With Covid-19 closing or prohibiting many things people love about Thailand – nightlife, massage shops, cheap drinks, even some beaches – the country’s natural beauty is once again be available for people to enjoy. The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has reopened 60 of the 155 national parks across all of Thailand from now until further notice.

The national parks will reopen but under strict Covid-19 safety measures, with all visitors reminded to follow Thailand’s ubiquitous DMHTTA rules:

D Distancing H Handwashing T Testing for Covid-19
M Mask Wearing T Temperature Check A Alert Application

While the parks are reopened as of August 18, travellers are warned to check the National Park Office list before journeying to a park to make sure they have all the latest information.

The Director-General of the DNP said the reopening of the national parks will greatly benefit struggling local businesses and neighbouring communities. 95 more parks remain closed, but this is mainly the usual yearly seasonal closure due to the rainy season.

Below is a list of the now reopened national parks by region, with indications if they are fully reopened or if any attractions are closed.
