THERE Â are five best Eco-Tourism sites in the Asia-enjoyed by both backpackers and jet-setters, alike.
Originally dubbed as Sariska Tiger Reserve in 1894 to preserve the lovely Bengal tigers, the Rajasutan India Reservation Â site can be visited atop camels -and aside from animals- can Â also be viewed are many ruins, temples and enjoyable sulphuric spa springs. On the other hand, the Tamana Nagara in Malaysia is a premier 4,000 hectare site of forests and mountains-where water springs, rare mammals and jungle night safaris are popular.
Reminding one of Â our ownAbatan River, is Mekong River,probably one of the world’s longest that traverses through the mountains of Laos to the heartlands of Cambodia and Thailand -whose river banks have different eco-tourism Â attractions. Rare animals including a vanishing dolphin specie are a sight to behold. In Indonesia is the Wa Kumbas National Park where elephant safari tours are popular used for bird watching -finding rare elephants, tigers and rhinoceros.
Fortunately, one candidate from the Philippines has been named- Donsol in Â the province of Â Sorsogon-the so-called “White Shark Capital of the World” where aside from white sharks,manta rays are in abundance.
The Philippines, with over 7,000 islands and being a paragon of biodiversity can still develop many untapped potential eco-tourism sites. If you have one in mind, write to your Tourism officials.
