Green is the new black… More and more people are seeking (sustainable) fun under the sun, so here are some of Thailand’s best green locations to choose from – green in more ways than one!
Ko Phaluai, Surat Thani.
One of the larger islands in Ang Thong Archipelago, Ko Phaluai is a model of green lifestyle with locals switching to renewable energy sources including wind turbines and solar panels to help lower their carbon footprint.
Ko Mak, Trat
Known for being a green island resort, Ko Mak is a place visitors can explore sustainably with low impact activities including biking, kayaking, and sailing. Solar farms are a norm on this island.
Bang Kachao, Samut Prakarn
A huge green lung of Bangkok, Bang Krachao is dense with trees and a laidback lifestyle despite it being a stone’s throw from Bangkok.
Khao Yai National Park, Nakhon Ratchasima
A massive area of a lush rainforest that has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage, Khao Yai National Park encompasses four provinces of Thailand’s central and northeast regions and it is home to a biodiverse range of flora and fauna, from elephants, wild deer and gibbons to hornbills and colourful kingfishers.
