Thai authorities have decided that the island of Koh Tachai off the west coast of Thailand is to be closed to tourists indefinitely to prevent the island's fragile nature being destroyed.

According to Tunya Netithammakul, Thailand's conservation director, the island has become such a popular tourist destination that the nature on the island is about to be destroyed.

The ban does not go into effect immediately, however, so tourist are still allowed to visit.

But from October 15 it will no longer be allowed for tourists to visit the island.

- By closing the island it will make it possible to rehabilitate the nature of the island before it's too late, said Netithammakul to the Bangkok Post.
