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.

Simple Relaxing Adventure
While I love Bangkok, sometimes you need to get away from the bustle of the city. This trip met that need perfectly. Hansa has done an amazing job working with local families to help give you a glimpse into what it is like to live on the coast. From cockle picking at the fisherman village, walking in a local family's salt farm, or photographing the incredibly charismatic mudskippers in the mangrove forest. This perfectly paced trip will allow you the escape to a little-visited corner of Thailand and leave you refreshed for the next step in your journey.
