Quote for Day Trip to Doi Inthanon

Hi

I have been quoted 4,200 Baht for 2 persons to Doi Inthanon Park for a day and this price includes:

- A/C car + gasoline + english speaking driver guide.

- Entrance fees for National Park and King & Queen Pagoda .

- Lunch at local restaurant

Is this a reasonable price and to be expected?

Thanks

1. Re: Quote for Day Trip to Doi Inthanon

I think we paid a bit less but the National Park fees/entrance fees and the lunch were not included in our quote - so it is probably comparable.

The day trip to Doi Inthanon does cost more than a shorter day trip around the Mae Rim area or to the handicrafts etc - because there is so much more fuel and driving involved. It is probably twice as far in the vehicle and fuel prices are comparable to what we would pay in Australia so a big chunk of that quote would be to cover fuel.

It's also usually a longer day so a bit more time involved for the guide/driver.

If you wanted to compare you could email another guide for a quote.

Actually one of the guides has pricing up on their web page. Here is the link to compare. The price seems to be 3800B but I don't think that includes admissions/lunch etc. So same ball park figure.

Hi. My quote is 6800 for three people. Includes lunch, visit to market, chedis etc. does not include entry fee to the park tho. A big chunk of the tour price is fuel. :)

6,800 seems too much if fees are not included. It's around 120km to Inthanon from Chiang Mai. I drive a big SUV and would use less than 1,000 baht of fuel for the trip so fuel is not the major part of the cost.

Does the group tour include all the same stuff?

Includes the same stuff. The main difference is the personal touches. for me personally, I'm happy with being on a group excursion, but some people enjoy the personal feeling of the private car/driver.
