Bangkok, 11 November, 2021 – Doi Inthanon National Park – home to Thailand’s highest peak – in Chom Thong district of Chiang Mai reopened to the public yesterday (10 November, 2021), joining the 135 other national parks around the country to once again be welcoming visitors.

Around 90 minutes’ drive from Chiang Mai city, Doi Inthanon National Park is a popular destination for visitors who flock to various viewpoints there to experience the misty morning weather brought by the cooler months, a picturesque sight that is affectionately referred to as the ‘sea of mist’.

The mountaintop of the 2,565-metre high Doi Inthanon and the Kiew Mae Pan Viewpoint are favourite spots from which to marvel at the mist that blankets the surrounding countryside.

Prevention and control measures against COVID-19 are in place at the Park, which has been certified to SHA Plus standards – meaning at least 70% of Park staff have so far been vaccinated. To enter the Park, visitors must have received at least their first vaccination dose or show proof of a negative result from an RT-PCR test or ATK kit no more than 72 hours earlier, and undergo temperature screening.

While in Doi Inthanon National Park, visitors must strictly follow measures of the Chiang Mai Communicable Disease Committee and the Park’s guidelines.

Visitor numbers are limited to 2,000 people a day, and to no more than 50 people at any point in the Park at any one time. The entrance fee is 300 Baht for adults and 150 Baht for children, and the opening hours are from 05.30 Hrs.-18.30 Hrs. daily.

People planning to visit the Park are encouraged to pre-book through the Que-Q application, while a limited number of tickets will be available at the Park’s entrance.

Here’s the latest opening and closing status of Thailand’s national parks.

Bangkok, 2 December, 2021 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is pleased to report that Thailand features as the main location in the Japanese reality TV show ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’, of which the first episode aired on 25 November, 2021.

In cooperation with the TAT Tokyo Office, a film crew from Amazon Prime Japan and YD Creation Japan comprising 65 actors, production staff, technicians and others travelled to Thailand to shoot for the show in the spectacular Southern provinces of Phuket, Phang-Nga, and Krabi between April and June 2021.

A total of six out of the 10 60-minute episodes of ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’ were filmed in Thailand.

 Aside from the valuable promotional exposure the destination will receive in Japan, a key source market for visitors from the Asian region, the foreign production also generated much-needed income and employment opportunities in the local tourism and film-related sectors of the three chosen locations.

Phuket, Phang-Nga’ and Krabi were among the first destinations in Thailand to reopen to tourism under the Sandbox programme, and the TAT Tokyo Office has capitalised on the interest of foreign filmmaking to promote the world-class tourist appeal and public health safety standards of these destinations.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said “Popular TV shows like ‘The Bachelor’ are an effective way to deliver promotional messages directly to international markets, in this case Japan, which is among the 63 countries and territories from which fully vaccinated visitors can enter Thailand through the Exemption from Quarantine (TEST & GO) programme. With Thailand featuring so significantly in ‘The Bachelor Japan Season 4’, this helps us to promote travel to Thailand now that entry rules are being relaxed and tourists are once again welcomed.”

Fully vaccinated visitors from every country around the world can also visit Thailand via the Living in the “Blue Zone” Sandbox destinations programme. Meanwhile, partially or unvaccinated visitors are also much welcomed via the Happy Quarantine programme. However, to prevent and control the spread of the new Omicron COVID-19 variant, Thailand currently imposes travel restrictions on arrivals from Africa.
