The first tourists since travel restrictions were relaxed returned to Phitsanulok’s Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park for camping excursions.
Closed for two months, Phu Hin Rong Kla reopened to visitors on Sept. 16 with some entry requirements and social distancing measures reinforced.
Last weekend, visitors, mostly families, returned to camp in the national park to enjoy nature and the cool seasonal breezes, between 17-20 degrees Celsius.
The park currently requires all visitors to have received a least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. Visitors must make an entry reservation on the Que-Q application in advance, and must wear a mask at all times within the park’s vicinity.
Campers are required to place their tents 10 meters away from others, as part of the social distancing measures.
Phitsanulok Province is home to some other tourism attractions such as the morning sea of fog at Ban Nam Juang in Chat Trakan District. The temperature now in the morning is around 18 degrees.
Visitors to the area can observe the local livelihood of Hmong people, including their picturesque terraced fields, as well as visit a reservoir and a beautiful waterfall. These areas, which still remain closed for tourists, are expected to reopen on Oct. 1.
