ASEAN Workshop

Last week I was lucky enough to attend a workshop run by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports that focused on ecotourism within the ASEAN community.

Along with other delegates representing six countries I visited three locations to see different approaches to ecotourism. They were Ban Jum Rung in Rayong province – the community usually considered to be the best at practising the King’s Sufficiency Economy philosophy; Huai Raeng in Trat – a village that accepts visitors in cultural exchange and knowledge sharing programs, placing high importance on conserving their natural environment and their traditions; and FaaSai Resort & Spa in Chantaburi – an eco-resort that values its guests as members of their ever-changing community and prides itself on its environmentally-friendly grounds and functioning farm.

Whilst the three initiatives had their own lessons to offer there was one message that came across loud and clear from all of them: if you wish to be happy and successful in what you do, you can achieve so much more by working as a community sharing a common vision.
