A Disappointing Day in Phukhieo Wildlife Sanctuary

I had a feeling that my trip to Phukhieo Wildlife Sanctuary will not satisfy my expectations. The second (and last) day in Phukhieo proved just that. I traveled for 10 hours just to be disappointed.

I woke up early that day to do some bird watching. Our group is ready and many brought their cameras so as to capture some rare birds in photo. Our guide, meanwhile, had his weapon: the telescope.

The road is still foggy when we started our journey.

Walking in the middle of the forest is indeed refreshing. The air is fresh and the weather is cool. Too bad that my intention here is not walk but to see some birds.

Sadly, what we only saw are just bulbuls and grass.

Yep, this is grass. The birds are hiding.


Where are the birds? I  don't know if they're hiding or they just hate our group. Maybe the birds were in the other parts of the wildlife sanctuary.

A deer in Phukhieo Wildlife Sanctuary


A deer showed up to steal the show from the birds. I wonder what this deer tastes like.

Our guide brought us to the top f a hill. I was surprised to see a beautiful house in the middle of the forest.

This house was made for the Queen of Thailand. I'm not sure if the royal family already visited Phukhieo. Maybe the park authorities built it just in case the king, the queen or any of the princes or princesses showed up.

The Queen's Palace is not the only house in the area. Located at the back are houses and rooms made for the officers and servants that accompany the Thai royal family in their travels.

I had the feeling that my time was wasted that morning because the birds hid from us. Frankly, I've seen more birds in Bangkok than in this wildlife sanctuary.

    1. Hindi ako nakapasok Bluedreamer. Hindi kasi ako miyembro ng Royal Family kaya hindi pwede. Hindi lang nila alam na isa rin akong hari. Hari ng Sablay.

      Tumili? As in? Parang pang-babae ang tili eh.

  7. Hi, this blog was introduced to me by fiel kun. Try to visit Trang, there is a water area where you get to ride a boat and see birds all around you in their natural habitat.

    1. Hello Jonathan. Thank you for visiting and for your suggestion. Unfortunately I only have less than two weeks here in Thailand. Maybe next time when I come back here I'll be able to visit Trang.

  8. Eyew!!! You saw that innocent harmless looking deer and you started wondering what it tasted like. LOL!!! Venison tastes something like beef - nothing really special, I would think. Love that house! So quaint!
