This report assesses the tourism industry in Laem Khruat, a rural village in the Krabi Province of Thailand that was affected by the 2004 tsunami. We investigated methods of incorporating the principles of ecotourism into the village's tourism practices. We concentrated on three issues affecting the village: waste disposal, tourism marketing, and water based tourism transportation. We concluded that an expanded garbage bank program, new brochures and a website are necessary for further ecotourism development. We also concluded that a kayak with a Mirage drive pedal system is effective for ecotourism.
