Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia are becoming increasingly popular with all kinds of visitors, not least birdwatchers who can visit many national parks and reserves harbouring a bounty of amazing species. The three countries are home to about 1,000 species of birds including such rarities as Bengal Florican, Giant Ibis, Green Peafowl and Vietnamese Cutia. This concise and easy-to-use guide features 252 of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia's most interesting and spectacular birds, each illustrated in fullcolour with key information on ID, habitat and distribution.
Illustrated with clear colour photography and brief but authoritative descriptions the Pocket Photo Guides highlight the species of birds and animals from each region that the traveller is most likely to see, as well as those that are genuinely endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allow the books to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
