BANGKOK(NNT) - Starting July 1st this year, 127 national parks in Thailand will reopen to visitors under new normal conditions. Tourists, who plan to visit national parks, have to make a reservation in advance via the QueQ mobile application to help prevent congestion.
The QueQ app can be downloaded on both Android and iOS devices. Before entering and leaving the national parks, visitors are also required to check in and out, on the government’s Thai Chana online platform. On June 25, different systems, including QueQ and Thai Chana, will be tested in Khao Yai National Park. The health screening checkpoint will also be put to the test.
Tourists, who have not made an advance reservation via QueQ, can still visit national parks, but officials will allow people who have made an advance reservation, to enter first. If people miss their check-in time, officials will allow walk-in tourists to enter before them.
The national parks are aware of the importance of observing social distancing protocols to help limit the spread of COVID-19. The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation is using different media channels to provide information about tourism in national parks. People can visit the Facebook page of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation and the National Park Office for updates and other information.
