Phi Phi national park cuts fees by 50% to stimulate tourism

Maya Bay
Koh Phi Phi Leh

The Department of National Parks controlling the islands of Phi Phi and neighbouring areas, has issued a notice to tourism operators that the national park fee would decrease by 50% up until the start of December this year.

The Phi Phi national park fee is normally 400 baht per adult and 200 baht per child.

This initiative aims to help stimulate tourism to Thailand’s national parks and allow local operators to provide cheaper access to the park.

Visitors to Phi Phi prior to August 1 will be able to walk on the Maya Bay beach at this discounted rate. F August 1 to October 1, when Maya Bay is closed to ‘on beach’ visits, the national park fee will continue at the discounted rate. Visitors will still be able to visit the famous bay but only view from just outside the bay – it’s still worthy of a visit.

Since the removal of the Thailand Pass more and more travellers will now be visiting the islands and surrounding areas of Koh Phi Phi Don and Koh Phi Phi Leh for the amazing marine life and restored natural beauty.

The Thailand Pass, and the compulsory US$10,000 insurance are now not applicable for anyone arriving after July 1, 2022.
