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.

I rode my bicycle down the wooden pathways. Exciting... at the end was a tall tower with exceptional views. Wonderful place indeed. Dont skip it, the views are great, seeing the mangrove swamp is a learning experience ...
