Agro-tourism promotion campaign

The Agriculture Promotion Department (APD) is planning to set up agro-tourism sites in 55 more provinces around Thailand to attract more local and foreign tourists, the Thai-language daily Thai Rath reported yesterday (Dec 3, 2018).

The newly selected agro-tourism sites will be located around major tourism sites that are already well-known to tourists. They will display an A symbol given by the APD.

Members of local communities will be selected to run these new sites based on their knowledge of agriculture and the ability to communicate with visitors.
