The Legend Siam, a major cultural amusement park in Pattaya with shows and cultural attractions about Thailand, has closed and laid off all workers. A statement yesterday said the move was due to the current economic situation in Thailand caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

The announcement, in English, read: “Due to the economy in Thailand last year and the COVID -19 situation around the world, many tourists have canceled their trips especially in Chonburi and from China, which was a significant source of our business.”

“The company cannot continue our business at this time where we are losing profit. We have to close the business and stop to hire staff from March 3.”

“However, compensation will be paid to staff following the law.”

“Thank you to everyone who did [their] best for the company. You will be employed again if the economic and Coronavirus situation improves. ”
