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 2018 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.

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.
