$86.61 for an annual work permit and $23.10 to enter the Night Safari, once. Since the school paid the department of employment, I guess it’s the better deal. (I did have to provide the pics, though, and that was $6.35.) I’m not usually a big fan of animal prisons but it was pretty awesome watching Nicholas pet a giraffe and Gabriel get licked by a deer.
Taking pictures on a moving tram of uncooperative animals, however, is a different story.
It was easier to take pictures of the boys standing stock still with various reptiles perched on them. We stopped at a variety of Mae Rim farms… cobra, crocodile, and monkey, each for about $5 to $10.
The turtles and gibbons at the Chiang Mai Zoo were also easy to photograph since at least I wasn’t moving. Entrance to the Zoo and Aquarium is $19.34 but this was 5th grade’s field trip so the school provided my tickets. Go chaperone! (Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration since the Thai teachers actually did all the work. I merely tagged along.)
It was a great week but I’m glad it’s pouring rain this Friday evening so I have a good excuse to curl up in bed with a book and not be out spending baht. Good night!
