Take a guide on all tours. You will get a lot of interesting information about the forest and you will be supporting local people to protect the forest and wildlife. Ask your guide and local villagers lots of questions about wildlife and the forest. This will increase everyone's awareness about what is special and interesting to tourists, and will make your tour much better. Bring your own water bottle to minimize plastic waste. Accept people's generosity when offered. Often people will invite you into their homes or to join a ceremony or festival. Don't be shy; Lao people want to get to know you and enjoy having visitors.


Do not go trekking on your own. Yes, it may be cheaper to go on your own, but by doing so you are not supporting local people in the protection of the forests that you walk through. And you might get lost (trails are not marked)! Do not collect plants, wildlife products or anything else that comes from the forest. Local people are allowed to use plants for their daily subsistence, but it is prohibited for outsiders to take anything out of the protected area. Leave them there for the next visitors to enjoy. Do not litter. Please pack out all of your non biodegradable waste and take it back to the town with you. Please do not leave any rubbish in the villages. Villagers are still learning how to manage modern waste (plastic bags, wrappers, bottles/cans) and most villages do not yet have proper waste disposal sites.
