Walking at the mangroves Kung Krabaen in Chanthaburi province

Traveling in Thailand
Mangrove forrest at Kung Krabaen in Chanthaburi, Thailand

At the most northern point of Hat Chaolao in Chanthaburi province is a mangrove forrest park and it is part of Kung Krabaen Bay Development Center. From the main road is a small road with a sign and at the end of that road is after 300m a parking. From there you can start walking a elevated wooden trail of 1.5 km thru the mangrove forrest. At the moment (February 2019) it was all brand new. Mind you it is not wheelchair friendly as there are 2 bridges to cross and a few up & down steps. And there are signs of explanations ... in Thai language. But entrance is free. Best to do in the early morning, it opens at 8:00 and closes at 17:00. The trail ends more or less where you did begin and that is where you will also find good clean toilets and some food-stalls selling food & drinks. Following are some photos I did make while walking the walk. For more information see A Guide to the Coastline of Chanthaburi.

It all began 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!
