Safari World of Bangkok: A Marvelous Mini World of Tourist Entertainment and Learning!

Thailand has emerged as one of the hot spots of tourism in the world with over 20 million people visiting that country every year. That is nearly 25% of that country's total population!
While some people may have some reservations about this country's tourism model on account of its broadminded approach in certain aspects of life that are still viewed as taboos in many other nations and societies, it still is a beautifully developed Asian nation. The Thais consider their land a golden land and literally it is gold decorated everywhere!

I shall be writing about the Thai culture, economy and its initiatives in progress and development later. 

Today I would like to share some videos and photographs that I took while visiting their open zoo cum amusement park that is named the Safari World. It is in Bangkok and it really gives some great amusement and learning for both adults and children. Incidentally, the Thai (Siamese) name of Bangkok is pretty long and it literally means: "City of angels, great city of immortals, magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Visvakarman at Indra's behest".

The Safari World visit would be an unforgettable thing for most tourists. The Thai authorities have made it so systematically arranged the whole attraction with excellent facilities and infrastructure that every one enjoy the miniature wild very much.

Pseudo environmentalists may openly denounce the animal shows. In India they do it any way and make such ridiculous laws that killed our circus shows with performing animals and let loose the dogs in the streets that make lives difficult for the people as well as the animals. 

But in Thailand, they do it with human wisdom. The synchronization and communication between certain higher brained animals and humans can be witnessed and appreciated here. It was a pleasure and wonder to observe the orangutans, the sea lions and the dolphins respond effortlessly to human language communication. Their wise laws provided some of them to go nearer to these animals and train them. Perhaps, such nearer interactions might provide them more and more opportunities to enhance human wisdom and move forward, instead of living in the stories of the past!
