Attraction Details :

A favourite stop for tourists to Samut Songkhram is the pristine sandbar at the mouth of the Mae Klong River: Don Hoi Lot, named for the abundant indigenous “Hoi Lot” or razor clams. The 3-kilometer-by-5-kilometer stretch spans two zones: Don Nok lies at the mouth of Ao Mae Klong, accessible by boat, and Don Nai is located on the beach of the Chuchi village in Tambon Bang Chakreng and on the beach of the Bang Bo village in Tambon Bang Kaeo, accessible by car.

A nearby shrine offers live music in the late afternoons on the first and third weeks of the month, and neighboring restaurants offer a delicious range of fresh and dried seafood for souvenirs. Be sure to take advantage of the lingering low tides between March and May and hire a boat from the nearby Aphon Pavilion for a scenic tour.

Getting there by car:

1. To get to the Bang Bo village in Tambon Bang Kaeo: Take the Thon Buri–Pak Tho Road (Rama II Road), and follow the sign on the left before Km 62 to Don Hoi Lot for around 7 km.

2. To get to the Chuchi Village in Tambon Bang Chakreng: Take the Thon Buri–Pak Tho Road (Rama II Road), and at the foot of the Phra Phutthaloetla Naphalai Bridge or around Km 64, follow the sign to Don Hoi Lot for approximately 5 kilometers.

Alternatively, buses depart all day from the market in Amphoe Mueang Samut Songkhram to Don Hoi Lot in Chuchi village. A variety of boats are also available from the pier on the Mae Klong River to Don Nok. For a group of 60-250 people, contact Khun Phonthip Saengwanit at the Sun Huat Heng Sawmill in advance by calling 0 3471 1466, 0 3471 2558, 0 3471 2451, or 08 1378 5858, or fax 0 3471 4240.
