There are now - as of 1 May 2017 - over 70 signups for NATCON - the annual international naturist conference in Thailand. This year, NATCON takes place in the weekend 9 - 11 June 2017. Last year, the number of participants were 46 naturists.
"With one month still to go, we expect some more signups and maybe a few last minute regrets which realistically should bring the number to around 80 participants this year," says Bruce Kendall, one of the volunteer organizers.
"Traditionally, we see more signups as we get closer to the event," he adds.
So far, the registrations cover naturists from not only Thailand, but also from Malaysia, Singapore, India, SriLanka, Australia, China, France, Denmark, Israel, Pakistan, Canada, and USA.
Registration for and payment for the event is found here.
NATCON will again this year take place on a string of house boats floating in the middle of a big tropical lake some 5 hours drive North of Bangkok.
Your attendance fee covers all three days and includes two nights accommodation on the raft in shared dormitory rooms. The fee also covers all food and refreshments during the event as well as personal insurance.
Participants must be ready to leave from Bangkok on Friday 9 June at 8.00. If you plan to arrive by plane that morning, your plane must have a scheduled arrival no later than 6.00 o’clock. If you arrive later than that, you will miss the minivan transportation and will have to provide your own transportation.
Consider arriving in Bangkok the evening before and staying overnight. Barefeet Naturist Resort is fully booked but we have made reservation for plenty of rooms at a place only a few minutes by walk from Barefeet. Click here to book.
The event ends on Sunday 11 June at 12.00. From there it will take the minivans about 5 hours to reach Bangkok. If you are flying out of Bangkok on Sunday, your earliest departure should be 19.00 from the airport. If that is not possible, consider an early Monday morning flight.
