Ecotourism, or green travel, has been popular in Thailand for many years due to an abundance of natural resources, from the pine forests in the north to the awesome maritime caves in the south.
There is a wide range of ecotourism activities to enjoy in Thailand. These include trekking and hiking, nature and wildlife observation, bird watching, horseback riding, mountain biking, bamboo rafting, rock climbing and much more. Ecotourism has been diligently promoted by the Thai government and the Tourism Authority of Thailand for more than 20 years.
The fastest growing sector of the travel business for the last decade, ecologically minded tourism now accounts for about 25% of the industry. Long the nucleus of eco-tourism in Southeast Asia, Thailand has been going green for decades. Visitors are encouraged to inquire about the ecological impact of any activity they pursue in-country.
