The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment has declared the planned reopening of 127 national parks throughout Thailand from 1 July, following the temporary closure of 25 March as part of the nationwide campaign to prevent the transmission of the Coronavirus Virus 2019 (COVID-19).

A total of 64 national parks will be completely restored from 1 July, with a further 63 partly reopening.

The reopening will be subject to strict COVID-19 control measures including advance bookings to limit the number of visitors to reduce overcrowding, and the use of the Thai Chana online platform for check-ins and check-outs. Across both parks social isolation must be applied.

Khao Yai National Park (capped at 5,000 visitors); Chae Son National Park (capped at 900 visitors); Mu Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park (capped at 400 visitors); Mu Ko Chumphon National Park (capped at 300 visitors); and Kui Buri National Park (capped at 200 visitors) are among the 64 parks that will be completely accessible. The Mu Ko Chang National Park, Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, Than Sadet-Ko Phangan National Park and Ao Phang Nga National Park are also to be officially accessible.
