My wife and I just completed in November 2005 a three week trip to Thailand. We visited Petburi (the salt pans) for shorebirds, Bangra (grasslands), Khao Yai Park, and Doi Ithanon Park. Our host, Peter Ericsson an excellent birder and photographer, was instrumental in my success at capturing many of Thailandís abundant birds. Peter and his wife Debra run the Central Thailand Mission and he may be available on a limited basis to show people around. You can contact Peter through his Pbase site. http://www.pbase.com/peterericsson/profile

Thailand was our first trip to Southeast Asia. We thought we knew what to expect from guidebooks and from friends who had been there but our expectations were exceeded. The people of Thailand are friendly, the food is safe, spicy, the accommodations are clean, and the traffic is worse than described (please donít drive unless you have experience). We were not required to have special shots or take malaria pills (though we both did get hepatitis and tetanus shots).
We hope to someday go back and encourage others to go visit this wonderful country. Enjoy the gallery!
