THAI­LAND’S Depart­ment of Na­tional Parks, Wildlife and Plant Con­ser­va­tion has con­firmed a four-month ban on visi­tors to Maya Bay so that the site can re­gen­er­ate from over­tourism ( TD 04 Apr).

The bay, lo­cated in Hat Nop­pharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi Na­tional Park, will be closed to tourists from 01 Jun to 30 Sep.

The rest pe­riod will see a ma­rine eval­u­a­tion study con­ducted.

The move fol­lows a sim­i­lar de­ci­sion made by the Philip­pine Gov­ern­ment re­cently which opted to close the pop­u­lar tourist is­land of Bo­ra­cay for six months from last month ( TD 11 Apr).
