Often overlooked by visitors to the Land of Smiles, Rayong is located just two hours from the capital city of Bangkok. Features around a hundred kilometers of sun kissed coastline and some beautiful beaches, this is a good place to soak up the sun away from the crowds that gather at the nearby beaches of Pattaya and Jomtien.
The Tourist Authority of Thailand are working hard to promote Rayong at the moment, encouraging the area’s hotels and restaurants to offer special deals to visitors.
As one tourist commented to The Nation recently: “With the main road running parallel to the sea, you can’t find a single hotel by the beach at Mae Ramphung.” Some of Rayong’s attractions include Laem Mae Phim beach, Ban Kon Ao and the Ban Pae market.
So what are you waiting for? Forget the hustle and bustle of the big city and the bright lights of Pattaya, let’s go to Rayong this weekend and enjoy a little peace and quiet.
