About this book

A guide to new types of holidays organised not by international chains, but by tribal peoples and rural villagers from Africa, Asia, Australia, North and South America and the Pacific islands. Describes hundreds of different holidays in many of the most beautiful areas of the world, with full contact details and a range of further information. For the traveller, they offer uniquely exciting opportunities, far from the usual tourist ghettos, and they are based on fair trade, benefiting local communities and giving them hope of a better future.
