Maya Bay Rehabilitation

Thailand’s Department of National Parks has announced the indefinite closure of Maya Bay due to the prevailing ecological effects of mass tourism.
Maya Bay was supposed to reopen on October 1st after four months of closure but after careful evaluation, it is evident that its ecosystem has not recovered to a decent level. The indefinite closure is implemented to give way to further rehabilitation until its ecosystem normalizes.

Hotel Prepayment Policy During High Season

Asia World would like to inform all our agents that during high season, 20 Nov 2018 - 20 Feb 2019, our reservations team will be asking for prepayments that would correspond to the hotel’s prepayment conditions. Please note that this policy is implemented by the hotels in order to secure the bookings.

Half Day Doi Suthep Temple Tour in Chiang Mai

Asia World would like to announce that the Half Day Doi Suthep Temple Tour in Chiang Mai will not be available on 31 Dec 2018 until 01 Jan 2019. A great number of both locals and tourists flock the temple during these dates and will likely cause inconvenience and a less favourable experience of the tour. Please contact our reservation officers for other options.

Elephant Nature Park Itinerary Update

As part of the continuing efforts to promote a more sustainable and natural environment for the elephants at Elephant Nature Park, bathing with the elephants will no longer be part of the program. Instead, guests will only view them bathe from the viewing platform by the river bank.
Feeding, meeting the herd and the rest of the activities in the previous itinerary remain unchanged.

Temporary Closure of Sampran Riverside Thai Village

After 45 years of continuous operations, the Sampran Riverside Thai Village will temporarily close from 01 July until 31 December 2018 due to a scheduled major renovation. The activities being undertaken in the Thai Village will be suspended during this period. Asia World will be informing agents whose bookings will be affected and provide alternatives.

Asia World Overseas Banks

Asia World has closed our bank accounts in the UK, Germany and USA. This is because very few of our overseas partners were using these banks for their payments to Asia World. As such, please be informed that we no longer accept any payments sent to these accounts. From here on, all payments must be directly made to our Bangkok head office bank account.
