Khao Yai National
- At the end of November 400 baht was being charge here. I've often
found the staff here friendly and a smile and polite conversation
can get one in for a lower fee. The first time I entered for the
local fee I had a bit of a chat in Thai with the staff and they
told me that I should enter for the Thai price; I didn't ask. Try
it and see what happens.
Inthanon National Park - 400 baht here too at the end
Khao Sok National Park
- I was informed yesterday that the entrance fee to Khao Sok has
indeed been raised to 400 baht.
Erawan National Park - Posted
Tree Forum on 5th October was information saying that
400 baht is being charged for foreigners now, plus the extra for
motorcycles and cars.
Khao Pra Bang Khram
Wildlife Sanctuary (Khao Nor Chu Chi) - 200 baht only
when accessing the trail towards the crystal pool. The state of
the trails is poor, even the trail from the swimming pool to the
blue pool. Still gunshots to be heard, litter on trails and the
stream at the toll booth used as a motorcycle wash!
following information was supplied by Dave Milne:
Pra Wihan (on the Cambodian border, near Si Sa Ket province)
- 605 baht, comprising 400 baht entrance, 5 baht to walk along the
road (everyone has to pay this and anywhere else has mine warning
signs), 200 baht to get to the top of the hill. Total rip off ;
the temple isn't that good really, and the view is fairly hazy.
Pretty well the whole place is a market, so you are constantly annoyed
by sellers, small children begging or being tourist "guides"
(we saw Japanese tourists being held hostage by adults until they
paid each child 100 baht at the end. I told the children to go back
to school so escaped this extortion. The market ruins any decent
National Park - 400 baht. Again, not worth it as it is
a very small park with a waterfall that is almost dry outside the
rainy season. View is ok, but hazy.
Waterfall (Part of Khao Yai National Park) - 400 baht.
Didn't pay it. There is another waterfall about 5 km away which
only charges 30 baht for foreigners and about 10 baht for Thais.
Went there instead, very nice.
Floral Gardens - 400 baht. Didn't pay it - we only went
there as it had a coffee shop but they lost our business due to
the entrance fees.
Doi Chiang Dao National
Park - Staff are still charging 200 baht for the permit
to access Den Ya Kat near the top of the mountain and signs at HQ
still say "Wildlife Sanctuary". This permit is valid for
as many days as one asks for on application, eliminating any ambiguity
on whether one must pay every time one enters the park. A permit
is not usually needed if driving the surfaced road that goes behind
