  11. 11. Policy <ul><li>Information   – within our brochure and trip notes we provide our customers with information on how they can act responsibly whilst on holiday, including details of local projects they may visit whilst away.

  12. 12. Policy <ul><li>Itinerary Development   – when planning our trips, we consider how each one can run responsibly. Can we source a homestay? Where can we use local transport, instead of a charter bus? Is there a project we can support, or is there a visit where fees paid will go towards environmental development? </li></ul><ul><li>Once the trip is operating, it is audited on these things and many more.

  15. 15. Policy <ul><li>Projects  – we have a number of partnerships with charities and projects, which we support by donating money that we get from every customer that travels on specific trips. We have ask each of our customers for a $ 1 donation to our Green Revolution Foundation.

We will always realize about how much the intended customers willing to pay. Moreover, we think that the customer is often still sensitive for price discounts and special offers so, we will sometimes try to give the discounts, leasing price and option to our customers. </li></ul>

  35. 35. Recommendation & Solution <ul><li>From the establishment of our company we find that we still have less experience and knowledge of running the business and the ecotourism management. Sometime we confront the problems and mistakes so, we think that we should consult some ecotourism specialists and the businesspeople as well as we need to study more about the business strategies and the ecotourism issue and proper management in the each area to enhance our experiences. </li></ul>
  36. 36. Recommendation & Solution <ul><li>We sometimes face on the coordination problems within the organization such as the staff misunderstand about their assigned works or the misunderstand about the scope of work between each department. We think that this is a very general problem from the new company because we really don’t know how to deal with each different type of people or even the colleagues who we feel unfamiliar with. For the solution, we highly recommend to have a small meeting between the managers of each department and their staff so that the staff of our company will know each other more than ever, they can learn how to work together. It’s also a good way to build the unity and harmony within the company. </li></ul>
  37. 37. Recommendation & Solution <ul><li>We experience the networking problems between our company and the suppliers because we are a new and small company in tourism field so, it’s not easy for us to get the corporation from the big or famous suppliers and other suppliers are not sure about our credibility and stability so, they don’t want to work with us. We can solve this problem by establish our credibility to the public especially, the corporate suppliers and let them know that we will benefit each other and share the market together. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Recommendation & Solution <ul><li>We have the low budget to invest for our business but the first time investment need to spend big amount of money so, we have to loan from the government that leads to the non-profit or the loss for the first period of running business. </li></ul>
  39. 39. Recommendation & Solution <ul><li>We are lack of an appropriate management to conserve and protect the environment while supporting the economy of local community because we are the new ecotourism company with pretty less experience so our company confront on the using of natural resource in improper way. Therefore, we think that we should sincerely spend the effort to study about the current issue of our ecotourism destination and study about the formal relevant case study then we will get an ideas to create the proper management to sustain natural and cultural resource while, corporate with the local communities to work together and boost their economy. </li></ul>
