Bang Pu Recreation Centre has been a famous recreation centre for a long time. Mostly, tourists come here to enjoy their time in the restaurant. From November to the end of April, a lot of seagulls migrate here and live along the seaside. From children to adults, they all love to watch seagulls and feed them; just hold the food and let the bird decide which one to feast on.
Bang Pu used to be a well-known recreation centre in the past because of its short distance from Bangkok. Young people loved to visit to enjoy the view, watching seagulls, eating seafood at Bangpoo Restaurant and ending their evening with a dance.
Nowadays, the usual evening dance is still there every Saturday. More seafood restaurants have been open for tourists who come to visit Bang Pu.
Towards the end of the year, Bang Pu becomes a place for birdwatching, attracting an overwhelming number of tourists of every generation. Apart from birdwatching, there is Bang Pu Nature Education Centre, where you can learn about mangroves. Bang Pu also offers a spectacular view of the sunset.
Interesting attractions nearby include Ancient Siam, Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo, Wat Asokaram and Phra Samut Chedi.
