I've popped into this place a few times, when passing through Rayong City.
There's a short stilted walk through the mangrove swamps where companies are sponsoring habitats for the crabs. And at the end of this walk a viewing tower with a pleasing view.
Always good to get away from the crowds and breath some fresh air when on a break. The SVT & MRC was nice to visit although the smell of crab or some marine life was quite strong at the start of the walk but quickly...More

Ironically you will be in Rayong and I will be in Singapore from 5-12 September. What dates will you be in Rayong? I might be able to meet you and help your around town as I have a car and have lived here for eight years - therefore know my way around.
