BANGKOK — All national parks throughout the country will waive admission for Thai citizens for one day during the Songkran festival.

Throughout the nation, 147 national parks offer free admission for Family Day on April 14, according to Thanya Netithamkul, the deputy director general of the National Parks Department.

Thanya said that although many national parks have faced difficulties during the drought crisis, the protected areas can still provide recreation and relaxation to visitors.

The free admission is only for those holding Thai National ID cards.

Foreign visitors holding such cards can show them to obtain free entry.
