Because I’m traveling with a project related to sustainable development, I would like also to promote “Eco-Tourism” initiatives in South East Asia.
First of all, what is Eco-Tourism ?
It is a form of responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people. Efforts are made to minimize the impact of tourism, building more environmental awareness among the travelers and providing financial benefits for conservation and empowerment of local people.
For this first video interview, you can discover the Fern Resort which is located in Mae Hong Son.
The Fern Resort is a project built with support of funds from the government. A special fund has been established to support the development of rural areas. It is based on the idea of eco-tourism in order to preserve the nature and the environment for both tourists and the local people. It is an example project that helps the environment and the public.
