Voluntourism

Dragon Expeditions values Altruism as a principle of life. Voluntourism offers a way to practice it in a significant way: doing meaningful things for each other; learning better from each other and knowing more about each other.

Voluntourism is a combination of the words “volunteer” and “tourism.” It is a form of tourism that combines travel with service to the communities where you travel. For those looking for something more meaningful than sightseeing, voluntourism may be for you. Dragon Expeditions offers voluntourism packages to some of the most beautiful sites in China. We ensure that you to get the opportunity to explore new cultures, gain unique first-hand experiences, discover your own capabilities, and make lasting new friendships. Through one of our service projects, you can also offer something valuable back to the places you visit and create life long memories. We heartily welcome volunteers of any skill level who have the heart and mind to spend your vacation with us to serve humanity.

Old Trails

The old trails project attempts to find an integrated solution that both revives the old trails and creates a sustainable form of tourism in Zhonglu. By introducing eco-tourism to Zhonglu, Dragon Expeditions wishes to empower local community members, especially women, to find viable livelihoods within their own village, and to support villagers explore and share effective ways of sustainable development. We hope that this in turn will help to maintain the beautiful, unique village of Zhonglu in perpetuity for its residents and tourists alike. Read More
