Khao Yai #01

Come with me for a brief look at Khao Yai [Big Hill] National Park and World heritage site. Na and I have 4 kids with us for this trip, but we should be able to squeeze you all into the car with us.

 

I believe Khao Yai was Thailand's first National Park. It is about 2 hours by car from Bangkok, and so nearly halfway between Bangkok and our house.

Well this will be nice! I like the maker they have for this.
Ray: Come along, Elizabeth...bring Frank too, if you can find him...
the casual footwear reminds me of my boyhood, Ray - slip on some sandals and then head out for any destination, including hiking trips.
Ray: flip flops are the ultimate all-weather footwear in Asia, Ayush.
I am looking forward to the trip and will be as unobtrusive as possible...smile
Ray: You are welcome, Larry, and don't be concerned about making a noise and stuff...just don't steal all my cans of coffee...
Ce parc doit être magnifique pour faire partie du patrimoine mondial.
Ray: Il a beaucoup de forêt tropicale humide, et une flore et une faune uniques ... y compris les éléphants sauvages, les tigres sauvages, les singes, les calaos ...

You and Na are very kind, taking children out with you, and then including us, too.............
Ray: We do trips like this a few times each year, Lisl, and the trips seem to be enhanced by the presence of a bunch of kids.

I hope you enjoy the visit.

Righto - I'll squeeze into the boot if you like..

Orf we go then!
Ray: No boot in my car, Chris, so you might need to sit on someone's knee...choose carefully...
This is the kind of place the kids (big and small alike) will remember for a long time, Ray. Thanks for allowing us to come along for the ride.
Ray: I hope you enjoy the visit, Ginnie...I am delighted to have you join the expedition.
J'ai hate de decouvrir ce parc ..Merci d'avance
Ray: J'espère que vous apprécierez ce court voyage, Claudine.

Do they change the date on the stone every day? It certainly gives that impression. So how big is your Big Hill?
Ray: Every day there is a Date Cutter working on this stone, Alan, unless there is a wild tiger spotted in the vicinity.

How high is the Big Hill? The view might be wonderful. I like that you often have other children with you on your trips, I thought the boy on the left would be Marvin?
Ray: The tall boy is Mawin...he has grown enormously in the last 6 months, Philine, and is now taller than his Mum and Dad.

Khao Yai is not very tall, but is quite big, Philine.

We seem to enjoy trips like this when our car is filled with kids.
I'm ready for the off...don't walk too fast
Ray: We'll start in the car, Bill, so you have an opportunity to get your breath...later we will stroll at a gentle pace...unless we sight a wild tiger...

I’ll stand on the running board Ray. The World Heritage symbol is so well known. I wonder how many sites there are in the world. I suppose I could Bing it.
Ray: Ok...there are running boards on both sides, Chad, so take your pick.

The answer is 1073.
Reminds me of when my family was young. I had a niece every summer from when she was 5 till 18. Of course, she is like a daughter still.
Ray: Of the Kids...Mawin is our son, Prae is Mawin's cousin and lives with us, Plaeng is Mawin's cousin and lives in a nearby village but sleeps in our house about 2 nights each week, and Nong Wan is no relation at all, but sleeps in our house 1 or 2 nights each week....its a bit like we have 4 kids.
Great shot, I'm looking foprward to this trip. I see Mawin has one of those caps where the peak is on the back smile
Ray: Yes, Brian...backward caps are popular in Thailand, and they cost the same as forward-peaked ones. I hope you enjoy the trip.
Already looks fascinating - I'm looking forward to the trip.
Ray: Welcome aboard, Tom.
