Thailand to boost ecotourism for attracting visitors

Published on : Monday, February 6, 2017

ThailandLast year, around 800,000 foreign tourists last year came to Thailand for visiting villages, natural sites, communities and hill tribes across the Kingdom. More than 2 million Thai tourists also pursued these interests. They interacted with like-minded tourists, enjoying the eco-tourism theme.

 

Such destination appealed to visitors from the U.K., the Netherlands, France, Scandinavia, the United States, Australia and New Zealand. Number of ecotourism visitors from foreign countries is expected to reach 1 million within a year or two. Thailand enjoys being among one of the top 10 tourist destinations in the world, with nearly 30 million foreign visitors per year.

 

It is now attempting to mark its presence in adventure sports and ecotourism segments. According to Neeracha Wongmasa, the Thai Ecotourism and Adventure Travel Association (TEATA) president, “As the new president, I will maintain and continue all of the long-term policies that the association has laid out for years. However, my priority jobs are to develop ecotourism and adventure travel to meet with higher-level international standards along with improving internal management.”

 

She is keen to give shape to ecotourism and adventure travel in Thailand. She said ecotourism and community-based activities would be integral to the sustainability of the overall tourism sector, in Thailand as well as in other countries. She said that people need to learn about ecotourism and deal with local and global visitors. TEATA will soon meet with teachers working at schools in Singapore to encourage them to bring students to Thailand for ecotourism experiences.
