Bang Krachao eyed as new tourist destination in Bangkok
Bangkok’s green lung, Bang Krachao, will be developed as a tourist attraction and given the SHA certification to ensure visitors’ safety, the Designated Areas for Sustainable Tourism Administration (Dasta) said.
Dasta director Group Capt Atikhun Kongmee said on Thursday that the objective of the decision was to generate revenue through eco-friendly tourism. This will also improve the quality of life for people in the area sustainably.
Apart from being given the SHA certification and other tourism-related awards, Bang Krachao will also be developed into a gastronomical paradise for gourmets.
Dasta is also releasing video clips to promote the area and build awareness via bloggers.
Bang Krachao earned 237,178 baht in revenue when Covid-19 restrictions were eased, and Dasta reckons more people will travel to the area when the situation returns to normal.
Since 2021, Dasta has been working on improving six communities, namely Song Khanong, Bang Yo, Bang Nam Phueng, Bang Kobua, Bang Krasop and Bang Krachao.
