Zoo in Bangkok
A favorite place for walks for parents with children in the capital of Thailand is located in the Dusit district near the parliament building in Khao Din Park. The history of the Bangkok Zoo goes back over a hundred years - it was founded by King Rama V as a private garden adjacent to the palace..
In the beginning it was called "Khao Dinh Wang", which meant "forest on the mountain". In 1983, after the reconstruction, the park was reopened to the public and received the official name "Dusit Zoo".
More than one and a half thousand guests of the park demonstrate the diverse fauna of not only Southeast Asia, but also neighboring regions. More than eight hundred birds live here alone, and also three hundred mammals and almost two hundred reptiles..
