The Erawan National Waterfall officials have closed off the tier 6 and 7 levels of the popular waterfall due to continuous rain up to the weekend which made the hiking trail extremely slippery. Some tourists slipped and were injured.

On Sunday there were many tourists slipping while on their way to tier 6 and 7 of the waterfall. A rescue team was called in to find and recover the injured tourists from the waterfall’s slippery tracks.

The Erawan Waterfall is inside the Erawan national Park located in Kanchanaburi Province, north-west of Bangkok.

There was continuous rain around the Erawan Waterfall region over the last week. The trail that leads to tier 6 and tier 7 has become muddy and slippery. Park officials say they will re-open the Tiers 6 and 7 when the mud has dried out and the pathway safe for hiking again. The water level at Erawan Waterfall has remained the same and officials say tourists can visit Tiers 1 to 5 with no safety problems.

At least there’ll be plenty of water to see!

The Thai government is blaming the Egyptian embassy for lobbying for the 31 military personnel visiting Rayong province to avoid the 14 day mandatory quarantine. Some 1,889 members of the Rayong community, who visited the same malls in Rayong City (named as the Laem Thong Department Store) at the same time as the Egyptian crew member, are now facing a 14 day home quarantine whilst the government sorts out the mess. Dr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin, spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration, referred to the 31 Egyptian military personnel, who had a quick stop-over in the eastern province of Rayong on […]

Visa amnesty, looming July 31 deadline in Thailand | The Thaiger

NOTE: This post is not designed to scare anyone, but simply prompt foreigners, currently in Thailand, about the situation with visas. There is a list of all embassies in Thailand at the end of this article. The Thai government has had a visa amnesty in force that has allowed foreigners to stay in Thailand during the Covid-19 outbreak. It automatically extended all visas until July 31. But that date is approaching fast, and whilst there has been conjecture about an extension to the visa amnesty beyond July 31, NOTHING has been confirmed (despite rumours). To be clear, the Thai government are […]
