One type of ecotourism is adventure tourism. Hard adventure tourism combines excitement and a degree of risk in an outdoor setting, frequently demanding physical exertion and skill. Soft adventure tourism involves only a minor element of risk, little physical exertion, and limited skills.
Birdwatching at National Parks:
Khao Yai National Park, Nakhon Ratchasima Province
Khao Yai National Park is the closest national park to Bangkok and probably the most popular birdwatching site in the country. It is home to many rare species of birds, most notably, all four species of hornbill; great, wreathed, oriental pied and brown. Birdwatchers can stroll along one of the forest walking trails or simply roam the open grasslands, catching constant glimpses of lively and colourful birds.
Cycling Tours in Thailand
Going on a tour by bicycle is probably one of the best ways to visit some of Thailand’s important sites. You can enjoy easy-going bicycle trips around the capital, Bangkok, or cycling in the Pai district of Mae Hong Son province – visit hilly environs, waterfalls, hot springs and ethnic tribes, like the Karen long-necked women. For a slower pace, you can cycle and explore a real Thai rural life and charm of the countryside at Ko Kret (Kret Island), or take a half-day cycling tour in Kanchanaburi province – cycle along village roads passing agricultural villages and community preservation forest to Hellfire Pass.
