An increasingly popular tourist destination, from lush jungles, delicious food and pristine beaches, Thailand has it all. Ride a tuk tuk through Bangkok’s bustling streets, see the Thai rice paddies or visit the hill tribes in the North. Thailand is highly reliant on the tourism industry, with 9.3% of the GDP coming from it. So, choosing travel experiences that keep money in local hands is crucial. Tour the Doi Inthanon National Park to see rescue elephants or take a Thai cooking class in a local village.
