BangPu Recreation Center
Aug 2021 • Couples
Bangpoo Recreation Center It is one of Thailand's famous tourist attractions in the Gulf of Thailand. Good atmosphere, delicious seafood. For people in the city or people in the neighborhood To go on a relaxing day out by watching a flock of migratory gulls that can only be seen in one year in winter. Around November-April every year.

A very "gull-able" place!!
Nov 2020
The Bangpu Recreation Center is famous (especially among Thais) for observing the thousands of migratory birds (Mongolian and black-headed gulls in huge numbers) that congregate here from late October until March or April. Of course, the numbers are jacked up by the fact the people regularly feed the gulls. In late afternoon, the place becomes a wild circus, with hundreds, if not thousands, of visitors, especially on weekends and holiday-. Very popular for photographing the flocks of gulls that have become quite fearless of people. Can be a great place to watch the sunset. No entry fees.

Nice sunset
Apr 2019 • Family
Came here with Thai friends. They recommend the viewing was good. Lots of seagulls and a nice sunset as well. With the traffic here it's a bit of a trip from Bangkok which is around 38Km away.
I recommend you get the BTS down to Samrong, change to continue to Robinson shopping centre. It's a short taxi trip from there.

Fun Half Day

Fun place to enjoy the sea and views along the coast, explore the mangroves and brave the seagulls. Great for kids & well worth the drive out of Bangkok.

The Famous Local Spot To See Lots of Seagulls
Apr 2019 • Friends
I went to this location with a friend during the Songkran holiday and it was an ok trip. We went in the late afternoon so it wouldn't be quite as hot, although it being April, the temperatures were still very very warm.
The water will not be very clear here, although that is due to the environmental region that this coastline is in.

Walking along the jetty is fairly good as it least gives one a bit of a breeze and of course you will see the main attraction - the many many seagulls flying around the area which made for a lot of photo taking from the large amount of people who were there.
We didn't eat at any of the restaurants in the area (nor the one at the end of the jetty).

Either way, this made a nice short little trip was nice to get outside and do something different.

For getting here travelers can do 2 options:

1) Take the BTS Skytrain from Bangkok all the way to the end of the line, and to the last new station that was recently opened at the end of 2018 - the Keha station.
From there once getting off the train at Keha, one can catch a taxi to the Bang Pu Rec Center, and it will only be about a 15 minute drive.

2) Option 2 is similar to option 1 (at least for part of it).

For another choice you can take the BTS to Keha station only this time, instead of taking a taxi, you can take a songthaew (which is a pickup truck with seats in the back), and will have a big number '36' on the front of the truck above the windshield as it comes towards you. (The number 36 will also appear on the back of the truck as well for identification purposes).
Hop on that, and your journey will only cost you a mere 8 Baht for a one way trip!
So this option is bit cheaper if you'd like to save some Baht.

The only difference is, the taxi will take you right into the rec center while the songthaew will drop you off curbside on Sukhumvit, and you'll have to walk into the rec center (although it will only be about a 10 minute walk or less).

While I wouldn't overall rate the Bangpu Rec Center as a top place to visit, it certainly isn't bad if you want to do a short outing and are in the area, or just want to get out of BKK for a bit

enjoy bird feeding
Jan 2019 • Family
A nice place to see seagull and you will have a great experience by feeding them. Just throw a piece of crispy pork skin in the air they will show you the skill of perfect catcher. After that when you are tired, Let's full your stomach with great food in the restaurant at the end of the pier.

Pier is nice, avoidthe restraurant
Mar 2019 • Friends
Mangroves are also nice. The people whining here about the water being brown etc. should really go back to high school - this is a MANGROVE FOREST and by its nature it's brown and swampy. You can see some great birds here; the pier is nice and it has also birds, viz. ordinary seagulls, which doesn't exactly float my boat.

The restaurant I strongly advise against: Overpriced by more than 100% compared to Bangkok (not the tourist traps but decent mall restaurants say); very low quality and bad taste (the squid was inedible); lousy service *and* I was tricked out of 100 THB change. In a quite dexterous way so that I regard it as the price for a learning experience, but really! It's a lovely place physically though, especially the outside wings. Still, don't eat here.

Great getaway from the hustle bustle of the city
Jul 2018 • Friends
Approximately 48 mins from sukumvit, this is a nice hangout to get fresh ocean air and lots of fresh fish. The waters are muddy though due to which a lot of green trees grow well here. They have a nice jungle plank walk which leads into the forest flanked by the ocean backwaters. It’s a good place to walk and chill out.
