Thailand is a jewel of Asia. With its many beaches and forests, towns and temples, Thailand is an all time favourite for tourists around the world.
Thailand’s nature is a main draw for visitors. Trekking in the mountains and forests is a main activity especially in the mountainous north, while beaches are well known in the east and south.
Given these great natural advantages, it might seem surprising that orienteering is still nascent in Thailand as of the late 2010s. But the sport is growing fast—the Thai Orienteering Federation was admitted as a member of the International Orienteering Federation in January 2019.
Over New Year 2020 Thailand will be hosting a three-day Thailand International Orienteering Championship in Chiang Mai. Come experience the forest sport in Thailand’s northern city!
