Press Release   •   Jan 11, 2016 18:58 +07

Thailand will in June 2016 be hosting the World's first naturist conference on a string of house boats floating in the middle of a big tropical lake. The conference - NATCON 2016 - is the 5th International Naturist Conference which has now been announced for 10-12 June 2016.

The string of rafts will be arranged in a half circle with different nationalities on each raft. Having rafts for each different nationality reflects the increasing number of naturists from India, China, Malaysia and Singapore who have started visiting Thailand as the number of naturists resorts have grown. Today, there are five resorts in Thailand catering to naturists and shortly after the conference a new naturist friendly resort in the top end of the market is scheduled to open in Pattaya. 

A session during the afternoon on the second day of the conference is dedicated to discussing how Naturism in India can move forward. It is hoped that the Indian participants during this session will be able to agree on founding a naturist association for India.

Participation in the conference is limited to either Ordinary or Premium members of Naturist Association Thailand. Non members who wish to participate in the conference must first apply for Membership here:
