Having a Thai driving license, Thai residence visa, Thai work permit or Yellow Thai house registration book no longer gets you the Thai entry price (50 Bht) for Doi Inthanon National Park. No Thai citizenship, then you pay the tourist price of 300 Bht. You have a big group and it can get expensive.

Psst - keep it to this forum, but last time I approached from the Mae Chaem side, the checkpoint was the wrong side of the junction - 0 Bht!

Well that's racist and he can make a complaint about it if he wants.

Also, Asians who are NOT Thai have no right to Thai prices and should pay the higher price. You can point out this hypocrisy by telling the park officials to check the ID cards or passports of all to make sure they are Thai. Burmese, Cambodians and Chinese are foreigners and must pay. Of course, in touristy places they do, but in less touristy ones?
