Destination Asia unveils new sustainable fishing village tour
Get a local touch of Koh Samui by visiting a traditional fishing village and gain a glimpse of their daily life and community initiatives focusing on a more sustainable future for the fisherman. Start by visiting a local organic garden and restaurant for lunch before walking around a local fresh market. Guests will discover how the locals live away from the main tourist areas and will also have a chance to release thousands of baby blue crabs back into the sea to ensure their species continue to live along the Thai coasts for generations to come.
