Mae Sai Cave to be turned into museum commemorating the Wild Boar rescue

Confirming a report from July 4 that the Thai government plans to turn the Tham Luang Nang Non cave at the center of the rescue effort for the Wild Boar (Mu Pa) football kids and coach into a tourist attraction, the latest plan for the site is to establish a museum of remembrance of the rescue effort.

The proposal comes from the head of the rescue mission Narongsak Osottanakorn, who said at a press conference that “the area will become a living museum, to show how the operation unfolded” that “will become another major attraction for Thailand.”

As per the original report, Thai officials believe the unprecedented international coverage the cave got from international media has put the cave and Mae Sai on the map making it ideal to develop as a tourist destination.

Concerns remain, however, in regards to safety at the site given that it is prone to flooding, the exact cause that saw the footballers and their coach trapped in the cave to begin with.
