As part of the next phase of easing lockdown restrictions, zoos will open to the public again on Monday with some celebrating by offering free entry to all visitors until June 30th.
However, the zoos will impose visitor limits, open over two entry periods, and only allow people who have booked online or by phone access to the grounds.
The six zoos offering free entry until the end of the month are:
- Khao Kheow Open Zoo (Chonburi)
- Chiang Mai Zoo
- Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) Zoo
- Songkhla Zoo
- Khon Kaen Zoo
- Ubon Ratchathani Zoo
- The Elephant Nature Park (Surin)
To book free tickets for entry to any of the zoos listed above, visitors can call the individual zoo or book online here – https://www.eventpop.me/e/9040/zooThailand.
The zoos will operate over two separate entry periods each day, between 8 am and 12 pm, and between 12 pm and 5 pm. This will assist with reducing crowds and shortening visiting times.
A maximum of 2,000 visitors over the two opening periods are permitted each day.
Upon arrival at the zoo, visitors will have their temperatures checked and must check in to the premises using the ThaiChana application.
There will also be social distancing measures in areas such as ticket booths, food stalls, shuttle buses, and other crowded areas. Hand gel will be available at various locations around the grounds.
