    [TD]BANGKOK, 2 June 2013 (NNT) – Forty-six national parks nationwide will be closed until the end of September, the rainy and monsoon season.

    Mr Teerapat Prayurasiddhi, Deputy Director General of the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation, has announced that 46 national parks across the country will be closed from June to the end of September, which is the monsoon season, to prevent accidents which are more likely to take place than in any other season. However, some those national parks will remain closed until October 31st.

    A rough outline of park closures.

    They don't close them all, only some & only parts of them that they consider dangerous.
