Conference Objectives!

Tourism is a great revenue generator and it also bring a lot of social, economic, cultural benefits. In a few countries, tourism is the main driver of economic growth and socio-economic development. It is, indeed, a pleasant privilege to host this upcoming conference in the vibrant city of Bangkok, Thailand, which is considered to be one of the fabulous tourism destinations in the world.

Tourism creates a lot of job opportunities for the citizens and brings social, economic, cultural and other benefits. Of course, it is, indeed, very appropriate to hold a conference in the beautiful city of Bangkok, Thailand, which is one of the major tourist destinations for many nationalities.

Eco-tourism! An Emerging Paradigm!

Eco-tourism is now defined as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education" (TIES, 2015).

Principles of Eco-tourism

Eco-tourism is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement, participate in and market ecotourism activities should adopt the following ecotourism principles:

Minimize physical, social, behavioral, and psychological impacts, build environmental and cultural awareness and respect, provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts, provide direct financial benefits for conservation, generate financial benefits for both local people and private industry, deliver memorable interpretative experiences to visitors that help raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climates, design, construct and operate low-impact facilities, recognize the rights and spiritual beliefs of the Indigenous People in your community and work in partnership with them to create empowerment.
