Do something wild. Do something wonderful.

Chinese tourists prefer green hotel options?!

This article seems a bit odd. You? What do you think? Apparently, Agoda.com (Asia’s Priceline web site) did a survey and discovered that 79% of Chinese respondents preferred eco-friendly hotel options and many were even willing to pay an additional cost. China appears to have less environmental awareness than many countries; so, are these findings legitimate?

Fishing and Ecotourism?

Can fishing and ecotourism be combined? Here are a couple of interesting websites: Apparently the Costa sunglass company has partnered with a tour company to bring sport fishermen to Guyana where they can flyfish for one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, the arapaima.
