Pran Buri Forest Park

A small mangrove forest park about 3.2 km², situated in Pran Buri District of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, about 25 km south from the popular tourist destination of Hua Hin. The park is popular for its mangrove forest walk and birds.

Followed by a visit from the Thai Royal Family, the park was established as a forest recovery project in 1982. The park area was partly shrimp farms, after a successful program the farms were turned into forest.

The forests in the park are mainly mangrove, mixed deciduous and pine trees along the coast. The mangrove forests are next to the Pran Buri River where the river reaches Gulf of Thailand, consequently affected by the tides.

The main attraction of the park is a kilometer long boardwalk over the mangrove forests. It is also possible to explore the forests by boat when possible.

The rainy season is May to November with most rainfall in September to November. Rest of the year is quite dry.
