A afternoon at Hat Ao Yang in Chanthaburi

Hat Ao Yang in Chanthaburi, Thailand

One day in busy Pattaya was enough for me so we left as soon as possible for Chanthaburi, to one of the beaches. No planning just following route 36 to Rayong and then Sukhumvit road to Kleang. From there in direction of the coastline behind Chanthaburi town. On recommendations of a friend of us we went for lunch at Hat Ai Yang. And that was a good idea! It is a bit difficult to get there (you will need your own transport) but that is why it still looks like a beach on Koh Samui 30 years ago. There are 2 expensive hotels and 1 simple hotel (but brand new). And of course there are a few seafood restaurants along the beach. Following are a few photos of this hidden gem along the coastline of Chanthaburi province. For more information see A Guide to the Coastline of Chanthaburi.

It all began with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
