No change in Phi Phi national park fees

PHUKET: The entrance fees to the national park at Phi Phi Island remain unchanged, with foreign adults charged 400 baht per visit, a top park official there has confirmed.

“There have been no changes to the national park entry fees at Phi Phi,” said Boonname Chauyradom, assistant park chief of the Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park.

“Rumors that the entry fee for foreigners has increased are not true.”

Mr Boonname noted that entry fees for the park have not changed since 2010.

“The fees remain the same: 200 baht per foreign adult and 100 baht per foreign child for entering the parts of the park that are on the mainland,” he said.

“If a foreign visitor wants to enter any of the marine areas of the park, such as those at Phi Phi or any other islands within the park, they will be charged 400 per foreign adult and 200 baht per foreign child.”

Mr Boonname explained that Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park comprises six parts, some of which are on the mainland, and others, such as at Phi Phi, are in marine areas within the park.

“For example, a foreign adult visiting Susan Hoi [Fossil Shell Beach], which is also inside the park, will be charged 200 baht for entry because it is on the mainland,” he said.

“But a foreign adult tourist visiting the park at Phi Phi Island will have to pay 400 baht because it is considered a part of the marine area of the park.”

Entry for Thais costs 40 baht per adult and 20 baht per child regardless of which part of the park they visit, he also confirmed.

Mr Boonname urged visitors and tour agencies to heed only official notices by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) regarding price hikes to enter national parks.

“We often hear rumors that entry fees to national parks have or are about to rise, but please ignore them unless there is an official announcement from the DNP,” he said.

“If you have any doubts, please check the DNP website [click here], which lists the entry fees to all national parks in Thailand.”
