"DNP regulations clearly stipulate that alcoholic drinks and activities that cause noise disturbance are not permitted in the national park area, they said."

out of interest, what about the staff who live in a park like Khao Yai i.e. inside the park 365 days a year, in the accommodation they are provided with.  Are they essentially expected to be sober 24 7?

The rules applies to all the parks so yes it's a total ban. Enforcement seems an issue that Thailand in general struggles with thankfully for some (me ;+) As I recall the total ban came in when groups of college kids from different colleges had a boozed up knife fight in Khao Yai. Maybe here the bigger issue was the noise and show by the authorities who are administering the rules on tourists as they may, or may not.
