For over a year, the campaign has raised more than 600,000 Baht and over 100,000 big trees have been preserved. The Meaningful Travel campaign is a way to amplify the intentions of the future of travel for Thailand – a direct way for tourists to make socially conscious choices and to support lifestyle brands that are accountable for the well being of our nature and strengthen Thailand’s local communities. Travelers can book hotels, restaurants, spa and experiences in Thailand through this platform and help create a positive impact to the environment. Half of what travelers spend will fund Big Trees Foundation to make their holidays even more special.
