Tortoises in Dusit Zoo, Bangkok Thailand

Thailand is one of my favorite countries in Southeast Asia! And of course, we wouldn't miss going to the zoo. Dusit Zoo (Thai: สวนสัตว์ดุสิต) is located at Khao Din Park in Bangkok's Dusit District next to the Parliament House and Dusit Palace. They say it is the oldest zoo of Thailand. It was built by King Chulalongkorn as his private garden adjacent to the royal palace. It's my dream to have a private garden just like this. Even the tortoise section is enough for me!

We also went to a friend's "Home Zoo" in Bangkok, Thailand. This is a different place from Dusit Zoo. I've included a few photos as well.
