Don’t just see the world. Make it better.
Planet Earth is an amazing place, but it’s far from perfect. Since the very beginning, G Adventures has operated under the belief that travel is an exchange, not a commodity. When you travel with us, you’re giving back as much – if not more – than what you take away, often in ways you’d never expect.

Planeterra Project: New Hope Cambodia
Many young people in communities surrounding Siem Reap do not have access to public schooling because their families are unable to purchase uniforms, books and other necessary materials. Access to education was virtually eliminated during the Cambodian Genocide in 1975 and has since been slowly rebuilding. Siem Reap has also undergone a boom in the tourism industry; income that has yet to reach the surrounding underserviced communities and local people due to lack of affordable certifications and training available. Because of this, there is a cycle of poverty in the region that has been difficult to break. New Hope provides free education and training in relevant subjects to prepare students for careers in the tourism industry.
