Thailand's Maya Bay, made famous by the film The Beach, will close to visitors for four months from June to allow its coral reefs to recover from rising temperatures and the environmental impact of thousands of visitors each day. The bay, on Phi Phi Leh island in the Andaman Sea, was the main location of the 2000 film starring Leonardo Di Caprio, which revealed to viewers the stunning beauty of Thailand's turquoise seas and white-powder beaches, spurring many to visit.
Note how this is like Korean Drama, where the locations for shooting became tourist hotspots after the drama became popular...
