300 baht that's damn cheap for a game of golf. Is that sports day only?

God that is about $12 Canadian to go visit the place.
Darn, I should have went last year, during my visit!
Jimmy Greaves! You slay me! Good comment tho! lol.
I went to the North of Thailand and to get to the
Pagodas at Doi Inthanon, it was up to 400 baht
for Farangs, and I had seen the place for only 250
baht before, so I stayed with the van and driver. Guess that
was my Scotch half that kicked in on my last visit.

According to the following it is ALL National Parks. But the usual conflicting reports concerning the amount:

http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general ... foreigners

Park entrance fee up for foreign tourists

Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park in Nakhon Thai district of Phitsanulok province has increased the entrance fee for foreign tourists from 200 baht to 400 baht each from Feb 1, a Public Relations Department report said.

Park chief Suwan Panunampa said the increase was in line with an announcement by the National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation Department that admission fees for foreigners should be brought into line at national parks throughout the country, effective Feb 1.

Entrance fees for visiting national parks have not been the same all over the country but vary depending on the location.

Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park previously charged foreigners 200 baht. This had been increased to 400 baht per visit.

The entry charge for Thai nationals remains 40 baht for adults and 20 baht for children.

Mr Suwan said he did not believe the increase would affect the overall number of tourists at the park, as fewer than 100 foreigners visited Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park last year.

Nothing to do with this stupid comparison. Do we ask in Europe or UK a higher entry price for
foreigners ? Its just a racist decision to cheat farangs.. So I repeat, national parks should be boycotted.

Stupid comparison? If I travel somewhere, I like to see as much as I can in as short a time as possible. I would not spend huge amounts to get there, and then deprive myself for the sake of a couple of quid.

Does it happen elsewhere in Europe? We've had this discussion several times on here before, and the answer is YES. It definitely happens in the UK.

But Big Boy like myself will get in at the Thai price. Residents do. It really only affects tourists (on holiday). I'm sure it won't deter people on holiday from visiting these places after spending a fortune getting here.

Boycotting national parks is really going to put the wind up them!!! As stated in the article, fewer than 100 tourists visited the park mentioned in a whole year!

As I am a resident, I don't care, but I warn tourists. Boycott Thai national parks ! ! Even if only 100 visit each park, calculate the stolen amount.

Exactly, most National Parks only see Thais anyway.

If for example I travel to Krabi as I did last year, and want to spend a night/day visiting the splendours of Khao Sok National Park en-route, I wouldn't deprive myself for the sake of a couple of quid - each to his own :?

[Admin edit: abusive comments removed.]
I witnessed a young tourist visiting Sukhothai and at every ruin he was asked to pay 200 Baht. The poor man was upset to spend so much money at only one historical site. I had to fight with my driving license in my hand to get the Thai price. So Big..Boy, use your brain before writing your self-centredness comments.
