The Overview

A small, award-winning outfit, this group offers eco tours, cultural trips and volunteer placements in Southern Thailand. Andaman Discoveries is a tourist agency–cum–aid group whose main concern, says Eric Rogers, a longtime volunteer, is mass tourism. “What we can do is show the local people that their lifestyles, culture and environment are worth preserving,’’ he says. The group offers homestays with villagers, informed explorations of pristine coral reefs, beaches and mangroves, and volunteer opportunities, while trying to educate local people. Twenty percent of the group’s proceeds go into community projects.
