Famous Thai cave rescue site becomes major new tourist attraction

The site of the famous Tham Luang cave rescue, where twelve children and their coach were rescued from a flooded cave system in June 2018, has become a famous tourist attraction.

Tham Luang Nang Non (Cave of the Sleeping Lady) in Thailand's Chiang Rai province became famous last June during the rescue of the Wild Boar football team who had become trapped during monsoon flooding.

Following a clean-up operation, the Tham Luang caves are now open to visitors, as seen in this footage captured on January 15.

An international team of divers rescued 13 members of the team but Thai diver Saman Kunan died during the operation.

Visitors are now flocking to the site and paying respect to the rescuers and Saman, who is remembered by a statue fronting a museum detailing the rescue.

Some 7,000 folk, mostly Thai, visit the site each week according to local police.
