Things To Do In Rayong

Rayong is an underappreciated gem in Thailand’s eastern reaches, though it’s been gaining some popularity as the place to be for those looking for a more quiet vacation. Long popular for travellers, both local and foreign, looking for a paradise island close enough to Bangkok, while still being detached from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan capital.

There’s lots of things to do once you get there and walk out from your hotel suites in Rayong, here’s a few of them.

See the setting sun at Khao Laem Ya

Khao Laem Ya-Mu KohSamet National Park is home to Khao Laem Ya, which is considered by many to be the best vantage point in Rayong, with a stunning view of the eastern city’s blue seas and even the nearby island destination of KohSamet. The hill is both rocky and grassy, making it great for taking pictures. It’s even has camping areas. For those who don’t want to book hotel suites in Rayong because they’re staying in Bangkok, some tour agencies offer tours of the place.

Take a historic walk on Yomjinda Road

Located in the old town area, it’s one of the most important roads there, full of quaint, century-old houses. Some of them have been refurbished into art galleries, museums and cafés, all while preserving their historic aesthetics and feel. One notable art gallery is by the famous Thai photographer, NiwatPao-in, at the DaVinci studio.

Shop at Ban Phe Market

For anyone going to KohSamet, passing by Ban Phe Pier is unavoidable. Near the pier is Ban Phe Market, which has lots of fresh seafood and seafood snacks, like dried squid to shrimp paste. Whether you’re heading to the island or leaving it, Ban Phe Market has something for you.

Enjoy the water near KohSamet

About 2-3 hours of driving and 40 minutes of ferrying from Bangkok, KohSamui is a popular island destination for those looking for sandy beaches not far from the capital. It’s always been a popular destination, so the island’s well-developed, with lots of things to do and places to see. From fantastic fire shows and parties, especially in Sai Kaew Beach and AoPhai (Phai Bay) areas, there’s something for the people looking for something exciting. For those looking to enjoy the natural beauty of the well-preserved island, places like AoWai and AoPakarang are the places to be.
