Discover the Secrets of Salt and Savor Homemade Seafood at Salt Farm

★★★★★★★★★★

An amazing experience!

Today's experience at the mangrove forest and salt farm was both informative and amazing. My favorite part was the incredible seafood lunch with dishes made from local herbs and vegetables that I've never had before. If you're looking for a quick getaway from Bangkok and you enjoy delicious, fresh seafood then this tour is for you!

From Sea to Table: A Day as a Fisherman at Mangrove Forest and Salt Farm

★★★★★★★★★★

Really engaging!

Hansa was really patient and meticulous during the trip, where she even accommodated to my lateness (around 15minutes), prepared snacks for me on the ride (which she told me to bring everything home afterwards), she also prepared bottles of water during the ride and etc, it really goes to show the effort and care she takes in every trip!

Hansa was also into a bit of eco-tourism or eco-friendly activities so if you are a green person, take this trip with her and I'm sure that you will have a lot of things to share and talk about!

First stop was the mangroove forest, where they support mangroove planting too! So perhaps you can try asking if you wanna do it there! Took a lot of beautiful pictures here and the fresh air brought in by the sea breeze was simply serene. Then we went to the salt farm, where we managed to see a few salt farms with salt starting to crystallize in it! The view here was also breathtaking and stepping into the saltwater farms was well, an experience that you'll like!

Last stop, when we went to this elderly couple's fish farm, I simply love the couple, they were so hospitable, friendly and lovely too. The food cooked here was amazingly fresh, sweet and delicious! But do take note, even if you haven't tried anything before, i.e. blood cockles, just give 1 a try and don't judge the food by appearances! I polished almost everything on the table and took home the leftovers that I couldn't finish and finished it at home.

Lastly on our way back, Hansa brought me to this coconut store, and I swear by my life, the coconut water from this store, was the best that I'd ever had in my life. The sweetness, nuttiness and refreshing flavour of the water, is simply a to-die-for. So anyone taking this tour must must must definitely ask Hansa to bring you there!!

From Sea to Table: A Day as a Fisherman at Mangrove Forest and Salt Farm

★★★★★★★★★★

Fun and delicious

The mangrove forest is fascinating, the salt farm offers great photographic opportunities, and the local meal was one of the tastiest I've had in Thailand. And cockle-picking was a unique experience - really fun and unlike anything I've ever done! Both Hansa and our lunch hosts were delightful people.
