Beautiful boat ride - water buffalo part was great. The remainder was also very enjoyable although we went midday and would’ve seen more birds earlier or later. Bring a rain jacket if there’s even a remote chance of rain.

A long bridge splits the marshes and, apart from excessive traffic, was a good place for birding. We did not venture onto the water.

The correct location shall read: Khuan Khanun District, Phatthalung 93150 Not "Phatthalung, Songkhla", (Phatthalung and Songkhla are two different provinces)
