To create a dynamic network that promotes sustainable tourism practices in Thailand and ASEAN countries through collaboration and partnership among all sectors both locally and globally.
Thai Ecotourism and Adventure Travel Association (TEATA) was founded in 1997, with the aim of creating a network of like-minded tour operators and setting a high standard of nature, adventure, and eco-tourism. Since its establishment, TEATA has focused on building rapport, collaborating with professionals, and creating genuine partnerships across both the private and the public sector. These focuses have enabled TEATA to work towards achieving the long-term goal of sustainable tourism in Thailand. For the last two decades, TEATA has proven that it has been, and will continue to be, a unique & effective network that is concerned with benefiting both its members and the community alike.
The uniqueness of TEATA ultimately reflects the distinguished and individualistic qualities of its 60 members. Our network is comprised of tour operators, eco-lodge owners and green hoteliers; most of whom are either pioneers, specialists or ranked in the top tier in the fields in which operate. Their specializations range from biking, bird watching and community-based tourism to vertical adventure, jungle trekking and culinary tours!
