Chonburi covered Pattaya and Bang saen, these 2 areas is at beach side but there is east and west. Both is nice places, Pattaya is more nightlife spots and restaurant versus Bang Saen but you never find any cheaper and fresh sea foods unless you visit to Bang saen.
My first visit and only stayed 2 days, but will certainly return there in the future - found the electronics located at the the malls quite inexpensive to the likes of Bangkok and the bigger cities in Thailand
Chonburi is a typical medium size Thai city, nothing special. It is close to Pattaya, which is the sleaziest beach town in the world, with is never-ending escapades of serial depravity and debuachery.
I recommended you to go to Peak-mon-dha-lay restaurant, nearly Kho-Sam-muk and AngSiLa. The owner was very nice,he is about 70yrs but friendly and absolutely his taste was very delicious.
I suggested you to order "Kang Som Khai Pra Reaw Seaw" Yummy!
Chon Buri is a large area and each part differing slightly in what attractions there are. I stay in Bangsaen to visit the university, the beaches, monkey mountain and sriracha tiger zoo.
ชลบุรีเดินทางสะดวกจากกรุงเทพ บางแสนไผหาของอร่อย ร้านเหล้าดีๆ นักศึกษาน่ารัก บรรยากาศวัยรุ่น ปต่อาจจะเลิกเร็วหน่อย แต่พัทยา เมืองที่ไม่เคยหลับไหล เป็นคำตอบของนักท่องเที่ยวทุกคำถาม
Unlike Phuket, Krabi & Pattaya, rest of Chonburi is untouched by rapid commercialization and is a truer Thai experience in terms of food, hospitality, and everyday life
Chonburi is located in the East of Thailand, most of attrative place in the province is Night life,beach,seafood the price is acceptable and people here are friendly.
The hotel is nowhere near Chomburi its siracha after 10 at night there is nothing to do no where is open no nightlife very little to do in the day time
Plan ahead, no need to pick hotel on beach because many hotels are on walking distance. Easy to drive around, the car rentals are at reasonable prices.
Chonburi is not a tourist city, but it is a good place from where you can make many trips to islands, surroundings, or to toerist places like pattaya.
There are also many golfcourses around chonburi, espacially south of chonburi. The city itself has not much to offer.
It was okay for a short stay but I would not have liked to stay more than three nights - there is not a great deal of social activity taking place.
A unattractive city, infested with cars and bedevilled with a convoluted one-way system if it has any redeeming features, I've yet to find them.
Chonburi is known for Bang Sean beach. Dirty, crowded. Can not see the beach for the 100's of beach chairs and prolific number of food stalls.
Go into the city for any sembalance of Thai culture.
First time in Chonburi. I loved this city. Chonburi is not to far from Pattaya, if you are looking for the best night entertainment available.
It is also close to natural scenery and things to do with the kids. I was not to impressed with the beaches but then again Pattaya is not to far away.
Chonburi is covered Pattaya and Bang Saen areas, which is from east to west. If you plan to have the activities at beach or nightlife .
...I prefer you to go Pattaya, because the sea water is much cleans and more nightlife spots compare to Bang Saen beach. But if your prefer to have cheap sea foods, better go to Bang Saen and you will never regret. The price is cheaper than Pattaya 50%
This is about the city of Muang,Chonburi. many good places to eat along with a large night market near the big long pier area.
Not much English spoken here but they are very friendly and helpful.
Chonburi is a province that has a number of well-known beaches so you can visit beaches like Bangsean, Pattaya, Jomtien, etc.
