Krabi national parks provide facilities for disabled, elderly





Two national parks in Krabi province, Hat Nopparat Thara-Koh Phi Phi and Than Bok Khorani, have provided facilities for disabled and elderly tourists.


The ramps, wheelchair parking lots and disabled toilets are in line with Natural Resources and Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa’s policy to improve the 155 national parks nationwide under a "universal design" idea.




The idea includes “friendly site designs” for elders, the disabled and patients.


Hat Nopparat Thara-Koh Phi Phi park chief Worapoj Lomlim said his park has also improved a handful of ports – such those at Maya Bay, Koh Phai (Phai Island) and Phi Phi Island – from which to view the Andaman Sea.




“We want all tourists to be able to access all attractive areas of the national park, and we have focused on their convenience and safety,” he said.

Worapoj also said closure of the park has helped natural resources there to recover to a “fertile state”. 


“Natural resources at Maya Bay have returned to a beautiful state after it was closed two years ago, before the Covid-19 outbreak,” he said.
