Thailand East Coast

     Beyond Bangkok, from the estuary of the Chao Phraya River, the East Coast unfolds in a series of bays and beaches to the Thai-Kampuchean border. Many popular resorts, including Pattaya, Asia's premier beach resort, occupy a coast characterised by cliff-hidden bays, palm-fringed beaches, innumerable fishing villages, lovely islands and largely tranquil Gulf waters.

    Major places of interest include Bangsaen, some 100 kilometres southeast of Bangkok, the capital's nearest resort; Bang Phra Golf Course, a self-contained holiday complex some 20 minutes further south; the 1200-acre Khao Khiao Open Zoo, 15 kilometres inland from Bang Phra; Si Racha, a fishing community famed for a delicious sauce and excellent seafood; Pattaya, 147 kilometres southeast of Bangkok, Thailand's "Riviera" and internationally famed beach resort where all manner of watersports, motor-racing, coral islands, luxury accommodation and a vibrant nightlife comprise major attractions; Bang Sare fishing village from where game fishermen seek marlin, sharks, king mackerel and other Gulf denizens; Rayong's Ban Phe fishing village and lovely Samet Island where some 15 bays and superb beaches are fringed by limpd waters and dazzling coral reefs; Chantaburi, site of Thailand's largest Christian church, the Khao Khltchakut and Namtok Phiui national parks which contain attractive waterfalls, and several shops selling locally mined star sapphires; and Trat, the province bordering Kampuchea, best known for its 52-island Ko Chang Marine National Park which is dominated by Thailand's third largest island.
