Audley Travel

"Given up on Audley an outfit... which has gone downhill since it was Asian Journeys." Dave and Mandy at PMP
Audley travel "The website of this posh English travel company has fairly typical and patronising guff: From the stone-age tribes hidden in Sulawesi's remote forests to the devout Hindus making their daily sacrifices at Bali's countless temples and shrines, life here proceeds at a different pace, a gentle pageant of custom and tradition in lush, verdant landscapes of great beauty." Cached
"Audley Travel is one of the few tour operators which travels to Burma, one of the world's most brutal military dictatorships. Tourism helps prolong the existence of the illegitimate regime. Human-rights abuses connected to tourism include forced labour, which has been used to develop many tourist facilities, while more than a million people have been evicted from their homes to make way for hotels, airports and golf courses.... Audley Travel claims to work with Tourism Concern 'to ensure that our own policies and commitments are effective'. Tourism Concern would like to make clear that this is a false statement and that we have never worked with Audley Travel. We urge that the tourism boycott of Burma continues." -Francesca Leadlay Tourism ConcernLondon N7. Your letters Letters The Observer
