5 Ways to Travel Responsibly in Thailand

How can I be more responsible on the go? It’s a question that has a unique set of answers depending on where you are traveling. Each country is confronted with social, economic and environmental problems, which ultimately are the answer. After living and traveling throughout Thailand for 5 years, I have realized some issues related to this country. Here are 5 easy and reliable travel tips for Thailand.

Can not speak with a plastic bag.

If you have been to Thailand, you will know about the love of plastic bags. Everything seems to come in plastic bags. Sometimes you get a bag in a bag. It is surprising when you get a bottle of Coca-Cola that is poured into a plastic bag with a little ice to give the seller a refund.

It’s easy to break the habit. Just say no plastic bag. You may have been staring at the confused few questions as to why you do not need a purse. In some cases, it does not even indicate that you still have a plastic bag. Take it and deny you even a plastic bag hand is not vulgar.

One important line that you can learn in Thai, which makes a huge difference is “mai sai tung krub”. “No Thanks Bag”

Clean the dog as you go.

Where are these billions of plastic bags going to end? In the sea and on the beach The amount of junk that ended up in a beautiful remote beach in Thailand did not surprise me. In fact, the more distant you are, the more you will get more waste.

Making a difference is really easy. Just hold the garbage bag roll in your backpack. If you come to a desolate beach, take only one hour to clean and you will make a huge difference. More often than not, you get other people involved in helping you.

Not only will you feel good about helping to solve environmental problems. But you will have beautiful beaches for yourself.

Pay the entrance fee to the national park.

Many travelers complained about the price split in the National Park of Thailand. There is a price for locals and a separate price for foreigners, which is generally ten times the local.

Consider for minutes that this money is actually spent for conservation. All entrance fees will be included with the National Park entrance pass. The staff is responsible for fundraising, so it is not a cash for whiskey bottles later in the afternoon. The Thai government has a real conservation effort on the national park, with these funds, such as reforestation and illegal removal of buildings.

Want to support conservation in Thailand? Pay a fee to enter your national park. Be sure to check out a few great national public investigations in one of Thailand’s biggest travel guides, The Lost Passport.

Buy at MA & PA

7/11 Convenience Store owned and operated by CP Group. In recent times, it has been felt that 7/11 has attracted attention throughout Bangkok and other parts of Thailand.

why? Everybody buys it because the baht is less.

7/11 stores have effectively pushed a large number of domestic-owned stores out of business. Small shops with families work for generations, and usually 60 or older seniors in Bangkok. We usually call the Ma & Pa store.

When you spend just a few dollars on the dollar, you can get them to work and work hard.

Avoid animal tourism.

Animal tourism is of interest in Thailand and Southeast Asian countries. In recent times, travelers have become increasingly aware of the cruelty associated with the animal tourism industry.

The elephants were “spoiled” over the years, until they heard their masters. The tigers are drugged so they can be safely patted by the crowd of tourists. The monkeys are kept in small cages, chained to the ground, and have a sword to do tricks for the crowd.

If you want to see animals in Thailand, go to the national park where you will see natural habitats (from a distance) or visit the sacred places where animals are helped by the abuse in the tourism industry.
