Mangrove boat trip

Worth doing

What we say: 4 stars

You wouldn't know it, but right behind the guesthouses that line the off-beach side of the road, lays a very pretty mangrove-lined river.

While the mangroves here are not nearly as impressive (nor as expansive) as those at Langkawi, the mangroves at Cherating are worth experiencing. Payung Guesthouse is the most popular backpacker operator that runs these trips with both daytime and evening firefly spotting trips available. It is also possible to hire a kayak and go check them out yourself if you prefer.

Both the evening cruise and day cruise along the mangroves costs 20 ringgit per person while if you want to do it by kayak it will cost 30 ringgit per kayak.
