Traveling in Rayong province along the Eastern Seaboard

Traveling in Thailand

Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 21 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Rayong province is along the Eastern Seaboard and will be by most tourist be known for Koh Samet or U-Tapao International Airport. For Thai people Rayong is known as Thailands biggest industrial zone (Mathaput).

For me personal it was in 1995 that I was for the first time in Rayong province, to stay 1 night along the sea at Rayong town. Just as stop-over traveling from Koh Chang to Don Muang Airport, as we had been reading that Rayong was a popular destination for people from Bangkok. Much later (starting in 2003) I would go many times to Ban Phe, Koh Samet and Hat Mae Runphueang. Or visit the waterfalls at Khao Samao National Park. And later I would also make some motorbike tours in Rayong province.
