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
The agents in Thailand provided probably the best arrangements Ive ever had. They paid close attention to small details for example a bottle of water for everyone each morning; hot/cold drinks at regular intervals; taking care of luggage, check-ins etc. Cannot praise them enough! Also the post-tour extension was well worth the money. Would recommend it to everyone going on this trip.
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.
The planning & organisation of this trip by the local staff was exemplary. They were friendly, helpful, and a joy to be with.
