Wildlife holidays in Thailand
The Kingdom of Thailand boasts a rapidly developing economy which has created huge changes to the way of life in this charming Buddhist country.
It is an independent country lying in the heart of South-east Asia with a tropical climate characterised by monsoons. The north of the country is mountainous, while the centre is mainly flat.
Theravada Buddhism is the national religion, and this is practiced by more than 94% of its population.
Our Thailand specialist recommends...
"I recommend our ‘Thailand’ 10-day birding tour, enjoying one of Thailand’s finest national parks, and the montane forests surrounding Chiang Mai. With time on the coast, we will also have the chance to search for the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper."Tom Mabbett
Whats special about the wildlife?
Thailand’s birdlife is particularly interesting. In the north there are forested mountain ranges which are a southern spur of the mighty Himalaya and this region is the principal focus of the Naturetrek birdwatching tour.
Naturetrek tour to Thailand
Naturetrek's 10-day bargain bird watching tour to Thailand explores the country’s best known national parks and montane forests. Our tour combines two excellent birdwatching locations which together offer the very best of Asian birding as well as some of the finest scenery in Thailand:
- The forests surrounding 2,590-metre high Mount Inthanon are full of interesting sub-Himalayan & South Asian bird species
- Khao Yai National Park is an immensely picturesque bird-rich area of forested hills & tumbling rock-strewn rivers
WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR Thailand HOLIDAYS
This was my first trip with Naturetrek, and I felt it was very good value for money. The organization was impressive, with no problems with travel arrangements. The quality of the hotels, food, minibuses and drivers was very high, and despite the fairly exhausting schedule, I thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip. The birdwatching was outstanding, with 260+ species seen, including the pre-tour extension. Kamol and his wife, Patcharee, were delightful people to spend a week with - nothing was too much trouble for them. Kamols extensive knowledge and experience of the birds, mammals and locations we visited were outstanding. There is no doubt that we could not have had anyone more qualified to be our leader in Thailand. He is exceptionally talented and was conscientious in helping us to see the birds and understand their features and behaviour.
I think that this is the best Naturetrek trip I have been on so far. As well as the excellent value for money, the overall quality of the accommodation and the standard of the meals was beyond praise. I found the guide completely approachable and honest and his organisation was superb. I will certainly give very serious consideration to doing this trip again in the near future. I had excellent opportunities for photography which is now my main interest and the company on the trip was very, very good.
The ground agents were superb, the meeting at the aiport, all transport and transfers went smoothly. The provision of a second minibus following us around to have drinks, snacks, lunches etc was very well organised and really helped the tour run smoothly.
