Four Thai towns recognized among 100 destinations worldwide for “good practice stories”


Four towns in Thailand, including Hua Hin (in Prachuap Khiri Khan), Mueang Kao Sukhothai, Khlong Thom (in Krabi), and Nan Old City, have been listed in the “2023 Green Destination Top 100 Stories” for showcasing exemplary destination management practices toward responsible future tourism.

The 2023 Green Destination Top 100 Stories, organized by the Green Destinations Organization, cover six categories comprising Destination Management, Nature and Scenery, Environment and Climate, Culture and Tradition, Thriving Communities, and Business and Marketing.

The stories of Khlong Thom, Nan Old City, and Hua Hin were listed in the Environment and Climate category, while the story of Mueang Kao Sukhothai was listed in the Nature and Scenery category.

In the 2022 edition, good practice stories of Thai towns, including Huai Pu Keng in Mae Hong Son, Ko Mak in Trat, and Sapphaya in Chai Nat, were also recognized by Green Destinations.

The 2023 Green Destinations Top 100 Stories list was announced during the Green Destinations 2023 Conference in Estonia earlier this month, with more than 250 delegates from over 40 countries discussing sustainable tourism solutions.
