Some museums and parks across Thailand free through January to honor late king

Yesterday, the Fine Arts Department announced that historical parks and museums under their jurisdiction across the country will offer free entry until the end of January to honor the late king. And, get this, they are free for foreigners as well as Thai nationals.

That offer will extend to the country’s ten parks that are categorized as historical spots, such as the old capitals of Sukhothai, Ayutthaya and several more, reported Khaosod English.

Closer to home, people can enjoy free entry to places such as the Royal Elephant Museum, the National Museum, Chao Sam Phraya National Museum, Ramkhamhaeng National Museum and the Museum of Royal Barges.

Though entering these sites will be free, charges may still apply for parking and incidentals.
