Ecotourism in Thailand – The Essential Guide for your Dream Trip
1. Stay in eco-friendly accommodation
If you’re aiming to contribute to sustainable tourism during your trip to Thailand then you really must consider your accommodation. Whether you fancy staying in a treehouse in Bangkok or a luxury resort in Koh Pha Ngan, we’ve written an article on the best eco resorts in Thailand which focuses on the best options throughout the country including its islands to the mainland.
2. Eat eco-friendly food
There are many great restaurants all over Thailand. Thai food is simply delicious. If you are eating at a restaurant, we recommend you sit down to eat your meal so you avoid any unnecessary packaging.
As we know the vegan or vegetarian diet is generally much better for the environment and there are an endless number of delicious veggie restaurants in the city catering to vegans, vegetarians or those who like to occasionally eat this way. Wherever you are in Thailand you can generally find good vegan and vegetarian restaurants or at least restaurants catering to these diets – just order the basic rice and vegetables or rice and vegetables with egg if there’s any confusion. A few of the best vegan restaurants in Bangkok are Broccoli Revolution, Govinda and May Veggie Home.
3. Choose eco-friendly tours and activities
Regarding ecotourism in Thailand, there are a number of eco friendly tours and activities in the country aimed towards tourists as well as many national parks. Here are a few of our favourites.
1. Elephant Nature Park, Chiang Mai – Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation centre where tourists and travellers can choose between options which range from simply visiting the sanctuary to see the beautiful rescued elephants to actually going into the river and joining the elephants while they’re bathing. There’s also an overnight option for any travellers who want to stay on site and make the most of the experience.
This is truly the type of sustainable tourism we love. Prices start at approximately 76USD for children the price is half of that.
