We believe that being a leading travel management company is not just about delivering great service to great clients, but it is also about giving care to the host communities, environments, the destination / countries and the internal and external stakeholders of the company to ensure that our clients’ travel will not have a negative but rather a positive impact to the destination they visit.
First step to be a responsible company is to be a legal company. And being a legal company, we pledge to respect Cambodia' laws, degrees and other legislative announcement.
Second step is to promote and implement sustainable tourism, respecting the rights of human beings, especially of children. Marine and other wildlife and the nature in whole needs to be protected so that tourism has a minimal impact on Cambodia' environment.
We have a strong commitment to protect our environment. Our tours are designed to have a minimal impact on nature, wildlife and communities.
We aim to reduce single use plastic to the absolute minimum and offer clients possibilities to design their trip 100% plastic free.
We extend our own high standards also to our suppliers to make sure the whole supply chain is respecting the environment.
In order to make a difference, Asia Natural Tours supports actively different projects to bring a direct impact to communities and the environment.
This is achieved with financial funding of projects but also with aware rising efforts in local and remote communities and within our partner network.

What Does Our Team Think?
The focus on sustainability and environment friendly tourism is more and more demanded from our western customer base. I personally wish that these important changes, will one day become the global standard. I truly believe that our success depends on each one of us.
Tours & Event Manager
To me, sustainable tourism plays an important roll for our society. Tourism is a main sector in Cambodia' economy, so if tourism is sustainable it will insure for the community a proper daily life, social welfare, and academic progress. It will give many different job opportunities to many and more people.
Business Developm. Manager Asia & Middle East
I feel that a sustainable and responsible tourism is a very important contribution not just for the environment but especially for the affected communities. We as a travel agent need to take responsibility and promote sustainable tourism products and we need to encourage our customers and suppliers to work on a common goal.
Angkor Kids Center (AKC)
Asia Natural Tours believes that education is the key to a sustainable change, and a holistic developmental approach which empowers children, parents, teachers, and communities to make the positive changes they want to see in their lives.
For this reason ANT is financially supporting the "Angkor Kids Center (AKC)" since the beginning of the project.
Samnag Chhon, Co founder of ANT, was also responsible for the founding of Angkor Kids Center in the first place, and dedicates a big part of his private life to the wellbeing of the project and the children attending classes at AKC.
Angkor Kids Center (AKC) is a private, non-profit, non-political, non-religious community-based educational center established to help educate children in Somrong Village, Siem Rep Province.
The center is based in the Eastern part of Somrong village, 27 km away from the provincial center with a population of approximately 2,500 people.
AKC’s mission is to aid rural Angkorian communities in improving their own standards of living, with a focus on increasing access to the rare but compulsory education in English lessons and cultivating techniques.
Our informal education center takes initiatives; AKC is supporting education for more than 443 families in one village, primarily.
