Despite being really tired afterwards, it was unanimously agreed that our residential trip to Khao Kheow Open Zoo was fantastic!
On our first day we were introduced to our guides and learnt about the history of the zoo and its conservation effort. Afterwards was a whirlwind tour of the animals in the park, with highlights including, feeding the giraffes, the bird parade and visiting Lemur Island.
After an evening of fun games and activities, we slept in exciting bunk bed dormitories with our friends. We were so tired, nearly everyone was asleep before 9:30pm! For most of us, this was the first time we have stayed away from home, but we handled it maturely and really, what better place to spend the night than in the zoo with all the other monkeys!?
On the second and final day, we went on a nature trail, up the hill in the jungle, and learnt about the uses of different native plants. Following that we went to the 'sustainability village' and discovered how to make soap with natural products.
What a trip it was! Take a look at some of the select shots below and see the entire album by clicking here. It is an open album, so if anyone who took a camera along would like to upload their on pictures, that would be great! Also, Year 3 children, please add some comments about your favourite parts of the trip...
Special thanks to Khun Orathai and Khun Su for all their help and hard work on the trip!
