Wildlife In ThailandHello everybody!
I'll be travelling for a month around Thailand and want to see animals in their natural environment. I don't want to see the Tiger Kingdom or other places where they mistreat elephants, but would love to find some national parks with them.
Are there still any in Thailand?

You might see the odd stray elephant in Khao Yai NP
Also Kaeng Krachan and Khao Sok NP good for wildlife spotting.
Chance of seeing a tiger in the wild nearly zero.

2Usually pretty good wildlife viewing in Khao Yai if you take a night time tour where you ride in the back of a truck that takes a circuit through the park where many animals come to feed at night. Rainy season may seem rather uncomfortable but the animals are pretty active this time of year.

3Yes, there's a fair chance of seeing wild elephants at both Khao Yai and Kaeng Krachan national parks. I've seen them at the latter, but not at Khao Yai although plenty of people do.
Mountains and forests in the north tend to be rather bereft of mammals (due to hunting). There are, however, plenty of birds to be seen there.

5You can see some good size terrapins and water monitor lizards basking on the bank or in the moat of the Chitralada Royal Palace and Gardens up in the Dusit area of Bangkok.
