The Child Safe Traveller
This report presents findings of research carried out in Bangkok, Thailand, between April and May 2013. Building on Child Safe Tourism: The Tourist Perspective, this study looked deeper into tourist perceptions of child exploitation in connection with tourism in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam. It also assessed tourist reactions to child safe tourism communications. A total of 268 tourists from 39 countries completed surveys and interviews. The study found tourists to South East Asia want:
i) clear information about how to be a child safe traveller,
ii) more consumer choices that align with child safe tourism, and
iii) to be part of the change, led by governments and the tourism industry.
