Turtle island to be opened to visitors

PHANG NGA: The Similan National Park authorities will open nine islands to visitors from next Thursday, including one that is usually closed to the public for the protection of sea turtles. Tipawadee Thambamrung, the park’s public relations officer at the Tub Lamu office, told the Gazette, “It’s very special for visitors this year. We’ve going to allow them to stay on Koh Hu Yong. This island is usually closed to visitors because we raise protected sea turtles there.” The park, which is closed to visitors each low season, will be open from next Thursday until May 15 next year. For more information call the park office at 076-411914, 076-421265 or 076-595045.
