Birding trip report Cambodia and Thailand Feb. 2016

Cambodia is a great place for birders, and easy to combine with a visit to Thailand or Vietnam. Cambodia has several highly interesting habitats not or not easily found in other Asian countries.

Around a guided private birding tour to Cambodia Nollie and I added our own independent second birding trip to Thailand. The trip to Cambodia, organized by the Sam Veasna Center (, was from 17 to 25 Feb. 2016 and was excellently guided by Nara Duong [later he joined the Cambodia Bird Guide Association,]. Before that, from 12 to 17 Feb, we birded Pak Thale (the site for Spoon-billed Sandpiper and other special waders) and the now famous Kaeng Krachan NP. After the Cambodia trip we spent a week (until 3 March) in the cluster of hill forest national parks in central-north Thailand, plus at the end a day Khao Yai (a repeat visit from 2003).

In Cambodia, the first three days were spent at sites not too far from our base in Siem Reap, the pleasant and famous (for the temples) city near the huge lake Tonle Sap. The last four days were spent in the extensive woodlands in the central North of Cambodia, the area of the rare Giant and White-shouldered Ibises. It was a very pleasant trip across a high diversity of habitats.

For the Cambodia trip I had made a list of all our target species, based on the species lists for every site we would visit.

In Thailand we drove around in a rental car, and used the app for finding accommodation. Information for finding the bird sites was gathered mainly from the websites of Dave Sargeant (, Games ( and Nick Upton (, and from trip reports on (especially Barnagaud, Poelstra).

We also relied a lot on the app for finding our way, and before the trip I had added many waypoints in this app from important sightings etc. mentioned in the above trip reports and websites.

On the rare occasions that we could not communicate in some sort of English, we used the Google Translate app on the phone, to show in Thai what we meant and this was replied vice versa. A new and funny experience.

The weather was excellent all the time, we always felt at ease and we had no stomach or other health problems at all. I can really recommend a trip to Cambodia (preferably with Nara Duong) in combination with a trip to Thailand (or e.g. Vietnam).

Below, twenty maps give details about the birding sites in Thailand and how to get there. For Cambodia only one map is provided, as this was, and will probably be for nearly everybody, a guided trip. These waypoint maps are all screenshots from my app.

At the bottom of this page is the bird species list, with columns for the different sites. This is the main place in the report where species are mentioned. The remainder of the report is mainly meant to find your way and to get an idea of the habitats, based on the photos.

So, separately there are dozens of photos of the birding sites. Some more details about the sites are given there as well.

To be used on e.g. Google Earth, and in the field with e.g. the app.

Airport, car rental, Bangkok:
1. Suvarnambumi international airport
2. car rental area (see details on next map) (driving is on the left in Thailand)
3. keep right here
4. go left here for Bangkok 
5. go left here for road 9 to the west (Pak Thale and Kaeng Krachan)

How to find your way from the car rental area.
1. car rental offices and cars
2. drive around this block to 3.
3. take the fly-over to get to the other side of the road
4. drive slowly to choose the right way to 5: keep right!
5. drive slowly to find the road to Bangkok (big sign above the road)
6. when returning the car, simply turn left below the fly-over; note also that (if I remember well) you don't need to leave the highway at 5 now but can continue to the broad and more normal highway crossing a little further east. Just follow the signs to airport and then rental car return.

The wader areas near Pak Thale:
1. Petchaburi town (see separate map)
2. go left on the road that follows the coast up to Pak Thale
3. our hotel iTara, recommendable (see; hotels in this area are not as cheap as more inland)
4. viewpoint for Nordmann's Greenshank and Great Knot
5. Pak Thale, the best wader site (and Spoonbilled Sandpiper)

Where to go through Petchaburi:
1. coming along the highway from the north, take exit here onto service road
2. drive to the east from here (further see map above)

Situation at Pak Thale, the Spoon-billed Sandpiper site:
1. leave the coastal road here, at 13.150213 100.05358
2. park car here at broadest part of sandy track and not too close to the salt works
3. scan around all along this track for SBS and other waders.

How to reach Kaeng Krachan NP:
1. best leave main north-south highway here at 12.94197 99.903784
2. road to KK after some bends and bifurcations here
3. turn left for KK, unless you want to go along KK headquarters but for tickets this is not necessary anymore
4. keep twice right for KK short after each other
5. gate and ticket booth for KK NP.  See map below how to continue.

Kaeng Krachan NP, our main points of interest:
1. gate and ticket booth as on previous map; nice clearing and marsh directly after entering
2. forest clearing with Black-thighed Falconet
3. BanKrang camp and checkpoint; take your time here at the borders of this large half-open area; some food & drink sold here; at the gate, if you have a normal car, kindly ask if you may drive on to the first river crossing (this is normally allowed)
4. KK stream 1
5. KK stream 2
6. KK stream 3
Most birding in KK is done from points 3 to 6. If you have a 4WD then drive westward on to 12.8178 99.372 for a chance of seeing Rachet-tailed Treepie. We failed to find it but other birders saw it that day. We had rented a 4WD with driver for that second day KK but would probably not do that again and spend more time around points 3 to 6.
