A stroll into the sea

 

The picturesque pilgrimage on a wooden boardwalk to an old pagoda of Ban Hua Laem is an emerging attraction of Chanthaburi.

Built by contribution from the locals, the wooden boardwalk stretches for about a hundred yards from the coast, paving the way through small scattering pinnacles to an old pagoda situated a stone’s throw away on an islet.

During the low tide, the pagoda will be accessible.

Signified the locals’ strong faith in Buddhism, the 200-year-old pagoda is the spiritual center of its local fishermen. They make wishes for safe trips home as well as aboard the fertile sea. With an effective natural conservation policy, the bay of Kung Kraben is home to abundant marine life.

Definitely, the boardwalk offers an impressive seascape. People always flock here for the romantic sunrise and sunset views, as well as panoramic seascape. The refreshing sea breeze reliefs the day's heat and makes it a nice place to chill out.

With an impressive sea view, the famous bay of Kung Kraben is an easy weekend destination for all. Its beautiful beach road leads to various attractions such as the viewpoints of Noen Phaya, Chao Lao Beach, Kung Viman Beach, and Kung Kraben Aquarium.

Kung Kraben Mangrove Forest Study Walkway has remained one of the province’s most popular green spaces. The walkway stretches over 1.6 kilometers and is lined with brilliant greeneries. Established in 1981 with the purpose of restoration and preservation of the region's natural mangroves, the study center today becomes a famous eco-tourism destination worthwhile your visit.

 

How to get there: Chanthaburi Province is 155 miles east of Bangkok via highway 344 and 3.
