Hoteliers in Thailand are opening rural resorts to boost domestic and international holiday tourism
During my recent visit to Thailand, while undertaking the sightseeing tour of Ayutthaya, I took a short break at a rural resort for enjoying snacks and soft drinks. I was impressed by the ambience and layout of the place with rustic and rural outlook.

I was told that it was one of the new aspects of holiday tourism which is to live leisurely in countryside resorts by connecting with nature to spend holidays and relax.

Of late, the tourism industry had been selling the idea of rural resorts with sprawling lawns, huts like comfortable rooms, babbling creeks, rustic barns, hay stacks and ponds with ducks.

Though the rooms looked hut-like from outside but were decorated with folk art, craft, and antiques with modern furnishing inside. The rustic elegance is coupled with the convenience of modern amenities in rural resorts.

Outside the room, the resort premises had gardens, bridges, tree-houses, and children's play park, games courts, trampoline, biking trails, waterfalls, reclining chairs, rocking chairs, fire pits, shallow pool, etc.

In some rural resorts, there are restaurants that serve up farm-to-table food items. Some of them even allow you to cook your own food from the produce of the attached organic farm.

In India too, rural resorts have come up. There are a few on the outskirts of Jaipur in Rajasthan but not very popular yet. To make such resorts popular, marketing the concept of rural resorts for holidaying is required to done in a big manner.
