Before taking any ecotourism opportunity in Pattaya, it would be helpful to examine what ecotourism is in Thailand and what …
The concept of ecotourism is a responsible journey to the intact or fragile and generally protected areas, which now seek to reduce the environmental impact of tourism.
t The point is that future generations will be able to experience these areas convincingly intact and without the different types of garbage our species will bring with it.
The International Society for Ecotourism (TIES), founded in 1990, defines ecotourism using seven basic criteria and suggests that travelers use the same criteria when booking an ecological tour:
- The tour travels to a natural destination, such as a theme park.
- The tour is organized to minimize the impact of the tour on the environment.
- The cruise directly or indirectly builds on environmental awareness.
- The travel company provides direct financial benefits for preserving nature and preserving the environment.
- The tour provides empowerment and financial benefits to people on or near the earth.
- Tour operators and customers respect the culture of the local environment.
- The tour supports democratic movements and human rights.
t In fact, there is not much that can be done, as there are no international laws or an enforceable restoration of ecotourism abuse. There is no easy way for tour operators to keep their business environmentally friendly or environmentally friendly, regardless of fairness and fair advertising.
In the case of De Pattaya (and generally Thailand), these labels are rarely misused. For example, there are two eco-tours in Pattaya. These are submarine and semi-submarine tours from the fragile coastal coral reefs of Ko Sak and Ko Lan. These tours are environmentally friendly, in the sense that the operators of these boats do not cautiously disturb corals or wildlife, and the impact on the environment is much smaller than if the same number of divers (as passengers) visit these reefs Sun.
The two recommended tour operators visit the following reefs:
Pirom submarine 311/7, Mu 10, Pattaya Tai Road. To get on board, La La Bali Hai Port is taken to the float station of Ko Sak. This section has a depth of draft exceeding 30 meters, where a fisheye can be seen from the coral reefs. Tickets are 2000 baht / adult and 1500 baht per child. The subpages start every hour, Saturday, Sunday and holidays. During the week, the schedule is 10:30, 11:20, and 13:00. For more information, call +66 (0) 38 415 234 or visit your website.
Pattaya Pakarang semi-submarine is the same as above, with a local administration office at Soi 4, Beach Road, North Pattaya. This tour leads to Ko Sak and underwater waters. Ko Lan reefs and tickets are 1800 baht for adults and 900 baht for kids. This tour includes lunch. For more information, call +66 (0) 38 411 001 in Pattaya or, if in Bangkok, call 02 503 3791.
