The Covid outbreak is set zero in the Thai tourism sector. How long this recovery will be sustained and how much volatility can be accommodated depends on the choice of pathway to get out of this crisis.

Thai shouldReposition a new tourism sector under 2 principles, namely (1) “Value over volume” approach and (2) Diversification approach, starting from building on activities that Thailand has the potential to compete in the past. Along with creating new activities that are expected to increase demand

In the future , the tourism sector should focus on expanding the group./Frequency of both Thai and foreign tourists in the region to be more diversified in 3 groups: health tourism Tourism that can experience the life of local people and work-related tourism to generate stable income and more balanced distribution

An important helper to help change is the unity of government agencies and policy driving mechanisms. Infrastructure for both transportation and tourism platforms and measures to support business adaptation, such as funding, regulatory adjustments, and up-skilled workers.

​Since the beginning of last year, the Thai tourism sector has been severely affected by COVID-19. by analysts This year, Thailand may have less than 500,000 foreign tourists (from nearly 40 million in 2019.that generates approximately2 trillion baht or 11% of GDP) looking forward The COVID outbreak will not only have a short-term impact. but will change the behavior of tourists around the world Increased emphasis on health and hygiene It’s a safe trip avoiding the crowds. travel closer prefer to travel with niche travel more than the traditional mass travel and focus on using technology to increase comfort throughout the journey The main problem of the country is when the tourism sector will recover. We still have to take this opportunity. Review and restructure the tourism sector in order to return to growth and drive the Thai economy sustainably in the post-Covid world.

Interesting issues from the seminar “Fah Lang Fon, a New Dimension for Thai Tourism” 1 jointly held by the Bank of Thailand and Visa International (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in June 2021, has presented the article Revitalizing Thailand’s tourism sector: In search of enablers for future sustainability point to the problem that traditional tourism models in Thailand could increase the vulnerability and volatility of the tourism sector in the post-COVID world. both from generating income through excessive dependence on the number of foreign tourists while tourists spend less There is also a problem of concentration in both the nationality of tourists. Old tourist attractions and travel periods, the article presents a new tourism model underTwo principles are (1) “Value over volume” approach and (2) Diversification approach to increase the spending value of foreign tourists. If it can be increased from 48,000 baht per person to 60,000 baht, it will allow Thailand to receive the same income but with only 32 million tourists, as well as to increase the balance in the tourism sector in various dimensions, such as distribution of sources of income. to rely on a more diverse tourist market to stabilize tourism income and help mitigate future risks as well as increase the distribution of income through supporting tourism in secondary cities more And most importantly, tourism must not create as much environmental costs as in the past.

In addition, the tourism sector restructuring to this new model It will create more investments in the tourism sector, such as digital investments to support the Contactless trend and tourism platforms. improvement of tourist attractions and investment in the transportation system From the present, Thailand invests only 13% of tourism revenue. Compared with other competitor countries such as the Philippines and Malaysia, which accounted for 21% and 27% respectively, and will result in the allocation of production resources. Both capital goods, machinery and labor go where they will get the best results and will contribute to increasing productivity. In this regard, the tourism sector has been transformed to be more dependent on capital factors. With the tourism sector reliant on natural resources and large labourers (more than 7 million people, accounting for 20% of total employment), during the transition some workers needed to adapt their skills to new trends. While surplus workers need to be cared for, they can transition to other service sectors that may become more popular in the future, such as Hospitality and wellness related services.

Thailand should reposition the tourism sector by focusing on tourism groups that are expected to have increased demand This starts by expanding on activities that Thailand has the potential to compete in the past (Old legacy), such as nature or culture. along with creating new activities such as health tourism Tourism to experience local life that adds value and incentives. along with the expansion of the group / frequency of tourism of Both Thai and foreign tourists in the region (Regional travelers) such as Japan, Taiwan, due to the trend of behavioral changes in tourists choosing to travel more near distances, especially tourists who prefer to travel on their own.(Free Independent Travelers: FIT) or Customized tour group , which will spend about 51,000 baht per trip per person, higher than the tour group at about 39,000 baht and focusing on supporting 3 main groups of tourists:

(1) Medical & wellness tourism group that will be more popular which is a group that has a cost per trip up to about 80,000-120,000 baht and create added value to the Thai economy more than 80% of the income received

(2) Green & community-based tourism group , ท่องเที่ยว which will stimulate tourism in secondary cities and reduce over-tourism. Moreover, income from tourists in this group also creates added value to the economy about 60-80% of the income received. as well

(3) Business groups such as investors and professional staffs who come to work in Thailand Or come to organize seminars in Thailand, including work from anywhere groups and followers, which are potential groups that spend high because they tend to stay for a long time (Expenses per trip for long-stay groups, accommodation for more than 14 days ≈ 75,000 baht) and tend to increase in accordance with the policy of attracting foreign investment and personnel to work in Thailand.

This is because the Thai tourism sector has various related businesses. The key point in driving the restructuring is centralized and interconnected policies. This requires cooperation from all parties in the ecosystem.

• The labor sector must increase skills or adjust their aptitudes in accordance with new trends. Meanwhile, the business sector has to speed up adjustments to places, routes, and tourism activities, including accommodation, to increase the attractiveness of secondary cities and the low season. To attract a variety of tourists and spend higher

• The government sector has clearly defined development directions, goals and plans. This is set out in the 13th National Economic and Social Development Plan and to achieve practical results. The government must (1) have a united driving agency. so that policies in all dimensions are consistent and can be implemented in a timely manner; (2) create a mechanism for driving a clear strategic plan Incentive policies, such as visitation or other prices and quotas, may be considered to restructure the tourism sector to meet more spatial and time-bound goals, as many countries such as the United States set. Entry to national parks during the peak season is twice as high as normal, and the Philippines imposes a quota of 6,405 daily visitors to Boracay island (3).both the transportation system to connect the secondary cities and use technology to make tourism more Contactless and Seamless, especially upgrading the tourism platform to serve as a marketing channel to attract target tourists with a Track & Trace system to build confidence for tourists. including being a comprehensive and fast tourism sector database for the benefit of both business and policy makers; and (4) supporting the adjustment of business and labor sectors in accordance with new tourism trends. or if businesses or workers need to leave the tourism sector There must be a mechanism to facilitate adaptation to a sector that can continue to expand. to take care not to waste too many resources both financial supportdifferent rules adjustmentand Up-skilled Reskilled Labor, etc.

• People play an important role in maintaining tourist attractions to be complete and attractive. and help create a good tourism atmosphere for visitors

The Covid outbreak is set zero in the Thai tourism sector. How long will the recovery be sustained in the next phase? It depends on choosing the path to get out of this crisis. The new path, although not easy, is necessary. so that the Thai tourism sector can return to grow in the sky after the rain that is brighter than in the past

ecotourism It is a concept that has only recently emerged. There are also other English words that have the same meaning. The important ones are Nature Tourism, Biotourism, Green Tourism, etc. However, such tourism is all indicative of Sustainable tourism, which from the 1990 Globe Conference in Canada defines tourism. sustainable that “A development that can meet the needs of today’s tourists and local owners. with protection and preservation Preserving the opportunities of future generations as well The meaning of tourism includes the management of resources to meet socio-economic needs. and aesthetic beauty while being able to maintain cultural and ecological identity as well.” The important characteristics are as a tourism that operates within the limits of nature’s ability and must be aware of the participation of the population, community, customs and traditions towards the tourism process It must also accept that people of all segments receive equal economic benefits arising from tourism and must be guided under the wishes of the local people and communities in that tourism area. (Institute for Research in Science and the Environment of Thailand, 1996) for the definition of ecotourism. There have been many different people or organizations giving meanings and definitions. It is accepted to some extent and is always referred to. The important ones are as follows. 1996) for the definition of ecotourism.

The important ones are as follows. 1996) for the definition of ecotourism. There have been many different people or organizations giving meanings and definitions. It is accepted to some extent and is always referred to. The important ones are as follows:

Ceballos Lascurin (1991) may be the first to define ecotourism as “It’s tourism One of the themes involved traveling to natural sites. without causing interference or damage to nature but the objective is to appreciate, study and learn and enjoy the scenery, flora and fauna, and the cultural features that appear in those natural sites.”

Elizabeth Boo (1991) defines ecotourism as “Nature-based tourism is conducive to conservation due to the availability of funds for the protection of the area. Jobs are created for the community or locality. as well as providing education and create environmental awareness”

The Ecotourism Society (1991) defines ecotourism as “Journey to visit natural resources with the objective of learning about the culture and history with caution not to change or destroy the value of ecosystems and at the same time help create economic opportunities that result in the conservation of natural resources benefit the local people.”

Western (1993) shortened and compacted The Ecotourism Society’s definition of ecotourism. but has a more complete meaning. “Responsible travel to natural resources that preserve the environment. and make life better livelihood of local people.”

The Commonwealt Department of Tourism (1994) defines ecotourism as travel The nature that covers the subject matter of education understanding the natural environment and management to maintain sustainable ecosystems. The term nature, environment, also includes local customs and traditions. As for the term ecological sustainability, it means various benefits Return to local communities and conservation of natural resources

Seree Vejbutsakorn (1995) defines ecotourism as “Responsible Tourism natural and social environment This includes the culture of the local community. as well as ancient sites Antiquities available in local as well.”

From the definitions and definitions of ecotourism above. It can be concluded that ecotourism refers to a form of tourism that involves traveling to natural resources. and responsible cultural resources without causing Disruption or damage to natural resources and environment but with the sole purpose of appreciating, studying, learning and enjoying the sights, flora and fauna, and the cultural features present in that natural habitat. It also helps create opportunities economy that results in the conservation of natural resources And the environment is beneficial to the local community as well.

Basic concepts of ecotourism.

Surachet Chetthamas and Index Emphan (1995b); The Institute of Scientific and Technological Research of Thailand (1996) has discussed the concept. which is the basis or principle of ecotourism It can be summarized as follows:

1. It is tourism in natural attractions. (nature-based) including cultural sources and ท่องเที่ยว (click the following page) history

which is unique, endemic (identical or uniqe ) and valuable in that area or has a relatively low impact on the environment (no or low impact) and helps promote environmental conservation of tourist attractions to be sustainable forever

3. It is a tourism that has a learning process (learning) and education (education) about ecosystems. and the environment of Tourism attractions to increase knowledge, appreciation and valuable experience which will raise awareness and correct awareness of conservation. both to tourists local people as well as related operators

4. It is tourism that leads to income distribution. both at the local and national level taking into account participation of local communities (involvement of local commuity or people participation) in various service sectors to bring about local benefits over tourism that has been promoted since the past until the present, which is called conventional tourism, which is often A large group tourism (mass tourism) where most of the benefits tend to fall to the operator. or travel agency only

Elements of ecotourism

Index Emphan and Surachet Chetmas (1996) said that, in general, tourism planning, including ecotourism, involves four key elements as follows:

1. Natural resources tourism)

Ecotourism is concerned with the preserving nature of the first hand ecosystem and local culture. with a unique local Most eco-tourism sites therefore often appear in conservation areas such as national parks. Wildlife sanctuaries and historical parks, etc. The Institute of Scientific and Technological Research of Thailand (1996) mentions natural attractions. As a source that has a distinctive feature that attracts tourists (nature attractions) and cuts off from the outside world (solitude), which tourists will not. touch at home In addition, the definition of tourist resources that Refers to a tourist destination that is a destination. (destination) of tourism This means an area that accommodates tourists. A tourist area will have resources that are attractive to tourists. Those attractions may be the attraction of a particular type of tourist. But it may not be attractive to other types of tourists, so resource conditions are directly related to the tourism market. In addition to the attractiveness of resources In some areas there are also tourism-related activities, so attraction resources include the potential of tourists to engage in activities. by dividing the source Tourism is divided into three main categories: nature destination and cultural destination, which combines religious tourism. History and archeology (historical, archaeological and regions destination) and art, culture and traditional destinations (art, culture and traditional destinations)

Therefore, if we look at ecotourism as a service industry The above attractions can be classified as raw materials to support. travel and is a used raw material that will never run out or lost if it is controlled and prevented by systematic planning and lead to Act seriously and continually which will encourage tourism It is also beneficial for sustainable tourism without deterioration. and does not affect the ecosystem beyond the carrying capacity of the system.

2. Ecotourism

Thailand Development Research Institute (1997) states that conservation tourists can be classified into four categories:

Type 1, hard-core nature tourists, are tourists who emphasize the importance of research while Nature tourism

Category 2 Dedicated nature tourists are tourists who focus on visiting specific places. especially nature In order to get to know and understand the nature or local customs.

Type 3 Mainstream nature tourists. is a tourist who likes to go to strange places such as visiting the Amazon Basin, Rwanda Gorilla Park or other destinations. This is an initiative for special tourism programs.

Type 4, casual nature tourists are tourists who happen to have to see nature. Because it is part of the tourism program that they have chosen to in

addition, the Institute of Scientific and Technological Research of Thailand, 2539 said the nature of the eco-tourist that Must be a tourist with behavior suitable for the purpose of acquiring knowledge and experience to strengthen the consciousness in conservation of nature

3. Marketing

Marketing is an important part of influencing tourists to travel. by being a medium between tourists, entrepreneurs and tourist attractions in which marketing must be clearly understood ecotourism what does it look like by providing information and what to expect from tourism (expectation) properly to tourists To help tourists decide Is this form of tourism suitable for their interests and needs? and can accept the rules or rules of ecotourism?

Therefore, it can be seen that marketing is an important tool in selecting the type and quality of tourists. to promote qualitative tourism rather than quantitative tourism (quantitative tourism) which will be the way leading to sustainable tourism Most of the marketing promotion work is the duty of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (Indices Emphan and Surachet Chetamas, 1996).


Tourism services, including ecotourism need various facilities necessary to meet the needs of tourists while there are tourism activities But ecotourism requires services that focus on information. and services for tourists gain experience In-depth knowledge of the local nature and culture, such as nature interpretation services Involvement of local people in the service sector, including arranging accommodation in harmony with nature and local culture (ecolodge), being a trekking guide, etc.

Activities in line with ecotourism

Tourism activities in natural and cultural sites Considered to be diverse Some activities may have characteristics indicating that they are ecotourism While some activities can be stale or overlap which must consider the components Objectives of what and how to focus on performance, activities and services, eg recreational purposes. Study for knowledge, adventure, fun sports for entertainment. Experience the elements of a tourist attraction exchange and share experiences, etc.

Drchanee Emphan and Surachet Chetmas (1996) said that ecotourism activities must involve learning and gaining experience about nature. The Forest Research Center (1995) has divided activities related to ecotourism into 3 groups, which are both main activities. and supplementary activities, namely:

– ecotourism activities as the main

activity – tourism activities focusing on getting close to nature

– tourism activities that emphasize adventures and challenges with nature (adventurous recreational activities) as complementary activities

This must be an activity that is consistent and goes well with ecotourism activities, that is, activities performed in natural areas. There is a limit on the number of tourists per group per activity in order not to affect the natural environment.

1. Ecotourism activities These include hiking/trekking, nature education activities, nature photography activities. video tape recorder nature photography video taping and sound of nature audio taping animal/bird watching activity cave exploring/visiting study sky interpretation boating Boat sightseeing, canoeing/kayak/rowboating/sailboating, snorkeling or skiln diving and other activities Scuba

diving These include: relaxing, hiking, mountain biking, rock/mountain climbing, tent camping, etc. Hang glider activities, white water rafting, picnicking, waterfall visits/ exploring and wind surfing.
