BANGKOK, 30 May 2017: One of the ways to experience genuine Thainess is to learn from the Royal Projects, which were initiated by the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, during his 70-year reign.

Tourism Authority of Thailand promotes the country’s Royal Projects many of which are located in secondary destinations in provinces that have yet to realise their full tourism potential. The projects support communities and rural economies to offer a wider range of products than just rice cultivation.

Royal Project tourism is a by-product driven mainly by their success at introducing alternative crops and cool-climate fruit cultivation on the highlands of North Thailand. First domestic tourists visited the projects enthralled by the Late King’s dedication and untiring efforts to improve the lives of rural people.  International tourists followed in recent years providing an additional income for the projects that supports research and community improvements.
