Wanderlust Indonesia is a social enterprise which concerns promoting two main point of view in traveling, i.e. Responsible Travel and Voluntourism. We commit to bring traveler meeting the locals and understand the value while giving back to leave positive footprint to the place that the traveler visit.
However we are facing some serious problems, i.e. lack of awarness and skill from the locals to maintain their area, most of locals are trapped by financial matter and also environmental degradation
in the tourism destination because of irresponsible travelers.
This is our call. Wanderlust Indonesia aspires and very eager to contribute making a change by change the way people travel. We would like to create a community-based tourism in every Indonesia’s potential tourism destination. Our big idea is to connect the experience-seeker traveler like you who seek for meaningful and authentic travel experience with the local vilagers who need to be developed.
“Now, through Wanderlust, there is a good reason why you should travel if you know that you could make a change through traveling.”
