Bamboo Travel cooks up Green Thai Adventure

10th August 2012 Print

In support of Thailand Reunited’s ‘Go Green’ month for August (created by the Thailand Tourist Office) – Far East specialist Bamboo Travel has introduced a new two-week trip entitled ‘A Green Route through Thailand’ which features hotels and excursions recommended for their green credentials and also known for offering a genuine, cultural Thai experience.

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.
