The Bueng Bua Nature Center sits within a huge freshwater marsh (one of the largest in Thailand). It is part of the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park and foreigners will be charged 200 baht (locals 40 baht) to enter. If you paid the fee to visit Phraya Nakhon Cave (located in the same park), one fee covers your visit here as well if you remember to save your entrance ticket. The marsh is adjacent to a striking line of mountains, which makes for fabulous photos looking out over the marsh toward the mountains. A key feature of the center is a long boardwalk out over the marsh. Unfortunately, more than half of the boardwalk is in disrepair (now for more than four years!) and is blocked off. Visitors can still walk part way on the renovated portion of the walk, but will be disappointed that so much is still closed. Especially disappointing that the budget has not be allocated to complete the renovations, considering the steep fees that are charged visitors to enter the park. Visitors can also pay for a boat ride out among the cattails of the marsh. I would rate this place with four or five stars except for the poor maintenance.

We visited this marsh after climbing the Khao Daeng view point (elsewhere in the national park) and found it to be a great, peaceful and picturesque corner to wile away a few hours. The scenery is beautiful, lush and very unique in Thailand.

The site also benefits from not being overrun by lots of tourists. We went late July, during low-season, and were the only ones there on a bright sunny afternoon!
Although it is not possible to complete a full route, as the boardwalk is undergoing repairs, you can still walk a considerable way and enjoys views across the marsh.

The lotus season is over. Only a few lotus blooming. Some part of the board walk are still not upgraded yet. Still ok to walk but be careful.

200bath per pax for foreigners. totally worth it if lotus are blooming but not for now.

So do check if lotus are in season before venturing there. It’s almost an hour drive from Hua Hin City.

We recently visited the beautiful fresh water lotus lakes here , the scenery was absolutely stunning , after our walk we called into the cafe for a cup of Thai tea , it was made by the lovely lady owner , we also chose some of their delicious ice creams , I had Hokkaido Milk and my husband chose blueberry , just what we needed!
We were the only tourists there so I could not comment any further.

We visited this site. Allow an hour to visit. The boardwalk is lovely through the lily pads and reeds.
We were lucky to see a young heron sat on a lily pad looking for fish.
It’s a lovely site, and when the rest of the boardwalk has been repaired will be stunning. Well worth giving an hour to visit. There are refreshments at this site.

We probably arrived too late in the morning and too late in the season to enjoy the full effect of the boat ride through the pond. The boat operator was a very good guide and despite the small number of blooming lotuses, we really enjoyed the trip. It was nice to sit in one of the gazebos along the boardwalk among the lotus plants and watch birds while enjoying a bit od shade and a cool breeze.

Located in coast of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, it is the first marine national park of Thailand. Khao Sam Roi Yot means "The mountain with three hundred peaks" and refers to a series of limestone hills along the Gulf of Thailand with highest one at 605m above the sea level. The northwest corner of the mountain range is called Thung Sam Roi Yot and is mainly freshwater marsh covering nearly 37% of the national park which makes it the largest wetlands area in Thailand.

We came here before in July 2018 and the bridges are under renovation. They’ve finished some of the work now, but parts are still under construction. It’s a nice, peaceful place to visit. Not too hot in February, though I think we missed the lotus flowers in full bloom by a few weeks. In any case, I recommend this place as a nice diversion from Hua Hin.
