These leases are only for part of the area, and so those bungalows etc behind will still be there so Tonsai is hardly shutdown. That is sort of like saying Rocklands is shutdown because one area is closed.

We've been speaking to a lot of dudes here and most of the people have heard the same... that it's basically the whole area of jungle inside the u-shaped road that's been sold. All the bungalows on the outside of the road will stay, but the company who's bought the land is going to develop it into a posh resort, driving up prices and making it "nicer" like Railay next door. So no, Tonsai won't be shut down per se but it will likely lose the cheap climbing hippy vibe.

Good thing we're here to say goodbye then :)

I'm going to Thai land at the end of the year.

I'll be in Krabi and Phi Phi. Will this effect my climbing plans?

Where is Tonsai?

Any relation to Tonsai Tower on Phi Phi?
