Area 1: Northern Thailand
 Introduction
  Bird Watching Trips:
If you need help organizing a bird watching trip to Thailand, take a look at the suggested itineraries for ideas on creating a tailor-made trip and contact me for advice: Thailand bird tours.
Northern Thailand is the best area to visit for montane species. Much of the region is above 1000m, with a few peaks rising above 2000 metres. In the "winter" months this is a great area to look for a variety of the scarcer migrant species. Other specialities of the region are Giant Nuthatch, Black-tailed Crake, Hume's Pheasant and Jerdon's Bushchat to mention just a few.

Most of these sites are accessible from Chiang Mai, making this city the perfect base for north Thailand birding. Visiting a variety of upland and lowland sites will allow birders to see a wide variety of species and at least one of the "Dois" is a must for any birder visiting this region.
