Maya Bay Rehabilitation

AThailand’s Department of National Parks has announced the indefinite closure of Maya Bay due to the prevailing ecological effects of mass tourism.
Maya Bay was supposed to reopen on October 1st after four months of closure but after careful evaluation, it is evident that its ecosystem has not recovered to a decent level. The indefinite closure is implemented to give way to further rehabilitation until its ecosystem normalizes.

Elephant Nature Park Itinerary Update

As part of the continuing efforts to promote a more sustainable and natural environment for the elephants at Elephant Nature Park, bathing with the elephants will no longer be part of the program. Instead, guests will only view them bathe from the viewing platform by the river bank. Feeding, meeting the herd and the rest of the activities in the previous itinerary remain unchanged.

Asia World Overseas Banks

Asia World has closed our bank accounts in the UK, Germany and USA. This is because very few of our overseas partners were using these banks for their payments to Asia World. As such, please be informed that we no longer accept any payments sent to these accounts. From here on, all payments must be directly made to our Bangkok head office bank account.
