This place is one of the most interesting nature parks of Thailand and well worth a visit. From January until the end of March the lotus blossom is fantastic. A trip on the lake with a small boat takes about 2 hours and you should start early in the morning, as the lotus will close the flowers in the afternoon.... More

Thale Noi has just taken my breath away. As a nature photographer, feasting my eyes on large purple lotus flowers as far as the eye could see peppered with terns, egrets and batman-winged cormorants, offered a spectacular visual feast. To see the lotus flowers at their best visit early morning or evening before the baking sun closes the petals. Combine... More

For nature lovers this is one place that is well worth visiting. About an hour from Hat Yai airport Thale Noi lake is a large body of both sea and fresh water. Water lilies and lotuses bloom on a large part of it and an early morning (6.00 am) long boat ride reveals the sheer size and beauty of this... More

We stayed here for a night in December of 2014. This is basically a large, freshwater lake which for the most part is unspoiled, with lots of wetland marshes and fauna of all kinds. We stayed at the Wetlands Camp resort, which is composed of only 4 huts and a small restaurant/management area. We very much liked the resort (comfortable... More

If you like the birds, not the night birds, but real birds, well then this is teh place to go. A tour with one of the many long tail boats bring you around and some amazing scenery is to be seen.

Arrived at the lake in August 2012. It wasn't impressive when I arrived late afternoon and was given a feast of fresh fish roe cake bought at the stalls that lined the road just by the lake. The place looked run down but this should not deter anyone from experienceing its real gist in the lake. I went back there... More

Located about 120 kms from Songkhla in Phattalung Province, this bird sanctuary is a nice visit for a change of pace! Don't expect too much. There are some nice elevated walkways through the low swampy lake and around the small village. Boats can be hired at a low fixed price. Bird watchers are mostly on their own since the guides...
