Ban Khun Samut Chin ( phonetics sometimes alos Jiin ) is a small fisherman village located on a mangrove peninsula. It can only be reached bu boat taxi. The village is constantly fighting erosion.
Once the boat taxi drops you off ate wooden pier, you need to march 500 meters straight to the village center. ( I guess around 100 inhabutants ) In the village you will find a small, slightly messy but highly interesting musuem, with a lot of old Thai and Chinese ceramic artifacts. ( Samut chin was originally founded by Chinese traders. ) The musuem has not fixed opening hours, but the mayor living next to it will be happy to open it for you.
From the museum it is another kilometer by foot the Wat Khun Samut. On the way to the temple through the mangrove forest you will see local Fauna as walking fisch, one clawed crabs, birds, monitor lizards and flora typical for this area.
The temple Wat Khun Samut is located below sea level, protected by recently erected flood walls. it is located in the middle of a beautiful scenery of sea and mangroves.
