Rayong

Rayong is a popular weekend destination on the Gulf of Thailand within easy reach of Bangkok. It's a popular destination for local and international travelers, as it’s only a three-hour drive from the capital and makes a great weekend destination. The province is dotted with beaches that are ideal for anyone looking for a quiet getaway and while Rayong includes a number of resort islands, the main destination along the mainland is Rayong Town.

The best accommodations in Rayong Town can be found along the beach, with more than a dozen white-sand beaches that enjoy great year-round weather. Hotel vacancies are hard to come by on weekends and during Thai holidays, when international and domestic tourists flood the area looking for fun on the beach.

Another popular retreat in the province is Khao Wong National Park, which is famous for its unique terrain of limestone bluffs and caves. Most visit the park on a day trip and explore the scenery, but it's also possible to rent bungalows or even campsites inside the park.

Anyone in search of an authentic Thai fishing village will find exactly what they're looking for at Ban Phe. It's situated on a cape close to Rayong town, and while it does offer a candid experience off the tourist trail, finding accommodation is more of a challenge. If hotels in Ban Phe are all booked up, it's still possible to visit on a daytrip form the coastal hotels near Rayong town.

While Utapao International Airport is the closest facility, it mainly operates domestic routes. However, travelers will have no problem chartering minivans or even taxis from Bangkok.
