The results showed that the visitors have generally positive perceptions and attitudes toward the ecotourism resources conservation at TNKK even though the park was not well managed after devastating floods in 2014. Most of the visitors were addressed that TNKK management should improve the facilities and maintained the ecotourism resources.
