Tourism and agriculture
The project is a combination of Thai local activities, and new tourism activities. This in order to attract all kinds of people, such as millennials, families and couples. Due to the educating nature of the activities, children can play and learn, and adults can have fun with it too, according to the Tourism Authority Thailand’s Governor, Mr. Yuthasak, Supasorn. Furthermore, all children participating will receive a specially designed eco-friendly prize. Also, the event lays down a basis for value for agricultural products.
Children from 4-10 can also go to the playground, while the bigger kids can go to the Farm Pavilion.
