Department publishes guidelines for national park visitors

By THE NATION

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation on Saturday (December 14) posted on its Facebook page a list of Dos and Don’ts for tourists visiting national parks and wildlife reserves to ensure their own safety and that of nature.

 

 

The department mentioned the increase in tourist traffic, as the temperature falls in winter, at mountainous national parks for camping and taking pictures of morning fog and wild flowers.

 

To ensure safety while visiting mountains, trekking routes and scenic points, here are some regulations that must be followed:

 

1 Do not stray off the routes or scenic points designated by National Parks, as uncharted routes can be dangerous.

 

2 Do not stand close to the cliff or try to look down it. Make sure to maintain a distance of at least one metre from the cliff, especially those who are afraid of heights or have physical limitations.

 

3 Be careful when taking pictures near cliffs or mountaintops and always check your surroundings before sitting/posing for picture. Refrain from playing or teasing with each other near these points.

 

4 Do not try to pave your own routes or making shortcuts in the National Parks, as it can cause confusion to other tourists and is against the law for destroying National Park’s environment.

 

Those requiring assistance from the Department, can contact its hotline on 1362, which is available 24/7.

2 Do not stand close to the cliff or try to look down it. Make sure to maintain a distance of at least one metre from the cliff, especially those who are afraid of heights or have physical limitations.

 

 Would five Thai men to one foreigner be considered a "physical limitation?"

 

 5. Do not go even near a cliff if you've got a life insurance in favor of your beloved wife.

The rules are all in Thai language so that tells you which tourists they want.

I don't visit Nat Parks.  I went to one year's ago and they were trying to get me to pay 700 baht to go in.   Yet the wife was only 60 baht!  So I  said something unkind and left never to return.  Dual pricing really pi**** me off!  😡

+1 that experience.

Never been to one since, and never will.

It's unfortunate, but after 3x I'm now a member of this club too. We have quite a large family and every 6 months the whole clan meets up, unless it's at a restaurant or open area I don't attend. My Thai resident card isn't good enough.

Not really. What it says is that government officers can only speak one language, and then only if it's pretty basic.
