One unique feature of Tan Lap is that there will be a long teak footbridge runs through the forest. Walking on a narrow path which is sided and surrounded by the towering and dense melaleuca trees is a unique experience.

You can capture the whole nature scene without the interrupting of people. You will feel as if you are going on a mysterious adventure and losing in the maze with no idea of the entrance. It is also the main attraction and the most participated experiences.
Besides the wooden path, visitors can enjoy boating through the canals meandering through the dense forest while enjoying the tranquil atmosphere and listen closely to the life of other beings in the forest.

The forest is also well-known as an ideal place to see lotus bloom. During the summer, lotuses will bloom in the water lake within the forest.
