Six destinations from across Japan and two from Thailand have been included in the sixth edition of the Sustainable Top 100 Destinations list, which was unveiled at the first-ever online Global Green Destinations Days (GGDD) in early October.
Destinations featured on the list from Japan include Kamaishi, Kyoto city, Miura Peninsula, Niseko Town, Okinawa prefecture, and Shirakawa village, and from Thailand includes Chiang Khan and Nan Old City.
The Sustainable Top 100 Destinations competition is organised to showcase sustainable tourism stories and good practices of destinations, as inspiring examples to others, to tour operators, and to travellers. By publishing this annual list and by sharing their destination management good practices and success stories, the initiators acknowledge the steps taken towards making tourism destinations more sustainable, responsible and more attractive from a visitor experience point of view.
The 2020 Top 100 destinations will be listed on the Green Destinations website and have been invited to be featured in the Good Travel Guide, enabling them to tell their sustainability stories to interested travellers.
