Welcome again to this site. This is our personal sharing over the venture that we have just established in Oct 2015 - Backyard Tour Private Limited. As the challenges are so real that sometimes they become overwhelming to take in, we realized that we are not doing this for our own sake. This is a burden to run a mission for the rural communities that need to have new opportunities in their lives or else, they may see life as meaningless to live for.
Backyard Tour was started purely as a social project in Feb 2015. However, realizing that we managed to arrange five trips in 3 months after establishing the project, we see the potential in empowering the rural communities financially through tourism. In order to run a tour operation in Malaysia, you have to be licensed so the project cannot stays as a project. Thus, Backyard Tour was born.
The journey is still far from being stable and sustainable. We are still looking for ways to improve ourselves and the communities whom we worked with. However, it has to be done. Why? Because this are among one of the few opportunities that the villagers can take in order to survive the increasing cost of living in Malaysia.
