TAT would like to remind all of you that all national parks and forest parks in Thailand are currently temporarily closed to visitors from 25 March, 2020, until further notice, as part of the nationwide efforts to limit the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Once the situation improves and all unprecedented measures by the Royal Thai Government have been lifted, international and domestic tourists will certainly be able to experience the amazing nature of the Khao Laem Ya-Mu Ko Samet National Park as well as other national parks in Thailand again.
In the meantime, TAT would like to remind all of you to stay safe through this difficult time. Be reminded to practice social distancing and follow strict guidelines on personal hygiene. Keep healthy and get enough sleep. Together we shall get through this.
