Hello everyone! I am trying to make my World Studies topic about tourism. I was thinking about looking at Thailand (and possibly Laos if needed) and going into the aspects of sustainable tourism, and more specifically the benefits of ecotourism. I was either going to look into either the environmental/economic benefits or the social/cultural benefits of promoting ecotourism, however I just cannot come up with a research question.
Here are some I have come up with...
To what extent is ecotourism beneficial to developing countries (Laos and Thailand)?
To what extent is ecotourism needed for tourism to be sustainable in Thailand?
I also was thinking about doing a comparison of a place that already has eco/sustainable tourism, and showing how Thailand could incorporate the same strategy, and why it would be beneficial. For example: To what extent would Thailand adopting Tiger Leaping Gorge's tourism strategy be beneficial via sustainability?
Really all I need help with is coming up with a research question revolving around this topic. Any help or insight would be taken to heart and much appreciated! 😀
