The Most Beautiful Island in Thailand Is Closed!
There are many beautiful islands in Thailand. However, the most beautiful island in the country is no other than Koh Tachai. Located in Similan National Park, the island is known as the virgin island by the locals. Thus, it is also more popular known as the most beautiful island in the country. A few months ago, a decision was made to close the island until further notice.
Why is Koh Tachai Closed?
Since Koh Tachai is opened for tourist, the numbers grew to hundreds daily. The pristine beach and environment has taken the toll with the high volume of tourists daily. With its natural beauty, Koh Tachai is a popular tourist destination for both Thais and foreign tourists. The decision for the authorities to close the island now is to save it before it is too late. It is a very bold move to conserve the island so it can return to its pristine condition. Luckily we went last year to Koh Tachai as it is now closed for good.
Maybe Koh Tachai will reopen next year, a few years later or a decade later. If it reopens again, make sure you visit the island asap as it is worth every penny to visit.
