Bamboo Travel cooks up Green Thai Adventure
Award-winning Far East specialist Bamboo Travel has introduced a new trip entitled 'A Green Route Through Thailand' in support of Thailand Reunited's (the Thai Tourist Office) 'Go Green' month for August.
Thailand Reunited is committed to helping to protect the country’s natural resources and provide tourists with tips on how to travel more responsibly and enjoy a more authentic experience whilst on holiday.
The list of ‘Green Tips’ includes booking a hotel which is part of the ‘Green Leaf’ of members, opting for a home stay with a Thai family, enjoying an eco-friendly tour – such as visiting an elephant camp or sightseeing in the national parks and eating & drinking locally produced products.
Bamboo Travel has put together its ‘A Green Route through Thailand’ using many of these ‘Green Tips’ and tour highlights include a visit to the Royal Project at Doi Tung, visiting the Huay Kee Lek Community and driving to Ban Pa Pao for a tour of the village to learn about life in the Thai countryside.
The next stop on the busy itinerary is Lampang, with a visit to an elephant conservation centre before flying south to Bangkok and transferring to Amphawa for a two night stay, to discover traditional Thai lifestyle and fascinating markets.
The final stops on the itinerary will be Phetchaburi, for a chance to witness sugar palm production, and Hua Hin where there is a 4 night stay by the beach in a ‘Green Leaf’ hotel.
The tour can depart any day from November to April and costs from
£2985 pp (2 sharing a room). This includes international and domestic flights, 14-nights’ accommodation, most meals, private transfers and tours and private English-speaking guides.
