A steep drop in the temperature is refreshing for more than just Thailand’s human inhabitants – wildlife perks up too and the Kingdom becomes a winter rendezvous point for hundreds of species of migratory birds

Veteran wildlife photographer Artid Nima recommends Mae Wong National Park as a great place to observe the birds and other animals in their full glory at this time of year.

Straddling Mae Wong and Mae Poen districts in Nakhon Sawan and Pang Sila Thong district in Kamphaeng Phet, it became Thailand’s 55th national park in September 1987.

The park has a large area to accommodate campers as well as nature trails and offers activities such as rafting, cycling and guided bird watching.
