Boat trip “Khao Daeng Canal” “Guilin” Prachuap Khiri Khan

19 May 2024

This week, the Nook Zag team is still pinning down in Prachuap Khiri Khan province…as I told the readers that I went to relax at “Had Sai Kaew Resort” Ban Krut, Bang Saphan District. This installment will take up to 3 nights and 4 days. There will be an opportunity to go around the “unseen” tourist attractions of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province for readers in many places. Last week I wrote a recommendation. King Mongkut’s Science Park at Wah Kor, which has the Wah Kor Aquarium Be the protagonist Anyone who reaches Prachuap Khiri Khan and does not stop is considered not having reached Prachuap Province. And it is considered good fortune for the Sok Saek team to stop by on this trip. (Probably the 4th time already) I met the “human mermaid” Nong Florida Suksawang, the real one from TikTok who unexpectedly came to dive with sharks in a giant display tank, so I took the opportunity to write a report for you. Readers will learn about the story of a young woman who works as a “mermaid”. Plus, readers this week will return to Kui Buri District to stop by to float a boat at Khao Daeng Canal at Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. That was once known as the “Guilin” of Thailand, but later, when the construction of the Cheow Lan Dam or the Ratchaprapa Dam at Surat Thani caused the water stored in the dam to flood into many beautiful mountains of the place. That…the dam’s nickname is “Guilin”. So Thailand went to Ratchaprapa Dam instead of Khao Daeng Canal. However, there are still tourists who remember the old things and the past that this place used to be nicknamed “Ku”. Yalin” Thailand came first. Therefore, there are quite a few people who still call Khao Daeng Canal “Guilin”, only the title has been reduced to just that. “Guilin of Prachuap Khiri Khan” instead of being called Guilin Thailand as in the past for the trip to the “port” at Khlong Khao Daeng Temple, Village No. 2, Khao Daeng Subdistrict, Kui Buri District, which will be the starting point for the boat float. that It’s very easy these days. Just press “Google” and say we’re going here…this all-knowing “Agu” will make a sound. Some “Turnleft” or “Turnright” sometimes take us to our final destination. In many travel guide documents, Khao Daeng Canal is mentioned as It is a canal located in Khao Daeng Subdistrict, Kui Buri District, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. It is a canal that flows from “Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park” flows into the Gulf of Thailand, with very beautiful scenery on both sides of the canal. Many mountains can be seen. Both near the canal and far away in the Sam Roi Yot group…so it has been nicknamed “Gui Lin” of Prachuap Khiri Khan. In addition to seeing the beautiful scenery, Khao Daeng Canal will also flow through a fishing village. a village reasonably large If you have time to stop by and visit, you will learn and experience. with the life of a fisherman Including buying some fishery products to take with us and give to our close relatives and friends as well… For the boat launch point, it will be at the pier at Wat Khao Daeng, which the temple itself has a beautiful temple and many mountains. It’s a scene in the background. You can take photos as souvenirs. Or go for a walk and stretch your legs first in the morning or in the evening when the sun is shining and the wind is falling. You will be extremely happy at the temple pier. It will be the location of representatives of the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park office. For selling tickets to visit the national park, the price is 40 baht for Thai adults and 20 baht for children. But if it is a foreign tourist The price will be 200 baht for adults and 100 baht for children. There will also be a medium-sized long-tail boat rental service for not more than 6 people, 500 baht per boat for one trip along the canal. The owners of the boats will be villagers in the community. Khao Daeng comes to serve There are 12 boats in total. Each boat will run for approximately 40 minutes to 1 hour. During the tour, the income belongs to the entire community. In terms of safety, it is considered OK. The boats are relatively new. and a fairly large one There is a life jacket to wear. And there will be officials standing and giving it to everyone until it’s complete. So now we can set sail and arrive at the atmosphere and beauty. As well as the scenery on 2 sides of Khao Daeng Canal. Coincidentally, by the time the team was getting off the boat, it was almost 4:00 p.m. Even though the sun was still not shaded, it wasn’t as bright anymore. Along with the sea breeze blowing gently all the time, it helps to feel “cool” and breathe easily, sitting happily along the way. As for the mountains along the canal, there are “crocodile horns”, “monkey face horns”, horns that can “imagine” 8 shapes. Some experts, including the large cliff of “Khao Daeng” which is the name of the canal and this area, look mountain ready. Imagining it as “Gui Lin” in its entirety, the long-tail boat captain brought us back the same way. Pass through the pier in front of the temple and go out to sea in the Gulf of Thailand. Passing through the fishing village mentioned earlier, the atmosphere changes from beauty to knowledge about the lives of the fishermen. Met a young fisherman sitting happily playing a guitar on the front steps of his house along the canal. The leader of the sneaky team had never been to Guilin, China, even though he had been to China many times. I went to Cheow Lan Dam when it was just being built. Haven’t seen a picture of a mountain in the middle of water before. So it’s not right to say that How beautiful is it? (Even if you look at the photos, they are very beautiful.) For “Guilin” Prachuap Khiri Khan The entire team likes it. They give it 8 out of 10, sometimes 9 out of 10. Especially the team leader gives it 10 out of 10, just like a kind teacher. P.S. I heard the news that the park will be closed during the month of June. To allow nature to recuperate. Therefore, if you go during this time, it will be okay. But if going in June Please inquire first. The phone number he gave is 0–3282–1568. I hope it’s still usable.” “Zoom” Click to read more about the “Zoom Zag” column.
