21. What’s The Deal With Mosquito Island, and Why Can’t I Visit It?
Mosquito Island or Koh Yung National Park has been closed to anyone visiting for tourism purposes, the closure has been in place since May 2016 and was implicated by the Travel and Tourism Authority of Thailand. The reason behind the closure is to allow the corals surrounding the island to rebuild to a natural state. As of yet no date has been announced to reopen the island. Any tours with an advertised stop at Mosquito Island will instead have a longer stop over at Bamboo Island and Mosquito Island can be viewed only from the boat.
