It is basically a huge area of unspoiled orchard and mangroves with very little infrastructure. The floating market of Bang Krachao is another popular destination where varieties of products are available like herbal based cosmetics, Thai food, confections and organic produce. Bikes are available for rent from Bang Krachao which can be used to explore the elevated pathways and raised embankments of the area.
