Bangkok 16th-26th April 2010

  • Sarah and I didn’t plan to spend 10 days in Bangkok at the end of our holiday in Bali; we were stranded there thanks to the volcano in Iceland that put a stop to all flights to and from northern Europe...Geoff Upton reports

Bangkok, Thailand May 2004

  • Unlike last year, this was primarily a shopping trip to Bangkok for all the things I cannot get in Vietnam (shoes in particular). However, I had agreed with my girlfriend that I could sneak away for a short time to get some bird watching in....Hanno Stamm reports.
Spoon-billed Sandpiper

Lampakbia, Petburi province, Thailand 2004

  • The traditional site for Spoon-billed Sandpiper in Thailand has up till now been Khok Kham at Samut Sakorn. Though the birds are still present there, this season a 'new' site for the same specie has emerged at the province of Petburi. This site is a little more then an hour away from Khok Kham but holds so much more to see for the avid birdwatcher...Peter Ericsson reports.

A Bangkok Morning Concert March 2000

  • Peter Ericsson takes us on a tour of the dawn Chorus in Bangkok

Bankok, Khao Nor Chuchi, Krabi, Phang Nga 1-29/3/01.

  • My girlfriend and I travelled to Thailand for a month's birding and 'chilling out' - or so I was told! So as such, this was not a totally dedicated birding 'burn-out'. The main goals were Spoon-billed Sandpiper, which I knew to be still there to within a week or so, Gurney's Pitta, Nordmann's Greenshank, and possibly Masked Finfoot. We scored 3 out of 4...Nick Ransdale reports

Craig Robson's "Birds of Thailand" is a tour de force...950 mouth watering species all beautifully illustrated and expertly described, each with its own distribution map. The natural riches of Thailand make it an ever more popular birding destination and this indispensible guide will set the standard there for years to come.

A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia
Craig Robson: Buy from or

  • A new flexi-cover edition of this superb and influential book is now available (UK) making it far more useful in the field. The birds of South-East Asia details the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of the 1250 species and distinctive sub-species of the region covering Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, West Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. The illustrations are excellent and Craig Robson's text reflects his position as one of the foremost ornithological authorities of S.E.Asia. Indispensable for anyone visiting the area.

Recommended travel books for Thailand:

Lonely Planet: Thailand
Joe Cummings, Steven Martin: Buy from or
  • Many backpackers refer to the various Lonely Planet guides as South East Asia bibles, and indeed treat them as such. Taking just a glimpse at Lonely Planet: Thailand, it's not difficult to understand why. Crammed into over 1000 pages is everything you could want to know about pretty much every region of Thailand.
Lonely Planet: Thailand's Islands and Beaches
Joe Cummings: Buy from or
  • One of the main reasons people visit Thailand is for the scenery and amazing wildlife concentrated along its beautiful coast line--from the hippy resort of Had Rin and the sea Gypsy fishing villages around Koh Surin to the beautiful coral and waterfalls scattered around its coast. It gives you what you need to know about the main destinations. There is a whole section on Thailand's marine environment including beautiful colour photos. However, it also includes good information on Bangkok where many people either begin or end their journeys.
