Dusit Zoo

Mot, Bobo and I took a trip to the main zoo in Bangkok on the weekend, Dusit Zoo. Its not a big zoo, and there aren't many star attractions compared to some other international zoos (San Diego Zoo comes to my mind), but it is quite nice. There is a good range of animals: the big cats, giraffes and elephants, kangaroos, snakes, birds, and so on. Perhaps the best thing about the zoo is the relaxing atmosphere. We arrived about 11am and there was plenty of people about, although not crowded. Most people hired or brought an outdoor mat and spent the day lazing around, eating picnic food, and occasionally looking at the exhibits. It certainly is a nice place to spend a relaxing day with family and friends. Entry price was 50 Baht (I think 100 Baht for foreigners not living in Thailand). Check out the photo gallery. Its my first with the new camera - as you will see, I still need a lot of practice! After the zoo, we went into the Siam Square for dinner at the popular Thai Restaurant, Som Tam Nua, for some delicious Isaan food.
