People shift from providing email addresses to using forms (for contact) in order to avoid spam

bots. But there are some new spam bots today which can detect email address even through forms

present on a website. Any solution to prevent this?

generally the form action is as follows

<form action="">

Any other way this can be written to prevent it from being detected by spam bots?

Yep, the form here on this forum sends email too, actually many of them, but there is no email address visible in the HTML. You should specify the email address in the program that send the email. It's very rare that form action would include an email address, except maybe some simple generic scripts provided by some hosting companies. You may want to look at CCS tutorial, which has an example of sending emails.
