Our pick of the khlong-side spots
Mangrove is one of the better "over the river mangrove" type joints along Khlong Chao and while the mosquitos come free (and, according to staff, there are quite a few) this place could appeal to those looking for a riverside retreat.
The setting is just before a bend on the river, the far bank is all mangroves, and bungalows are either directly overlooking the river or a row back. Over the river are a few salas with hammocks. The bungalows are spacious and the fan and air-con are identical (if you pay for air-con you get given the remote). Bathrooms are clean and all bungalows have deck settings. There is also a good-sized restaurant by the river. Our only gripe (aside from the mozzies) is that this place is right by the road to the waterfall so there will be a bit of traffic noise during the day. If this is too expensive, Cozy Corner is right next door and almost half the price, with a more backpacker-ish vibe.
