Thailand national parks reduce entrance fees

December 7, 2007 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

The National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department has cut the entrance fees for foreigners to national parks from 400 baht to 200 baht. Many foreigners were already irritated by the double-tiered entrance fees, vastly lower for Thai citizens than for foreigners, but the 400 baht rate was deemed too high, compared with the poor facilities for tourists at the parks.

Effective from Dec 1, entrance fees for adult foreigners have been cut from 400 to 200 baht for the most popular parks, such as Angthong Marine National Park, Doi Inthanont in Chiang Mai, Chae Son in Lampang, and Khao Yai in Korat.

However, the entrance fee for Surin and Similan Islands, popular scuba dive destinations, is still set at 200 baht for children and 400 baht for adult foreigners.

While foreigners enjoyed a sharp reduction in national park entrance fees, locals will be charged more at some popular sites, in an attempt to bridge the gap between the rates.
