Thailand to fully open zoos nationwide on October 1


The Zoological Park Organization of Thailand will open all of their zoos nationwide fully as of October 1, allowing full capacity, although Covid-19 safety standards will still take place.

Six zoos nationwide, operated by the Zoological Park Organization, will reopen at full capacity after limited previous openings.  Previously, only a small amount of visitors could visit the parks on a daily basis. Under the new plan, the number of visitors will be expanded although reservations are still required. Additionally, Covid-19 measurements like mask wearing, checking in via the Thai Chana application and using hand sanitizer will be required at the parks.

The capacity limit for the zoos are as follows: Khao Kheow Open Zoo will allow 3,000 visitors, Chiang Mai Zoo will allow 2,500 visitors, Nakhon Ratchasima Zoo 3,000 visitors, Khon Kaen Zoo 3,000 visitors, Songkhla Zoo 2,000 visitors, and Ubon Ratchathani Zoo will allow 2,000 visitors. Tickets can be booked online on or directly with the zoos.
