The Army will close its Kings’ Park in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan, for 15 days from November 15 for maintenance, a tourism official said on Saturday.

Orasa Avudhkhom, director of the Prachuap Khiri Khan Office of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, said her office has reached an agreement with the Thanarat Fort, which is in charge of the park, to close it for maintenance of the sculptures of the seven great kings of Thailand.

Workers would also use the period to restore landscaping in the park, she added.

The park, which features giant statues of the kings, is located at the Army Non-commissioned Officer School and is opposite the Suanson Pradiphat Army recreation site.

Orasa said the park had been visited by more than 600,000 people from July 1 to September 25.

First time I've heard it called King's Park. It wasn't until the end of the 2nd paragraph that the penny dropped.

I thought the name was Rajabakti (spelling) Park. That's what all the roadsigns say.

You do have to check in these days i.e, stop and show your ID Card, which is put to a device at the gate. However, that's only the driver, and I don't know if they manually enter the number of passengers in the vehicle.

Thanks for that BB. Haven't been for a while and back then there were no checks.
