Chi Pat is a special tourism project. The Community Center is helping the people to learn how to work with tourists and how to have common advantage from this. All the services you will be buying ( trekking, short cruises on the river, kayaking, bike riding etc. ) will be paid at the community center that will support all the members of the community. So you are sure that all the workers will be fairly rewarded. The place is beaitiful, trekkings solutions, you can also simply wander by bycicle and swimm in the river. We had the night cruise and it was very charming!
If you are looking for something different and a realness go to Chi Phat for the countryside experience. A must! The Visitor Center has nice food and wifi. Lovely staff to help you organize a tour and your stay.
The community and the basis behind it are an incredible idea of a wildlife protect organisation, a community and a way of life that they make work together to the sustainable benefit of all involved. It is an amazing place to visit and a part of the world where people care about each other instead of position, family over finance and are so warm and welcoming you feel at home soon after arriving.
