THAILAND is set to reopen one of its most famous attractions, the Maya Bay made famous by film “The Beach.”
The film released in 2000, starring Leonardo DiCaprioa, made the spot so popular that it was closed due to overcrowding.
The popular destination has also been off limits to tourists since June 2018 as officials embarked on a rejuvenation program aimed at reviving the popular area’s decimated corals.
Located in Thailand’s Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park, Maya Bay is part of Phi Phi Leh.
Unlike the much larger Phi Phi Don, home to an abundance of budget and mid-range accommodation options, Phi Phi Leh was only open to day-trip visitors prior to the closure of Maya Bay.
