Mangrove Forrest along the sea in Chonburi city

Traveling in Thailand

In 2016 we were driving along the sea-side of Chonburi city and we came along a sign of a "Mangrove Forrest" so we stopped and had a look and a little walk. It is a 300-rai mangrove Forrest along the sea with a 2300-meter long wooden walking path thru it. Well this is Thailand and maintenance is not top priority here so be careful when walking this wooden walking path because once and while there are some missing pieces of wood. When walking you see that all the little crab's can feel you coming and they hide & cover in the mud. It was low tide and the "fish" was crawling over the mud from one little water-pound to the other. And even deep in the forrest there were big birds eating (fish?) and even flying between the trees. Amazing to see this small eco-system of nature here in this industrial area of Chonburi city. Of course there was much more mangrove forrest along the coast of Thailand but most is gone and I am afraid someday this mangrove forrest in Chonburi will also be cleared for construction.

Traveling in Thailand


One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
