Description :Thailand offers an abundance of ecotourism opportunities for visitors to minimise their footprint and sustain its beautiful natural environment. Just a short distance from Chiang Mai are small communities in the lush green hills of the high valley. These communities provide a rare glimpse into a simpler lifestyle where there is a harmonious coexistence of people and the abundant natural land. Here, travellers can enjoy a greener visit and get to know and observe local communities where agriculture has been a major part life for centuries, while also putting control over tourism back into the hands of locals.
