  No charges for cameras

Favorite thing: Most of the smaller temples are free to wander around. All the parkland is definitely free for anyone to take a stroll.

The key sites do have a nominal fee, around 20 to 30 thai baht each. The Historical Study Centre costs a bit more at 100 baht.

To be fair, we didn't even notice that we lobbed out the odd 20 baht note every now and again. Often we got a small printed guide to where we were thrown in for the price. For the costs to maintain this heritage site I feel we were undercharged, yup you read that right.

There are no extra charges for cameras, or tripods or videos - and it is well worth bringing a tripod if you are thinking of staying after sunset.

Inside some of the (non-ruined) wats it is not correct behaviour to take photographs. The museums may ask you to leave your camera at the desk if you look a bit dodgy.
