Thailand’s eco-friendly hotels leave lasting impressions on their visitors due to their unique designs. From hotels floating on the river in Bangkok to those that are nestled on a tropical island, these accommodations focus on being as green as the scenic views around them. Some hotels even offer glamping in the form of tent-like rooms. Others, however, feature outside beds for a true, natural experience. As many of these green hotels’ prices are all-inclusive, guests can take advantage of other eco-friendly activities like visiting elephant sanctuaries.
