TAT INFO: National Park closes: reported on Bangkok, 18 April, 2018
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to announce that the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) has started its annual seasonal closure of several attractions in 66 of 147 national parks nationwide.

According to the DNP, this is normal practice, as it closes several attractions every year for a certain period, depending on weather and park conditions. Dates are varied, and the closure is often due to extreme weather, especially during the rainy months, that may create unsafe conditions and allows for some ecological recovery time.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said: “Natural rejuvenation is a key to preserving the biodiversity and pristine quality of Thailand’s amazing nature and natural resources. I believe that closing off several attractions for certain months during the rainy season demonstrates Thailand’s commitment to ensure sustainable environmental management of the country’s valuable nature heritage.”

According to the DNP, Thailand currently has a total of 147 national parks, covering an area of 70,038.65 square kilometres or 13.64 percent of the land area of the country. Of the total, there are 59 national parks in the North, 43 in the South, 25 in the Northeast, and 20 in the Central, Western and Eastern Regions.

This year, the DNP closes several attractions in 66 national parks nationwide, including in 24 national parks in the North, in 28 national parks in the South, in nine national parks in the Northeast, and in five national parks in the Central, Western and Eastern Regions, which are:

(20 May 15) ... In November 2014 and April 2015 we got 2 travellers (friends), who got brain-stroke and both had to have operation very emergence.

The 1st person (Europe), he got Internation Travel Insurance: this did holp him a lots. He was send from Krabi Hospital first to Phuket Hospital, then got brain operation in Bangkok and got send back home via private jet with a doctor. All Hospitals were great doctor and team, who holp him on that time. All costs were covered via his Insurance. He hasn't pay any thing for. Right now he can move his left hand bit more and recognize friends and family again.

The 2nd person (Europe), she had not apply for any International Travel Insurance. Also she had to have brain operation in Krabi due the doctor had to save her life, otherwise she could die.. The Doctor was greate. She feel better now, remember thing more and more, can speaks and moves on the left side. But the right side can not really move now. Lots training she still need.
As she still was in the hospital, nearly every 2 days we got asking from the nurse for the payment, cause she has nothing. Friend and Family abroad did donat for the cost. One of her friend fly to Krabi and work out lots to bring her back home. It is not easy, cause no any insurance protect her. If she is enough fit, then she can transfer back to her country again, but it needs time so long she can not really walk. All process might need about 3 months together.

Both could die, if no any help there. May be it is a point to think "what shall we do when we travel to other country". Let think about that and protect yourselve. May be just pay bit more, cause you never know what will be happend on the next day or next second.. I am not Insurance Agency, but I saw these 2 accidents.
