The eastern Rayong province’s Koh Samet will reopen to the public on July 1, after being closed since the enactment of the Emergency Decree to halt the spread of Covid-19.

The reopening follows with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment’s policy to reopen all national parks nationwide. Koh Samet is a part of the Khao Laemya – Koh Samet National Park.

Thailand’s superintendent of national parks had earlier said that national and local park officials had started cleaning the island, as well as its ports, to be ready to greet visitors next month.
