Baan Pho

Posted by Thaiman on 12/12/2009 at 11:43

On our last trip to Thailand we visited Baan Pho,not far from Samut Prakan.This area is a large area of Mangroves and is particuarlly important to migatory seabirds.We spent 1 night there in the accomadation available on the site.It cost 400B and was probably worth 50.Terrible.The bird life was pretty interesting though but we were told that November-March is the best time.Another downside to the place is that the Mangroves have acted like a big seive and the mud flats and shore line were just covered in rubbish.Depressing really. If anyone wanted to visit I'd suggest a day trip by taxi from BKK.Easy to catch one back as they seemed to run fairly regularly along the main road outside the site.
