    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Thanks YuShan. Great report and amazing photos. My itinerary will be similar to yours as I start in Bangkok and travel to Chiang Mai and Do Inthanon, then briefly down to the Phuket area. I will have to try to get to Sri Phang Nga NP while there. We are staying at Khao Lak so it looks about...

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    We both had the confirmed virus quite badly for about 3 weeks March/April so are less concerned about catching it now. My wife has confirmed antibodies, I've not been tested but should have. We have a promise we can put back a year if we want as the deadline approaches so we will see the...

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Well I've booked up the first 2 weeks of Dec and am crossing my fingers that 1/ It will be ok to fly there AND BACK, 2/restaurants and tourist sites will be open in Bangkok 3/N Parks will be open and guides available ! If it doesn't look great a few weeks before we can defer to next year. Tony

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Can anyone recommend a good hotel to stay at near Khai Yai ? All the hotels suggested by our agent and on trip advisor look very sterile, carefully manicured, and artificial. None seem to have decent gardens or wild countryside next door that i can wander around with camera and binoculars.

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Thanks Graeme. Given it can't be a full-on birdwatching visit I think Khao Yai will have to be the destination.

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Thanks for all the further info Ben. If it was just me travelling and going purely for birds i would visit both sites and drop the 3 days we have at a beach resort (Khao Lak where i plan a quick visit to Laem Pakarang). However I don't think my wife would cope with 3 days at KK so I think Khao...

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Yes we would be looking to do some night safaris too but with a guide who would hopefully keep us out of trouble.

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Thanks yes, we would deliberately avoid the weekend. Is it ok during the working week or quite busy then too ?

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Thanks - we would probably stay outside the Park and arrive as soon as the gates open in the morning. We would hire a guide to maximise the limited time we would have there.

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Yes I'd also read good things about Baan Maka on this forum and having checked Tripadvisor. We are probably leaning towards Khao Yai at present though. It's more than just a birding holiday and wildlife generally and scenery are apparently better at KY. Tony

    Keang Krachan NP or Khao Yai NP in early Dec

    Hi We have 3 night and 2 full days (not enough I know :-)) to visit one of these parks during a 16 day tour of Thailand. With a guide booked for the 2 days, which park would be the best to go to for bird and wildlife sightings ? And can you recommend a good wildlife focused lodge or hotel to...
