The wildlife sanctuary is located in Ban Khlong Sai Village in Wang Nam Kiew district, a less than four hours drive from Bangkok.
“We expect that during weekends more tourists would visit the sanctuary, which would generate revenue of more than Bt10 million,” said Phongthep. “Several hotels and merchants here are participating in the government’s “Kon La Khreung” (Let's Go Halves) campaign, so please visit us to witness nature’s beauty and enjoy discounted products and services,” Phongthep said.
