Tourist destinations in Khao Yai, Wang Nam Keaw, are looking forwards to welcoming tourists during the high season, with nearly 100 per cent of accommodation booked up till the end of the year.

According to Pongthep Malachasingh, the president of the Wang Nam Keaw tourism promotion club, the local tourism industry expects to earn up to 1.5 billion baht during this year’s high season. In addition, the temperature in Wang Nam Keaw has already dropped to 18-19 degrees Celsius, attracting large numbers of visitors to the area to enjoy the thick fog covering the area.
