Together with government bodies, private sector, and residents of Prachuap Khiri Khan province, we’re championing healthy living while conserving our precious planet, such as transportation services within the event and nearby areas using electric vehicles, ensuring souvenirs are made from 100% recycled materials, managing wastes within the event, and collecting travel data of participants to calculate the carbon credits that the bank must offset.

As of this year, we are introducing everyone to a new experience on a new route, managed by a highly experienced organization, Summit Nich Company, leveraging their strong local partnerships, to address important sustainability- related and environmental concerns for a better quality of life.
