ESCAP (2001) reviewed a case study on Khiriwonge Village located in the foothills of Thailand's southern mountain which demonstrated CBT successfully. The Khitiwonge Village Ecotourism Club was established after the village was destroyed by devastating flood to help the local communities to preserve their natural resources. Villagers were given empowerment to make decisions and planned for tourist's activities. They also educated tourists on the environment and actively organized tree planting and cultivation of crops as activities for tourists. It enables tourists to experience their agriculture lifestyle and understand more about bio-diversity protection. This is evident that there is a strong interaction between the tourists and the local villagers. Therefore, this shows that if the local communities cooperate and participate in the planning of sustaining the environment as well as protecting their natural resources, CBT can be a form of tourism revenue for the villagers.
