The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has reopened 60 of its 155 national parks nationwide from this month with more to come.

Thanya Netithammakul, DNP director-general, said the reopenings would help minimize the impact of the Covis-19 restrictions for local businesses and communities around the parks.

However, he stated that parks are allowed to reopen under the conditions that strict public health measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 infection are in place.

According to the DNP, below is the list of national parks that are open to visitors. This may change without prior notice, so travelers should revisit the list regularly updated by the National Park Office via this link, or its Facebook page: National Parks of Thailand.
