We have visited this national park several times and we never regretted every moment we are there. It is quite far from Bangkok, three hours as a half of driving and that can be tiresome. Finding the Purple Swamphens at the Lotus Swamp is a treat since that swamp is wide and mosquito infested. We went there twice for camping and many times over just for day trips and it has not been a bore.

This bird is always there, although, during the winter, there are more migrating birds coming to the swamp to enjoy the abundance of fish, insects, and the cover of tall swamp grass. The location is also perfect with a canyon in between the swamp and the ocean on the otherside. There are several protected animals at that area and everything is just fantastic to see. You have also the great view, a landscape that one can always remember. The beautiful lilies on the swamp, when they bloom and cover the whole water area, it is just so beautiful to watch.
