Wild Asia Assessment – Two Years in a Row!

Rebecca, who visited last August as part of the Wild Asia selection committee, was impressed at the amount of progress the village has made in its commitment to community-based tourism. “It’s great to come back to Ban Talae Nok, a year after my first visit. Everyone seems more confident than before. There are more activities and the sense of pride the villagers have in the tourism initiative and their role in it is tangible. You have a phenomenal leader in Pink. Her work with the youth group is awesome. I’m sure with her as a role model the little band of ‘eco-warriors’ she’s creating will be become effective community leaders.”
