Sustainable tourism to form part of Thailand holidays?

A number of trips have been organised by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to highlight the sustainable options that exist in the country.

Those looking to go on multi centre Thailand holidays may find the event is perfect, as it will demonstrate what various parts of the nation have to offer.

Starting off in the capital Bangkok, the tour will visit Rayong, Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen and Phatthalung, among others.

TAT deputy governor for domestic marketing Thawatchai Arunyik noted the activities on show fit in with the "increasing global emphasis on eco-friendly travel and tourism".

Prapat Choeychom, a senior vice-president of Nissan Motor Thailand, stated: "Thailand now has an excellent road network that is very conducive for international and domestic tourism."

The Mangrove Forest Study Centre in Samut Sakhon and the Organic Vegetables Study Centre and Learning are among the attractions those on the trip can expect to see.

Seven different schemes will be running from August until December.
