According to the photographer, Mr. Hatchakorn Suntornprasert, he wanted to share the abundance of nature online after the dive.
He said this time of the year is usually high tourist season for Koh Chang, especially for divers wanting to see the corals but, this year, with COVID-19, there have been far fewer visitors, which has allowed nature to regenerate.
To visit Koh Chang, which is in Trat Province, a negative COVID-19 test result, timed no later than 72 hours prior to arrival, must be presented.
87 people in Trat have been found infected with COVID-19 since last month.
