    I think there 're nothing interesting in Rayong city. Rayong 's famous in nice beaches and islands but for city ,some parts 're for industry. But if you 'd like to discover the city. There're some shrines and temples where the people sacred. - King Tak Sin shrine : the memorial of King Tak Sin who won the Burmese army in Ayutthaya - Thonburi period. - Pa Pra Du temple : with a big reclining Buddha. The strange things , this statue laying in the left ,not as usaul. - Chedi in the rayong river : old chedi which no history but old in style. - City shrine Uhmm... Just an info on accommodation but I cannot recommend... - Golden City Rayong 530/1 Sukhumvit Rd. Neon Phra Sub-disctrict Call 038 618701-15 Fax 038 861191 135 rooms Costs 800-2,000 ºÒ· -Rayong City 11 Rathbumrung Rd,Soi 4 Noen Phar Sub-district Call 038 614872-3,615384-5 Fax 038 614872-3 170 rooms costs 550-1,000 ºÒ· I think there 're more which you can easy to find and also varied price and qualities.

    rayong is a large provice and rayong-town is not really a nice destination . anyway you will have to take the boat from ban-pae 's harbour to get to the beautifull island of koh-samet . there's a lot of food-stalls near the harbour and some shops . ban-pae has a good market in the morning . ban-pae has a few hotels in town and some resorts outside town . how long are you going to stay on the mainland and do you need a hotel there ? nice and cheap fish and seafood in local water-front-restaurants you find at ban-laem-pim further south . also very good for shopping and a nice trip is chantaburi further south . if any more questions just ask ! greetings from belgium .

    Hi! Just wanted to say thanks for the very useful info!!! Since Rayong seem to be a disappointment, I guess we'll skip it and go for Koh Samet. However, we are going to stay at a beach resort called Purimas for 2 days, do you know anything about this place? We were recommended it from relatives living in Thailand. I will now start to look for info about Chantaburi, that seems like a nice place! Thanks again! Kind regards / Hallows

    "Sawadee" kha is how a female says Hello in Thailand. "Sawadee,khrup "is how a male says Hello in Thailand. Go to Rayong Resort Hotel,it is listed on "Rayong hotels website,"it has a pier tha goes out into the Gulf of Thailand for 100 yards,it is shown onHotel website,right on the beach. Very hot season starts in March,very little clothes are needed,acclimate yourself to the heat,(0-95 degrees Farenheit with 75-95% humidity.,monsoon seson stars in June.April is full of festival countrywide. See ChiagMai and ChiagRai,Bangkok,Hua-Hin,Songhla. Chanthuburi is grear place to get gemstones and jewelry really cheap,be careful of authenticity.Any good jeweler will be affiliated with Gemstone Organization and will a plaque or certificate. Look at Thailand websites,alot of information is available.Look at Tourist Autority of Thailand website,www.TAT.com,and other such website.Look at Foedder,s guidbooks,look at Baedeker,s guidebook. Have a nice trip.Thailand is a very beautiful country.
