Shame the place was closed for repairs. I had visited this place once earlier and it is a very good and calm path through the mangroves. Especially during sunset. It has it's own charm

The Center of ecotourism is in a very poor condition. The surroundings are packed with rubbish and the walkway is closed.
We were disappointed and hope that this place gets fixed, so it can shine again.

After visiting other attractions around we decided to visit this one but it is closed due to the need for renovations in the place. No renovation is planned for the moment so please inform before going to the place.

This mangrove forrest is a pleasure to visit. Even though the wooden walkways might be a little old and in need of repair, you can have a great walk here. I recommend taking your time and look for the birds. I have seen many species including kingfishers. I also saw the big bats (with the red throat). I heard someone referred to the as flying dog. They hang around in the treetops in the western part of the walkway. You can walk through the forrest to get a sea view. For a different experience - this is the place to go

Hidden place in Cholburi where you can walk around wooden walkways throughout the mangrove forests. Official name of this place is "Center of Expertise on Eco-tourism for Mangrove Conservation". Perfect time to be there is about after 4pm until 6.30pm. (Leave there before 7pm as there is no lighting, no security guard). ศูนย์ศึกษาธรรมชาติและอนุรักษ์ป่าชายเลนชลบุรี เดินออกกำลังกายพร้อมศึกษาชื่นชมธรรมชาติ ตอนพระอาทิตย์ตกสวยมาก ควรไปช่วงบ่ายแก่ๆแดดร่มลมตก ทางเดินเปลี่ยวนิดนึงควรรีบเดินออกมาก่อนมืด ทางเดินไม่มีไฟส่องสว่างไม่มียาม ไม่ควรวิ่งหรือกระโดดที่ทางเดินเพราะไม้เริ่มผุ

What a fantastic little oasis to spend a couple of hours in relative solitude. Like many sites around Chon Buri city there are no signs in English, but you don’t need them and can enjoy a leisurely 1.5 or 2 hour walk out amongst the mangroves on a raised wooden walkway and view different species of mudskippers (walking fish), birds, bats, crabs and large lizards. When you work out what you are looking for you realise that the mangroves are teaming with life and my wife and I were transfixed by the antics of the walking fish and the crabs, in particular.

Make sure that you go at low tide and you will need to get there by taxi or car as it isn’t on any of the regular transport routes. A must see if you are in, or passing through, Chon Buri.

This facility is free to everyone. It has a the longest pathway in the mangrove forest, about 2.3 km. The beginning of the pathway had no shade and you may need an umbrella or a hat and a pair of sunglasses if you visit the place during the day. I would recommend to walk until you reach the open sea where you will get a good breeze. The very small rope bridge should make your heart beating. Looking for a mudskipper among the mangrove trees in the water and you may see how huge it was.

I'd never seen a mangrove forest / swamp before, so it was interesting. The area has a 2 kilometer elevated walkway, so you get a good view of a muddy and somewhat diverse natural area without being down in it. The mudskippers were the most interesting part to me, fish that could walk around on their fins, adapted to the area having water part of the time due to the tides. Of course the mangrove trees themselves being adapted to salt water is also unique, just harder to appreciate by sight. Other than mud, mangrove trees, mudskippers, and crabs there were only fruit bats to see, and a view of the gulf along one side. One downside was lots of planks missing; hard for that to not make you nervous, since some were in bad shape too, and in some places it took a long step to get past several missing. I still liked it but it made for an uneasier experience, that image of risk of falling through. My mother-in-law was with us, and she's 71, so it's not as if someone a bit older still couldn't do it. There were no insects; apparently they have trouble adapting to the salt.

This is near the place we live. The ambiance is good. But it is recommended to visit during high tide. There is an elevated wooden platform to walk around and is a good to have a afternoon walk (but to be careful of some broken planks)

I love this place and live nearby. It untouched (mostly) mangrove forest. It is boardwalk thru the forest out to the water.
Low tide is the best time to see the real walk out of water Mangrove Mud Skipper fish.
The circles in the mud are nests and seasonal. They are up to about 8 inchesThe fish do very well out of water walking around. In breeding season the males will fight especially on the water side. Low tide time for Bangkok or Koh Si Chang are close times.

About 1/2 hour after sunset an endless column of fruit bats head out for the night. The stream of bats is endless as you will not able to see the end, too many bats and they keep coming and coming and more bats.! The main stream goes South and others West. During the day the bats roost in the trees, left trail from entrance.

The guy by the entrance, with the ice cream always gives a "big scoop" cone for 10bt and ice cream sandwiches made on the spot.
You can't get lost if you just keep going in one direction on the boardwalk. The trails all loop back to the entrance. Some boards can be missing. You could do this in a wheelchair with 3 steps at the start.
This is a very nice local attraction and just south of Chonburi City. If you are in the area and want some nature. Halfway between Bangkok-- Pattaya
