About Chao Travellers

Inspiring more conscious travel

As Chao Travellers (pronounced 'chow'; a friendly and universal hello/goodbye greeting) we are committed to coming and going with purpose. In general, we want to travel better–to protect the people and places we love. 

Dreamt up during the Covid-19 pandemic that shut down the world, Chao Travellers (and the Chao Travel Journal) was created to inspire more conscious travel upon the world re-opening. The year 2020 was a reminder of how small and connected the world really is and how we must take care of each other and our planet. 

As technology continues to make the world go round faster, we challenge you to slow down, seek meaningful experiences, and gain a better understanding of the places you go & the people you meet.

With that being said, we have poured our hearts, souls and expertise into the Chao Travel Journal and we are so excited to share it with you who in turn will share it with the world!

Let's Travel Better :)

We have partnered with TreeEra whose 1:Tree program plants one tree for every package we ship.

Together, we can offset our carbon footprint and help fight climate change. 

Stay tuned for updates on our CO2 offset and how many trees we've planted with your help!

Travel better + plant a tree.
Imagine where we'll be?
