operator or hotel chain.If you are going to travel the world The Ethical Travel Guide is a great route planner both to help you understand the cultures, environment of people as well as contribute the maximum while disturbing the minimum. It pulls out innovative / community tourist projects all over the world which will give the traveller a series of unique experiences of the culture, people and environment of the region.

The only poor area of the book is on air travel- the advice on the EU Carbon Trading scheme is just plain wrong- air travel is not included at the moment in the EU tarding scheme, nor does the scheme give money to carbon cutting schemes. All evidence is that plane travel is just plain bad for the planet- trains, boats and buses on the other hand let you see the world up close.

not much in the US 2 Feb. 2007
By Jordan Michel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I skimmed through this one in a bookstore, trying to decide between it and Lonely Planet Code Green.

This one definitely seemed to have the advantage in terms of unique and diverse travel ideas. It's longer and fits more ideas into each page.

But it had only one page on ethical travel in the US. At least 65% of it was devoted to Africa and Asia. There must be some ethical travel opportunities that don't require an international flight.

If you're looking for unique ideas and can affford international travel, get this book. But it doesn't have much to offer nearby.

As a side note, the glossier Lonely Planet Code Green, though it has more ideas in the US, is also far from perfect (see my review of that book for more detail).
