Football team rescue cave in Mae Sai to reopen to public Nov. 15

The Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Mae Sai that was the center of world attention following the rescue of the Mu Pa football team in July is reopening to the public tomorrow, Nov. 15.

Plans to turn the cave and the area around it into a tourist attraction were first announced July 4 while the kids were still stuck in the cave and were later confirmed to include a museum just after the football team was rescued.

It’s not clear from reports whether museum being built on the site has been completed – as of Sept. 30 construction of the main building had not long started.

People have been visiting the cave site since the cave rescue drama but the cave itself has been closed to public access.

The access to the cave will be restricted to guided tours with capacity for around 500-700 people a day with upgrades inside the cave, as well as restrictions in place said to insure public safety.
