Ms Chutima Wongvibulsin, assistant to the director of TCT, said that OSMEP had presented the project to the TCT committee last month, adding that the concept of “boutique camping” was adapted from Australian caravans. It will use natural parks with service areas under the DNP’s umbrella, excluding those with sensitive locations.

The project is targeting quality tourists, and has already started at Khao Khiao Natural Park with the signing of an agreement with Excite Resort. Meanwhile, a feasibility survey for the next step of this project is being carried out by TCT on Chang island in Trat province.

OSMEP’s general policy states it can financially support the SMEs with 25-30 percent of their total registered capital, in the form of a joint venture, and the support will be terminated after three to five years.
