Visit TAT website for latest on Thailand’s national parks


The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) updated its website on the operation of national parks nationwide on Friday. Many parks have reopened, though some partially, while several remain closed either due to Covid-19 measures or because of the rainy season.

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) has reopened 96 of its 155 national parks nationwide since Wednesday. Visitors are recommended to keep a frequent watch on the list regularly updated by the National Park’s Office via this link, or its Facebook page: National Parks of Thailand.
