Thailand was closed for tourists Similan Islands
Similan Islands, the territory which is the eponymous national park of Thailand, closed to the public from 16 May to mid-October. These six months will need a nature reserve to recover from the damage caused by tourists.
Once again allow tourists to visit the Similan Islands, one of the islands will remain closed indefinitely. The Department of National Parks in Thailand believe that beautiful island Tachai (Koh Tachai) must be saved from the tourist crowds. Because of the spectacular species Tachai has become too popular. The beach of the island is able to accept only 70 people, but there were days when it was going up to thousands of travelers. Authorities seek to preserve the island as a natural area, not a tourist attraction, according to “the Thai News.”
The beach of the island was crowded with food carts, food stalls and tourist boats. “The island is contaminated quickly if we close it now, we will lose it forever.” – Said the head of the Department of National Parks.
