We almost missed these bird. first we couldn't find the bird but when I was chasing the Yellow chit Tit I came across 2 of them, later we setup our hide but the bird didn't appear. so we give up and was packing. Than I walk to a house to wash my hand. there I saw the bird again. Luckily it give us last min view. Smile

How much is the usual guide cost against how much with driver only? I heard from friends that Thai guide charge about RM350 per day per head (discounted price). Is that reasonable?

That's very reasonable. Better than going on tour to China sight seeing and bring nothing back. Thanks.
