WITH the sights of Koh Chang i'm finally done now turn to hua hin :) Probably, this is a problem for all bloggers, when there is more material than time to write it. I have posts for another year ahead ...

Hua Hin is a great place for wintering and recreation.at all. There is less modest nature and beaches are simpler than on the islands, but calmly, especially in the suburbs, there are no bags, and getting here is easier than simple from Bangkok. And there is something for the inexperienced tourist to see, for example, Pranburi Forest Park and its mangroves.

Pranburi Forest Park coastal area

The park is conditionally divided into two parts: coastal zone and mangrove forest. Usually everyone writes only about mangroves, although the second half is worthy of attention. Yes, there is nothing special to watch there, but it is great for a picnic, there are tables with benches for this, where you can sit in the silence and forest shade with family. For some reason I immediately remembered resting places savage on the Black Sea surrounded by pizundsky pines. Only here is much calmer.

By the way, with a tent if you wish, you can and hereget up because there is camping. However, it is not known when they were last used, the washbasins near the site were long disconnected from the plumbing. But nothing on the territory is a toilet, where the idea should also be water. Well, there are houses for 6 people at a price of 2,000 baht per day.

A beach along the park is called Pran Kiri.Beach and it is about a kilometer long. It is rather small here, and apparently that is why the locals wade into artificial islands in bulk in order to entertain themselves at least somehow. Although maybe they pick something edible there.

Pranburi Forest Park Mangroves

I've seen mangroves before, but I met themTake a closer look at Hua Hin. I liked the idea of ​​the park very much, take and lay wooden platforms through the mangrove forest, within which you simply cannot find yourself. Thanks to these wooden paths you can climb into the very wilds that look mysterious and fabulous. The route is circular, first go on one track, and you can return on the other. A part of the plants was signed, information boards were placed along the way with the description of the flora and fauna of this place. The walk takes about half an hour.

If you look closely, then down in the water among the rootsYou can see blue crabs, muddy jumpers, lobsters and other representatives. I was not lucky, and I saw only the most ordinary crabs, whom I did not take pictures of. I also read the information that somewhere there is an island inhabited by monkeys, where you can just take a boat along the Pranaburi River.

How to get to Pranburi Forest Park

Pranaburi Park is located 20 kilometers south ofHua Hin, and the easiest way to get there on a bike. The road to the end of the road becomes quite beautiful and not crowded, so it is even pleasant to drive. The route can include a visit on the road. Temple Mount Khao Tao and Sai Noi Beach.

The park is open from 6.00 to 18.00, but somehow he is not particularly guarded, that is, you can come at any time. The truth at the entrance to the mangroves is that it is allowed to visit only until 18.00, it is possible that the mangroves do not swallow visitors into their bowels or some large crab, going hunting at night, would not have a snack in half. In any case, I wandered in the mangroves before darkness and I can say that it is not very pleasant to be there in the twilight.

The entrance is free.
