Rayong, 180km southeast of Bangkok, offers a healthy blend of city and seaside attractions and is famous for its picture-perfect islands, casuarina-fringed beaches and large scale industrial estate at Map Ta Phut. Backed by mountain ranges, its 100-km long shoreline harbours five picturesque beaches, ideal for enjoying a seafood lunch, a dip in the sea or a leisurely afternoon away from the city. The two scenic points at Laem Mae Pim and Pha Sawan (Heaven Cape) offer breathtaking panoramas of pristine forests and the bright blue sea.

Best time to visit

Because Rayong is mostly a beach destination, it’s best to visit Rayong during the dry and cool season from November to February. But, if you want to sample tropical fruit as well, the early part of the rainy season (June and July) sees some of the heat disappear and it will most likely only rain for a few hours, and not every day.

Rayong’s current weather and 7-day forecast


Rayong boasts a charming historic quarter and the city’s beauty has been immortalized in one of Thailand’s all-time famous epics, Phra Abhai Mani. Time to immerse yourself in some Thai-style fantasy while uncovering the local stories hidden within.

Check out these top things to do in Rayong, Thailand, and enjoy authentic local experiences before the rest of the world catches on.

1. Get your dose of vitamin sea on Koh Samet

Just about 2-3 hours’ drive from Bangkok and another 40 minutes’ ferry ride, Koh Samet is truly a paradise within reach. It has always been a favorite getaway among Thai locals and is therefore well-developed. You can expect fantastic fire shows and some party scene, especially in Sai Kaew Beach and Ao Phai (Phai Bay) areas. Thankfully, the island remains well-preserved after all this time. There are also quiet beaches and bays, such as Ao Wai and Ao Pakarang.
Other than enjoying banana boat and other water sports, snorkeling, fishing (including squid) and turtle and shark spotting (if you’re lucky), Koh Samet is an interesting location for Thai literature fans. Koh Kaew Pisadan in the all-time famous Thai epic poem Phra Abhai Mani is inspired by Koh Samet. Penned by the UNESCO-honored bard Sunthorn Phu, Phra Abhai Mani features not only human characters but also mythical creatures like mermaid, sea ogress and dragon horse. Don’t be surprised when you find their life-size statues scattered around Koh Samet.

2. Wonder about nature in Koh Talu area

Talu means pierced and it’s obvious where the name of the island comes from. Hop on a ferry from Koh Samet for not only the hole in the rock wall but also turquoise water, powdery white sand and the most beautiful coral reef in Rayong.

3. Indulge with the ultimate beauty and serenity on Koh Mannork

Part of the Man islands, which consists of Koh Mannork, Manklang and Mannai. The three islands are all beautiful, but Koh Mannork is no. 1 and is also the biggest. Owned by the Thai Navy, the island is private. Come enjoy stunning natural scenery in peace and quiet and meet the gorgeous local residents: peacocks. You can start your journey from either Koh Samet or Rayong city.

Nearby is Koh Mannai and the island is home to a Sea Turtle Conservation Project.

4. Get your seafood supply at Ban Phe Market

If you’re going to Koh Samet, you have to start from Ban Phe Pier. After leaving the island, don’t forget to shop for fresh seafood or seafood snacks at Ban Phe Market. From dried squid to shrimp paste, you can surely find a taste of Rayong to take home.

5. Feast on the king and the queen of fruits and more at Rayong Fruit Festival

Every May, June and July Rayong is overflowing with the freshest, best fruits from orchards around the city. Durians, mangosteens, rambutans and many more. The variety is deliciously dizzying.

Tapong Fruit Market near the downtown area hosts Rayong Fruit Festival annually for a week in May, June or July, so enjoy your all-you-can-eat fruit feast. The festival also features live music, fruit eating competition and other fun activities.
Many orchards are in fact in Tapong, so go there for freshly picked fruits (by yourself!) and learn more about local agriculture. Khun Sirapatsorn, our Local Expert in Rayong is always ready to take you for an all-you-can-eat tropical fruit tour at a fruit farm. This is an opportunity not to be missed! 

6. Enjoy a history walk on Yomjinda Road

The most important and most beautiful road in the old town area, Yomjinda Road is a strip of quaint century-old houses. Some of them are refurbished into local museums, art galleries and cafés. Said art includes photography by famous Thai photographer, Niwat Pao-in, at DaVinci Studio. You’ll also find his collection of retro stuff and works by his artist friends.   

7. Pay respect to the floating pagoda, Phra Chedi Klang Nam

Back when boat was the most important mean of transportation, like a lighthouse, Phra Chedi Klang Nam signaled arrival in Rayong. Part of Wat Pak Nam, the white pagoda was built on an isle in the river and it’s one of the city’s most sacred site. Today you can easily cross the road that connects to mainland to the pagoda.

8. Watch the sunset at Khao Laem Ya

Part of Khao Laem Ya-Mu Koh Samet National Park, Khao Laem Ya is the most stunning viewpoint in Rayong. There you can see the eastern city’s vast blue sea and even Koh Samet.

Apart from the view, the hill itself is beautiful. Khao Laem Ya is both rocky and grassy, so you’ll find plenty of photo ops.

You can even camp there.

9. Relax by the sea in Phe Arboretum (Suan Son Beach)

If you don’t have enough time for Koh Samet, Suan Son Beach is a good option for relaxation. It’s swimmable and has good seafood restaurants and picnic spots. It also has a unique charm: tunnel-like rows of tall casuarina trees.

10. Marvel at the golden mangrove and live like a fisherman in Prasae

Thailand has a lot of lush mangrove forests, but it’s not every day you get to see a golden one like Thung Prong Thong in Prasae. A wooden walkway cuts through the vast yellow-green field and when sunlight catches it in the morning, it seems to turn gold. Before you reach Thung Prong Thong, you’ll have to walk through the classic green mangrove forest, so there are different kinds of beauty to behold. At the end of the trail is the 1943-built frigate HTMS Prasae Memorial and you can get onto the deck.

Forests aside, Prasae is where you can enjoy homestay. More than fresh seafood, you can get a taste of the life of local fishermen in the area.

Most of the accommodation in Rayong along the coast is in the form of midrange and luxury resorts. For budget accommodation, it’s best to stay in Ban Phe, which is home to several cheap guesthouses focused on attracting the backpacking crowd heading onwards to Koh Samet. In Rayong town, the accommodation isn’t particularly impressive, but there are several comfortable options, conveniently located close by to the bus terminal and old town.

Although Rayong is not popular with foreign visitors, this has not affected the culinary scene, which boasts a variety of cuisines including Korean, Indian, German and American. Rayong is also famous for its delicious seafood and tropical fruit, so despite there not being many tourist attractions here, you can spend your time sampling lots of great food! If you decide to skip the town itself, and just head to the coast, there are some good restaurants at the more developed beaches (Mae Rumphueng, Suan Son and Mae Phim), and most of the resorts have their own restaurants or cafes too.

Western and International Food

Starting with the international scene, your first stop should definitely be Yurak Rayong (17/7 Khlonhkhut Rd), a traditional Korean restaurant that serves a good variety of dishes. If you’ve never had Korean food before, this is the perfect opportunity, and I would list it as one of our favourite cuisines! There’s something to suit everyone, from barbequed meats to kimchi (spiced cabbage) stews.

Alternatively, you can enjoy some German comfort food and some imported beers at the German Bierhaus (Rajbamrung Soi 6 Rd). The food is authentic (as is the beer!) and they also offer a good variety of Thai dishes, pasta and pizza.

Close by to the Bierhaus, there are several nice cafes, Cake House and Happy Camper (109 Rajbamrung Rd), which are the best places to get coffee, cake and other sweet treats. There’s also Odile Steak House (Choeng Noen) for more Western food, and meat lovers will be impressed by the quality of their steaks.

Finally, if you love spicy food and curries, there’s an Indian restaurant a bit further out of town called Spices (Thanon Sukhumvit 38). As with anywhere in Thailand, international cuisine costs more than local food, so the above are probably not suitable choices if you are on a budget.

Local Food

Of course, if you are visiting Thailand it’s likely you want to try the local cuisine, and Rayong has plenty of Thai restaurants to choose from. The best venues are those that are popular with the locals, such as Naidol Makham Thao (16 Khlong Khut, off Sukhumvit Road), which is very centrally located too. The food is well priced, and the menu has an excellent selection of Thai dishes, including everyone’s favourite, tom yum soup.

Or, if you want to eat somewhere a bit trendier, you should try Terra Cotta (109 Moo 2). In addition to delicious Thai food, they also prepare their own mouthwatering selection of cakes and pastries, perfect for an after lunch or dinner treat.


If you aren’t going to the coast, but looking to try some seafood, Laem Cha Reon (Riepjaifang Rd) is right by the waterfront, but very close to the town. The restaurant has a huge terrace overlooking the ocean, and guests can enjoy a wide range of dishes, from fresh crab to deep fried seabass.

That said, the coast is where to go for the freshest and most delicious seafood, and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. The more developed areas of Mae Rumphueng, Ban Phe (Suan Son beach) and Mae Phim also have several Western style restaurants too.

Around Mae Rumphueng Beach

At Mae Rumphueng beach, it’s essential that you visit the famous Tamnanpar Restaurant (167/6 Moo 7 Sukhumvit Rd), aka The Classic Forest Restaurant, where visitors can enjoy a jungle setting, complete with streams, tropical flowers, and even a small water park. The food is quite good, but most people visit for the ambience and to enjoy some beautiful nature whilst they dine. Several times it was voted the best local restaurant in Thailand and if you can, do pay them a visit. Prices are surprisingly acceptable, so there is no reason not to go.

For Western food, Mae Rumphueng is also home to Pizza Sofia (Hat Mae Rumphueng Rd), which serves good quality thin-crust pizza. It’s possible to get take-away here, so you can take it to the beach which is just across the road!

Around Ban Phe Town

In Ban Phe town, which is where to go to catch the ferry to Koh Samet and a good base for Suan Son beach, there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. There are several good seafood restaurants with views over the ocean; Talay Rayong is reasonably priced, whilst Baan Rabeang Mai is a bit pricier but closer to the water (both just west of Seree Pier).

Suan Son beach has lots of smaller seafood restaurants too. Ban Phe also has a handful of cheap Thai eateries serving pad thai and kaprao gai, close to Nuan Thip and Phe Pier.

For Western food, the best spots are either Christie’s (280/92 Liap Chai Fang Rd) or O’Leary’s (157/8 Moo 2), both of which serve various comfort food dishes, plus a good selection of cocktails and wine.

Laem Mae Phim

Further east at Laem Mae Phim beach, there are lots of seafood eateries and a couple of Western-style restaurants too. Tequila Sunrise (opposite Pimpimarn Beach Hotel, Laem Mae Phim Beach Road) has gorgeous views of the ocean, and serves both Western and Thai dishes. They also have a good cocktail selection, and the bar often has live acoustic music. Alternatively, you can head to Villa Bali (308 Moo 3 Tambon Kram) for some delicious wood-fired pizzas, live music and great atmosphere.

Taking a cruise on the fascinating Mekong River offers a unique and memorable travel experience. The Mekong River, one of the longest rivers in Asia, flows through several countries, including China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Each destination along the river offers its own distinct cultural, historical, and natural attractions. In this article, we will go over what you can expect when cruising the Mekong River. 


International travelers to Thailand will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or ATK test results from October 1st, 2022 onward.

In a new move to attract travelers during peak season, Thailand is doing away with the requirement of needing vaccination certificates or Covid-19 negative results in the case of unvaccinated passengers. Additionally, those infected with Covid-19, but have mild symptoms don’t need to isolate from next month. The same applies to those who test positive but display no symptoms.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced these changes on Thursday after the National Communicable Diseases Committee (NCDC) had a meeting on Wednesday.

Instead of isolating those who have contracted the disease would be required to wear a mask, socially distance themselves from others and wash their hands frequently for the first five days. They also need to stay away from those who are immunocompromised and vulnerable.

Dr. Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, informed that since the present Covid-19 mutation doesn’t cause serious symptoms in most people, disease control measures can be relaxed.

National Security Council secretary-general Supoj Malaniyom added that the new measures are being put in place to help improve the economic conditions of the country.

“The primary aim will be to ensure the economy is back on track so people could earn their livelihoods once more,” he said.


How long to spend in Thailand may seem like a ridiculous question to address, but if you have plenty of time and aren’t sure how much to dedicate, this blog will definitely help you out. 

How long can you stay in Thailand? 

Well, as long as you like! From 10 days to a month, there are various ways you can travel across Thailand and uncover its secrets. Advising an ideal trip length for Thailand is a bit of a complex challenge, as it depends on several factors such as the places you wish to visit, the activities you plan to join, or if you want to combine Thailand with its neighbor countries. 

Stay tuned! We are going to sort all these things out including the step-by-step guide to create the best itinerary in Thailand.
