Tourism Authority of Thailand warns of venomous jellyfish during monsoon season

Thailand –

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is warning the public about enormous and venomous jellyfish during the monsoon season.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) would like to advise tourists to be extra careful when swimming or snorkelling in Thai waters due to the season of venomous jellyfish, and not take any risks by entering waters where warning signs have been posted.

While it is extremely rare for swimmers and divers in Thailand to be stung by jellyfish, TAT does ask that everyone planning to swim or dive, particularly in the Southern Regions of the country, be aware that there may be jellyfish present.

Meanwhile officials have warned swimmers to be aware of flame jellyfish found near a beach at the Hong Island in the Mueang Krabi district.
