This handbook provides information about 20 of Thailand’s leading CBT communities. Beyond that, it also provides simple guidelines for responsible tour operators on ‘how to work together effectively with local communities’ so that CBT can succeed. The CBT-I team hope that this is a useful resource for both product and partnership development. This book is full of creative, fun, living, learning experiences, based on very special aspects of life, culture and nature which local people have chosen to share with guests. Community members manage and operate these programs. They choose how they wish to be presented. They feel proud to share their lives with guests.
