Do they have a Thai and Farang price?
Dual pricing?

I thought the dual price applied to all non Thais not just those of European heritage.

You can check every Mondya, Satuday or Sanday. On Mondya-Satuday from 10.00am-9.30pm, on Sanday only from 10.00-09.30pm.

Try....Monday, Saturday or Sunday!

First I was confused by stevenl's misspellings. I thought his spelling corrector was going funky but seems like he just used the spelling that they use on the official site which created some nice confusion. Well done ?

 

I agree the prices are pretty high. That's more than the entry fees to most world famous sights.

Usually dual pricing with the Thai price in Thai script so tourists etc. don't understand they are discriminated against.

And this is from the Aquarium in the new Central or something totally unrelated?

It is a demonstration of dual pricing and how it is disguised and a comment on the high prices expected at the new Aquarium. In other words will there be dual pricing and is only the foreigner pricing being quoted.  Happy now?

It wasn't phrased as a question and sounded more like you're saying there's dual pricing going on. But I haven't seen any indication of that whatsoever and I've never seen dual pricing (in regards to nationality) at Central anywhere for anything.

 

Badrabbit in his OP mentioned that his GF told him the high price and I assume his GF is Thai and so she would have gotten the lower price if there was any.

 

If you really want to know, then you can call +6603030333 which is the official ticket hotline.

That phone number is bogus. Doesn't work or even seem right.
030 isn't a landline or mobile.

Can't say I'm surprised they can't even get the number right.

So I went up there today for a look and went to the Aquarium. It's not open.
Charging 1400 per person will not get Thais in so I'm willing to bet that's it's a dual price zone.

We will find out eventually.

Why do you say that, any evidence?

Because Siam Ocean World in Bangkok also has dual pricing, as has literally every single attraction in Thailand, except a few that are run by foreigners.
