The south is characterised by agriculture, oil palm and rubber planations. Some lowland habitat is preserved, but much is under increasing threat. The far south shares an avifauna typical of the Sundas, and is the only place in Thailand where a fair number of southern specialities can be found. Some important forests are found dotted along the length of the Thai peninsula. Large areas of mangrove can still be found. Offshore are some important coral islands.
The list of important birding sites of this region covers lowland and mid elevation forests, mangrove, and offshore islands.
