Ko Samet fees.

Recommended Posts

The question should be : Why didn't you have to pay the first time ? :unsure:

 

From https://kohsamed.net/islandinfo.html :

PARK ENTRANCE FEE
Koh Samed being a national park, all visitors must pay a "ONCE ONLY" park entrance fee on arrival of 220 Baht per adult
Thai National adults pay 60 Baht per person. Children under 3 years are free - children between 3 - 14 Thai pay 40 Baht - others pay 100 Baht
Adults over 60 years are free.

Wrong. 200 β for us and 40 β for Thais. Ticket lasts for 5 days. I assume the week before wasn't high season, but still v. busy on the beach.!

I wonder is that all adults or only Thais?

 

I might actually go if there is no fee (I would never go to any venue or park out of principle if I was expected to pay any sort of racist extra fee).

Went there a few times back in the 80's. If I remember correctly it was 150 β for foreigners and 20 β for locals back then.  The first time I paid the fee and I must say the other Thai's in the back of the pick-up were quite embarrassed about it. How times have changed. After that my wife would get the driver to drop us off a couple of hundred metres back from the entrance and we would walk around the back of the village. Not sure about the lay of the land there these days.
