Individual Project :

Manoj Patapohn and Olivier Evrard, together with several students of Chiang Mai University, have continued to conduct research on trekking tourism in several ethnic villages north of Chiang Mai. The fieldwork has focused on the organization of the trekking industry at the district level and on its economic impact. Special attention has been given to the rise, development and/or collapse of tourist destinations, and a Master’s dissertation is in preparation on this subject by one of the students of the team, Ms Karnrawee Stratongno.
