Bird watching in Khao Lak

We are staying at the Sensimar Hotel from 20/11 for 8 nights. Are there any day bird watching trips in the national park there, or nearby?

The Sensimar is located at the northern end of Sunset Beach at the bottom of the highway dropping down from its highest point where the entrance to and Information office for the Khao Lak Lamru is located. You may get information there. Rather than walking up the walkway you can go left along the beach until you reach steps at the end up from the beach to the Muan Lai Restaurant on the Highway (Isan cuisine and best view of the northern coastline of Khao Lak). The NP entrance is just up to the right past the entrance to Baan Krating Resort. There is more wildlife, though, up in Khao Sok National Park, an hour north from Khao Lak, and in particular on Cheow Lan Lake, an hour east from there. Contact Green Andaman Tours at http://www.greenandamantravel.com/ or Khao Lak Land Discovery at www.khaolaklanddiscovery.com/eng/index.php… or Eco Khao Lak at http://ecokhaolak.com/ for information as they specialise in more nature oriented tours.

You may also be interested in a trip up to Koh Kho Khao. On the island you will find a birdwatching tower and abundant wildlife generally. I was there once and was mesmerised by the kingfishers which would perch on the overhead wires at the side of the road before swooping down into the nearby pond or waterway. I commented at the time that it would be an ideal location for birdwatching tours. You could arrange your own tour there by using a driver and car for the day, from either a taxi firm or a tour operator which specialises in individual tours.
