The single best way is to take a boat to get in, with a guide who can show you what there is to see. However, if you are like me, love cycling, you can cycle right through the heart of the park on the highway and stop on the way to see what there is to see. And there's a... More

You do not need to be an ornitolog to like this place. The lake is a fantastic place with around 150 different kinds of birds, small "roads" for the boats between all green vegetables. We also saw waterbuffles during this one hour trip. If you have the possibility to go there in the morning (we did not), there are 1000´s... More

We hired a boat for an hour for 450 baht. The boatman was great taking us to see the different sites and slowing down each time I raised my camera to take a photograph, In the end we were almost 2 hours for the same price. Wonderful lotus flowers and it was interesting to see the diversity of different parts... More

We stopped by Thale Noi Lake on the way to Songkhla from Krabi, rented a shallow skiff for 400 baht an hour, for three of us, and the boatman set out, straight across the huge, shallow lake. Soon we couldn't see the shore, skimming over water plants, passing rare waterbirds, even a herd of dangerous Asian Water Buffalo, which ignored... More

If you are nearby Phatthalung I suggest you to drop by at this place. Huge lake with lots of waterlilies ( if you go during the right time ) and varieties of fowls. This place is very windy and best time to visit the lake is before 10am. You can also take a boat ride to cruise around the lake.
