The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has opened advance booking, from today (Monday) through the “QueQ” application, for visits to its 14 national marine parks.
Tourists can choose the marine parks and the dates and exact timing of their visit, to prevent overcrowding, to protect the environment of the parks.
When tourists log into application on their smart phones, the names of all 14 parks are listed in separate windows so they can make their choice. No overnight stays are allowed.
