Deserted and neglected.
Apr 2021 • Couples
I'm not sure what has happened unless Covid is the reason for a deserted but very interesting place to visit. There was no one in sight! Everything, except the toilets,was closed and it looked as if the whole area had been abandoned.
There is a concrete walkway through the mangroves which is certainly worth the effort in the heat. There were assorted long tail boats but no sign of life! Along the walkway, were placed what had been information boards but any information had long since disappeared. We assumed that the walkway was circular but at one point, it had collapsed so we had to retrace our steps.
It was certainly quiet with no other visitors. We had an occasional glimpse of some monkeys and there was some interesting bird life.
I'm not sure if there is an admission charge but as no one was there, it turned out to be a free trip!
Probably worth visiting but would be so much better if maintenance was improved and the boat trips were available.

Interesting walk
Dec 2020 • Couples
The walkway around the mangroves is about 0.8km. Interesting to see the boats and kayaks on the river or estuary. Did not try kayaking as we arrived late and stores were shut. Plenty of monkeys on the path.

Great kayak on the river
Dec 2019 • Couples
We hired a motorbike and got a motorboat from the park for 1hr for two persons at 1000 batt total .We enjoyed the trip so much we returned a few days later around 3pm and hired a two person kayak ( 20o batt an hr) .it was fantastic .We paddled downstream and saw loads of monkeys.We even had three monkeys jump on our kayak looking for food.If you don’t want the monkeys to jump on ur kayak don’t paddle too close to the bank.we had two monkeys fight on our boat which made me a bit nervous as it rocked the boat a bit, but it was a great experience and well worth doing.We only did one hr kayak but saw monkeys almost immediately so it was the best 200 batt trip we did

Thung Yee Pheng Mangrove Forest
Dec 2019
Absolutely a must visit as it is a lush mangrove forest with many water outlets leading to beautiful open bays. This forest is loaded with wild life, birds and monkeys galore.
First time I see monkeys swimming...it was amazing
Highly recommended

Nice day on mangrove river
Nov 2019 • Family
Really nice half-day trip. Everything smooth: hotel pick-up and transfer to Thung Yee Pheng Mangrove Forest. Saw landwalking fish, friendly monkey, the Saladan pier, colorful crabs and very large fish at the small farm by the end of the trip. Very friendly people and good prices (we booked from the hotel and got a group discount, as we were 5 incl 3 kids aged 3, 6, 8)

300Bht/pax for kayak
Aug 2019 • Couples
It’s nice to walk in for sightseeing, but if for 2pax kayaking I dun think its worth paying 600baht. Unless u really have no plan on that day, u can enjoy kayak out to the sea. Nice view, smelly life jacket.

Relaxing tour.
May 2019 • Family
Our family rented a local boat for 600 baht for 1 hour. The tour was great. The Mangrove forest is in a very good shape. It's worth the trip. Many monkeys jumped onto the boat. Hold your belongings tightly. They are peaceful and not aggresive!

Great morning of islands, kayaking & more
Apr 2019 • Couples
Did the 1/2 day and it was perfect. From pick up at our hotel on, everything went very smooth. Enjoyed the long boat ride thru the mangroves and then stopping at several islands to explore a bit. Gorgeous area. The kayak portion was great as well, exploring a cave and more cool beaches and paddle through of cool formations. Our guide, Free, was great at showing the sites, offering to take pictures and just had that great thailand happy vibe. The monkeys were fun at the end as well.

Felt like good value as well. Would definitely recommend.

Half day is plenty
Apr 2019 • Family
Did the half day. Started in mangrove forest. Boat ride to ghost island with climbing into “eyes” of skull. Then to monkey island for sea kayaking. Not too strenuous but through some cool caves and swam on nice beach. Then boat ride back with monkey feeding. Monkeys climbed all over us and boat. It was great. Guides were super nice and friendly. “Easy banana made sure everyone was safe climbing up ropes etc at ghost island. Best part was we only saw one other tour. So we had ghost island to ourselves. Def recommend.
