First Location

Species found there are Irrawaddy and Humpback Dolphins. Other interesting activities are watching birds of over 50 species and studying local fishermen’s way of life in their biggest snapper farm.

Second Location

Bang Pa In Seaside Resort Bang Pa In Seaside Resort, located in Bang Pu Mai District, Muang County, Samut Prakan Province, is a significant bird-watching place near to Bangkok. It has many kinds of bird there but the one that brings reputation to Bang Pa In is the seagull.
