A story that started a few years ago looks to finally become a reality.

According to today's press eticketing is about to become a reality in Thailand's national parks in order to reduce corruption in ticket sales. It will begin with a trial at  Hat Noppharat Thara-Mu Koh Phi Phi Marine National Park in Krabi province, Ao Phangnga National Park and Mu Koh Similan National Park in Phangnga province. 

It will then "later" be rolled out to all parks.

Lets hope it will be available online, not only at the ticket points. 
If only at the tickets points then please let 7-eleven get the deal. Bank branch visits are very time consuming. 

I very much doubt this is going to work well. First of all it will take a long time before all people know that the procedure will be to go to a ticket point first before entering a park. Most foreign tourists won't know, but I think even most Thais will not know. Imagine a December or January weekend at the gate of Khao Yai  (at least once they decide to implement this in the entire country) a ton of vehicles arrive, traffic jams in front of the gate. The majority have to u-turn to the nearest 7-eleven, a place with virtually no parking space. And this whole queue of people waiting in line at the 7-eleven. Even worse if it would be at the nearest Krungthai office., all the way back in Pak Chong town... 
Or Kaeng Krachan where the nearest 7-eleven is half an hour drive away.

But lets see. Maybe I should not be pessimistic about this.
