In order to share its wonderful natural resources, the Forest Industry Organization created resorts in seven of its sustainable forest plantations. The economically priced accommodations are rustic but always very clean, comfortable and quiet — and often quite beautiful. All offer fine Thai food, both the world acclaimed Central Thai food and regional delicacies. Carefully chosen caretakers are always friendly, courteous and anxious to please.

A plantation vacation is perfect not only for people who want nothing but rest and quiet, but also for people who enjoy fine outdoor recreation ranging from hiking, bird watching, fishing, caving, to rafting and kayaking.

Many of our plantation resorts have facilities for camping and are thus suitable for large groups such as school holidays, sports events and company outings.

The Thai Elephant Conservation Center has its own Chang Thai Resort situated right next to Thung Kwian Plantation.
