Our goal is that WAFORT’s responsible tourism criteria, made under Vietnamese conditions, becomes a label with which companies can more easily practice their sustainable strategy.
Created on February 22, 2022 in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam, Responsible Tourism Community – WAFORT takes action and calls for practical action to protect cultural diversity, biodiversity, development, specific changes from all members joining WAFORT in particular, and tourists, tourism participants Generally speaking.

Together we are working on the Vietnamese language website dulichcotrachnhiem.org, Facebook page Du Lịch Có Trách Nhiệm and various communication channels to disseminate information, criteria, products related to responsible tourism to tourism companies and Vietnamese tourists. Why not in French or English: we want to raise awareness among local travellers. Even though it is very difficult with the current level of development, WAFORT tries every day to make waves to improve the situation.
With the slogan “WE ACT FOR RESPONSIBLE TOURISM”, we want our members (companies) to take action.
Our goal in the near future is that WAFORT’s responsible tourism criteria, made under Vietnamese conditions, becomes a label with which companies can more easily practice their sustainable strategy.
The beginning is done but to keep going, it takes much more effort.
