Guests have an opportunity to experience and learn about the community and the environment through fun, “hands-on” activities lead by local community guides. These include jungle trekking, traditional fishing, natural dying, learning to cook local dishes, etc. Tourism services and activities are planned and managed by local people, working together in a “CBT Group.” Tourism programs are especially designed to support community and environmental projects, to build local skills, and to distribute opportunities fairly. Guests experience and learn about rural Thai people, their lives, cultures, and inter-relationships with the natural world. It is hoped that this will increase respect for local cultures and the environment among hosts and guests.
