800 BAHT?!?!?!?!?!?

Ouch! And I bet Thai nationals pay something like 80 baht or less!

I'm intending to go there in Feb. We shall be driving down in 3 vehicles. Can you tell me how much the entrance fee was and was it daily or for the length of your stay?
Also is there vehicle accessinto the park i.e. to places such as cabins/accomodation?

snap, I'm back in Thailand for 3 weeks in Feb & this national park is on my list of places to visit. Would love to know more about it.

the admission fee was 800 bahts...BUT there are NO places to stay inside the park. Don't pay the admission fee unless you want to just explore the park. The whole place is vehicle accesible. We stayed at Art's riverview lodge...VERY NICE. Just make sure that if you do the intertube river tour at art's that there are fish in the river that BITE ouchhh.

sounds really cool, did you book a tour?

If that is 800 per day, I certainly will be changing my plans

no no no no, 800 baht is for like a week. AND, you really shouldnt pay it anyway because it just gets you into a very small portion of the park. The hotel we stayed at had tours you could book...I'd recommend doing that.. it's very wonderful there. rent a motorcycle..ahhh perfect.

Good !
I'm really pissedoff at the moment by this new policy of charging 400 baht to foreigners to see anything from a park to a piffling little waterfall, it really shoud be the subject of complaints from foreign Embassies and travel agents.

For meeting lots of folk and having a laugh, i would suggest u stay on the Khao San Road, in Bangkok.
Then head for the islands.

Hello Wildfk

What is really annoying, about the 400baht charge, is that Thai people are only charged 40Bahts, for the same thing.

Hello again Scotslad

I just read your question, about tours.
Everywhere u go, in Thailand, there will be tours on offer. However, tours make Thailand a much more expensive place. And i also think it is more fun, to do things without them. U have more experiences and meet more Thai people. It takes more effort to find out the information, but i think it is worth it.

But if u choose to do tours, they are for sale, absolutely everywhere. Especially, on and near the Khao San Road in Bangkok. And they will be on offer, in the guesthouses, on the islands and the guesthouses in many towns. Travel agents also offer lots of them.

I couldn't give a tinker’s cuss what they charge the locals....I used to get into my local castle for free, etc etc but it is the outrageously high price. I believe in VFM, if someone can wangle a discount or a bargain...well...good for them but we are paying a ridiculous price and the money doesn't even go to ant good use the national parks and environment in Thailand is in a lamentable state of disrepair and then they have an ill thought out plane for a blanket charge that is way over the odds for most places....imagine if you are a family or frequent visitor...in effect it means that visitor numbers to many of these places will reduce and income will reduce and funds for maintenance will reduce....everyone should get their travel agent or embassies to protest this move...it makes Thailand one of the most expensive Eco countries to visit and it already has one of the worst records on environmental conservation!!!!
