Khao Yai, Thailand 2-4/1/05

  • We arrived at Juladit resort a bit before noon , checked in and birded the grounds around the resort for awhile. The plot of land that is right before the resort is normally a sure spot for Red-breasted Parakeets that come to roost in the evenings. In the late morning they have mostly taken off to their feeding grounds but we did manage to find a few birds still hanging around...Peter Ericsson reports.

Limestone Wren-Babbler in Thailand

  • The Limestone Wren-Babbler, Napothera crispifrons, is a locally common bird of central Thailand. However, the habitat where the birds are found is limestone crags, and therefore there are few accessible sites. This brief report gives details about one such site, at a Buddhist temple (wat) near Khao Yai national park...Gary and Marlene Babic report. 

Khao Yai 26-27/10/03

  • A Black-naped Kingfisher faithfully kept to its perch in search for food. Several Red-throated Flycatchers kept calling and at times dropping to the ground for an insect. Then our eyes fell on a passing wet season migrant, the Ferruginous Flycatcher. Great little bird!...Peter Ericsson reports.

Thailand, Khao Yai 19-21/09/02

  • Martin Daniel, a British birder presently living in  Singapore and myself just visited Khao Yai National park for a couple of days.  This may be the most 'risky' time, weather wise, but though we saw little of the sun, we were spared any heavy downpours...Peter Ericsson reports.

A Taste and twitch of Thailand July 2002

  • Having a week in Thailand, I decided on 4 days in the Khao Yai National Park to have my first taste of Asian Bird watching.  Situated about 200km from Bangkok in the central north of Thailand.  Thailand has 16% of its total area under national parks and wildlife reserves.  Khao Yai covers 2200km square kilometres with much for the park at elevations of 600 to 1000 metres and covered by tropical broad-leaved evergreen forest...Glen Holland reports

Khao Yai 22-23/2/02

  • Leaving the extreme heat of Bangkok behind us, we started climbing the mountain in the early afternoon. A stop at the first lookout gave opportunity for my first try of the scope. A flock of Spangled Drongos with their shiny bluish wings were easy to focus on. A Golden-fronted Leafbird was a bit harder but we all got to see it. Meanwhile Hill Mynas flew over head....Peter Ericsson reports.

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.
