Cycling enthusiasts launch Ranong as a southern tourism alternative

by Prasert Thepsri

The Government has been keen to start boosting tourism outside the country’s hot-spots – the so-called ‘2nd tier tourist zones. So the neighbouring provinces of Phuket are now actively promoting their attractions to draw tourists heading to the southern island as a side-trip.

Yesterday, hundreds of cycling enthusiasts joined a 38 kilometre bicycle ride which aimed to promote tourism in Ranong’s Muang district, a five hour drive north of Phuket.

The “Slow Life, Amazing Thailand, Go Local @Ranong” ride began from the front of the Ranong Municipal Offices. The ride passed through interesting sites such as a hot spring, and a mangrove forest research centre before circling back to the municipal office.

The participants also got a chance to play games learning more about the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Six donated computers were handed over to Ban Tha Chang School’s digital lab.

The trip was organised by Mitsubishi Electric Kang Yong Watana,JP Insurance, NationTV 22 and the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
