Chainat Bird Park, Thailand- A Photo Essay...!!


Chainat Bird park in Chainat province of Thailand is one of the largest bird sanctuaries in Asia. Numerous exquisite species of birds in various feather colours and beak sizes makes this bird park a much sought after tourist destination. Situated at a distance of almost 200 Kms from Bangkok, the park with natural pools, a waterfall and garden areas gives the birds an environment almost similar to that of a natural one. The park has a giant bird cage which helps all the birds to live freely together in a natural setting. This happens to be the biggest attraction of the bird park. Unfortunately, the cage was under renovation when I visited. However, Chainat bird park also has birds that are caged in smaller ones along with a few species like flamingos, peacocks and storks which happily laze around the park. There is a main big pond where visitors are allowed to feed the fishes in it. The other attractions include an interesting egg museum and an exhaustive aquarium which boasts of some exotic and gigantic fishes.


























P.S.- I was riding across northern Thailand with Ride Thailand on an invite from Tourism Authority of Thailand.

  7. I have always resented going to the zoos in India. Animals and birds are treated so badly here. The only zoo in India where I found that animals and birds were so well kept was the Mysore zoo. This is what I like about other countries. They really know how to take care of the other species. This is an interesting place and the birds look all groomed. Thanks for the tour.

    1. Me too not a big enthusiast of zoos. As you said, Mysore zoo is quite well kept. This was more of a bird park than a zoo.

  9. I have never visited Chainat Bird Park. It seems to be very interesting and attractive. The pictures you have captured are outstanding. Last month I went to Thailand for my business deal but unfortunately I could not visit its all attractive places just because of the shortage of time. Now I must plan with my friends to visit Chainat province after coming back from bus to washington dc tour. I am sure will visit this park soon.
