Park entrance fee up for foreign tourists

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.
