Adventure tourism has become more popular in many parts of the world as travellers look for alternatives to city and beach life. However as numbers of activities and participants increased, safety standards often failed to keep up.
Concerned by this new safety standards for land tourism, adventure sport and zipline activities are being created.
The Ministry of Tourism and Sports and Faculty of Engineering at Kasetsart University have collaborated on the standards designed to minimise accidents and build trust among tourists and tourism business operators.
The standards are expected to be implemented shortly after the country reopens, initially in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chon Buri, Kanchanaburi, Phuket and Udon Thani.
