Overall, from Tha Sala to Sichon in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province, these areas are significant due to their historical importance, natural beauty, economic potential, and the opportunity for cultural exchange.
The School of Informatics, in collaboration with the Digital Content and Media program at Walailak University, recognizes the importance of the Thasala-Sichon tourism route and aims to play a role in promoting this route economically and culturally. The School of Information Science will:
Conduct research and develop an online information system to identify key economic and cultural sites along this route.
Promote and market this tourism route by collaborating with local tourism agencies to develop marketing campaigns and work with local communities to promote community-based products.
Disseminate sustainable tourism practices and educate tourists on eco-tourism, encouraging local businesses to adopt environmentally friendly practices.
The School of Informatics hopes that this project will benefit the local communities in the area and serve as a model for similar projects in Nakhon Si Thammarat Province and other regions of Thailand. This, in turn, will contribute to the growth of economic and cultural tourism while preserving the cultural heritage of the nation for future generations.”
