Kanchanaburi park officials remove entry ban for foreigners




A ban on foreigners visiting the Srinakarin Dam National Park in the western province of Kanchanaburi has been rescinded. Park officials say both foreigners and Thais are now welcome to enjoy the park as it re-opens to visitors.

A report in Khaosod English says the ban on foreigners was originally announced on the park’s official Facebook page two weeks ago. The post stated that the park would re-open to Thai citizens only, regardless of how long a foreigner, who might wish to visit, had lived in Thailand. The post has since been edited to remove reference to the policy.

National Parks chief Thanya Netithamkul says there is no ban on foreign visitors at any of the country’s national parks, but that everyone, foreign and Thai, must register prior to arrival and comply with Covid-19 hygiene regulations.

        I thought that entry to these parks was 10x what Thais pay…

    The fact that they banned foreigners in the first place, means i will never consider going to a Thai National Park again.

    I think foreigners like myself should not visit such places even after they change their policy at least not for a while. I am sure there are other places in Thailand to spend our money and maybe they would reconsider such ignorant policies in the future. Everyone bringing the virus into Thailand now are Thai.

    B300 for foreigners. I do not know what the Thais pay. They like to hide that.
    Probably B50.
    Well, they did ban foreigners, and now they kindly allows us in to pay the overpriced racist fee.
    Probaby because there are not enough mug foreigners for them to make a nice living.
    Let us see how well they live off the peanuts the Thais pay them.
    I will never go.
