Blaming the stalled economy and the Covid-19 virus’ effects on international tourism, operator Nusasiri Group Plc said on Thursday (February 27) that all staff of the landmark attraction would be laid off.
But it held out hope that the park, where performers in period costume present scenes from Thai history and literature on flamboyantly lit and decorated stages, could reopen someday if conditions improve sufficiently. If so, it said, the staff would be rehired.
Foreign tourists had cancelled more trips to Thailand than expected, hurting Chonburi in particular, it said.
