Thailand has been attracting a wide swath of tourist since the late 1960s. Some come for the excitement of Bangkok or the beautiful resort beaches of the south. But increasingly, many come to the Land of Smiles for the opportunities for ecotourism. A diverse offering of habitats and a vast array of wildlife has made Thailand a popular destination for travelers looking for a chance to experience the few remaining relatively untouched ecosystems in the world. The biggest question tourist may have to decide is where in Thailand to go. Some of the best opportunities to experience the wonders of nature lie in northern Thailand.
The areas west and north of Chang Mai contain some of the most pristine jungles in Indochina. There are 18 national parks in northern Thailand. Chief among the attractions offered is the quickly vanishing monsoon forest with it vast array of endangered fauna and unique flora, especially its wild orchids. Towns like Mae Hong Son and Pai have become popular jumping off spots for mountain trekking and bamboo river rafting in the Umphang district. The limited number of roads in the area has helped preserve it natural splendor. Many companies offer sustainable accommodations in the surrounding mountains and valleys. A number of the agencies offering eco-adventures offer overnight stays or longer in the homes of the indigenous hill tribes who populate the mountains of the area.
