For Peng Luo, Ecotourism is the key philosophy of our business, not only a title to advertise. In way of authentic, memorable and unique nature and community based travel activities which welcome, involve and satisfy visitor, she aim to benefit locals, contribute to conservation, as well as boost environmental education. Real ecotourism is quite new in China compared to mass tourism, but it’s getting more and more attentions. This is the best age full of opportunities, but also worst age full of chanllenges in this new rising market, since it’s still chaotic. Marketing and differentiation are still the biggest challenge.

Since their cooperate with local nature reserves and scientists, as well as our long relationship, they design all the projects based on the grounded needs. When everything is based on real local life, it best promise the authentic experiences of the customers. She hope to engage more in Asian ecotourism business to learn more from neighbors both in theory and practise. Besides, it would be another distribution channel for our products. The most thing I hope from AEN is experiences sharing from the members.

Dream Nepal Travle & Tours (Pvt.) LTd., Nepal 

Dream Nepal was established in 1999 with the aim to offer our guest ‘The True Nepalese Experience’. Our company was conceived by a group of experienced, energetic and enterprising professionals, whose backgrounds range from travel, tourism and hospitality management to education, catering and spiritualism. The one thing all of them had in common was a desire to improve the quality and range of tourism activities in Nepal.


Bijaya Pradhan said ecotourism means the combination of culture, nature, and environment and with this three things combined together then there is a blend of Ecotourism which helps in the protection of the local culture, nature and the environment. It also helps in income generation for the local people of that particular area or region. He added that There is a high potential of Ecotourism Development in the Asian region, though back in his days in Nepal there were challenges to overcome, such as let the people know what Ecotourism means and what are the benefits once they go through it and also to convince the local as well as the central government, which is time consuming. Fortunately, in 1998, he talked with the Nepal Tourism Board and SNV - Kathmandu and came up with an idea of establishing Sustainable Tourism Network. He said by engaging with AEN, he could also engage in sharing his experience and knowledge with other companies, organizations, people, institutions, and would love to make the best destination in the world. For this, he added, we all have to join hands in developing a policy recognized or indorsed by the state government. Together we all can make the development of Ecotourism & Sustainable Tourism here in the Asian region so we as an AEN member should come up

For Samir Thapa, ecotourim means to save the nature by promoting and creating the awareness of ecology of Livinghood. It is directly related to the human life and how it is existing because of eco system of the world. He see that Asia is very much rich on its natural resources of ecology with vast diversion of each region. mso it's very important to save it and in the meantime to promote it. This continent is very fragile due to lack of awareness and education, we really need to promote it without exploring it. The challenges to implement ecotourism in Nepal is keep the ecology intact by creating the awareness and maintains the rich cultures of people because this country has diversified in geography with cultures and languages. The literacy rate is not high so there is very high chance to exploration. Also in the name of development, we are not thinking in details to save it's natural essence. 

Samir engages with AEN communities to make Asia a better and more sustainable place to visit by sharing the best common sustainable practice and experience of Ecotourim trends have to be must among all. AEN could be the connecting point for all these communities and play a vital role to exchange the model to another community via its members in various regions. His favorite place is always Nepal to visit all different Mountainous regions where large numbers of communities are based on ecotourism and its century practice to save it.

Let's to explore here and would love to see the Amazon forest of Malaysia. Anything organic food as a by product of Ecotourism would be great for me
