East Coast Thailand Hotels - Bangsaen - Chanthaburi - Koh Chang - Koh Kood - Koh Kham - Koh Maak - Koh Samet - Pattaya - Rayong - Sriracha - Trat - HOT DEALS

East Coast Thailand Guide:

The Eastern Seaboard in Chonburi province has coral islands, beautiful beaches, excellent sports facilities, and a wealth of tourist attractions, most of which are located at Pattaya or Rayong. Further along the coast are the towns of Chantaburi and Trat with secluded beaches with white sands and clear waters. For the more adventuresome it is possible to take a side trip into Cambodia

Koh Larn
Koh Larn is one of several islands located off the coast of the popular resort of Pattaya. There is daily boat service. Accommodation is limited, and it is best to check with the boat operators before setting out.

Koh Samet
Koh Samet is a beautiful island full of scenic bays and gently shelving beaches of fine white sand. The most popular, Sai Kaeo and Wong Duan, have a good selection of accommodation from basic thatched cabins to good quality air conditioned rooms. The boat operators at Ban Phe will be able to advise about accommodation. The island has plenty of restaurants serving Thai food and the occasional western dish.

Boats leave for Koh Samet from Ban Phe, 17 km east of Rayong. It is about 60 minutes drive from Pattaya. The normal boat trip to the island takes about 30 minutes and costs 120 Bahtper person return. Songthaews transport visitors from the jetty to beaches around Samet. If you want a faster ride, then speed boats are available and these can take you directly to the beach of your choice.

Part of the island is a National Park and you will be charged a 200 Bahtadmission fee. Please honour the park by not leaving litter and not taking anything out, such as the coral.

Glass bottom boats offer trips to see the coral on the reef. You can also snorkel from these boats to get a better view.

Koh Chang
Koh Chang is Thailand's second largest island and lies about 10km offshore in the Gulf of Thailand near Trat. The centre of the island (Koh Chang National Park) is heavily forested with towering hills and a spectacular waterfall. White sandy beaches fringed with coconut palms line the western side of the island. The clear blue waters on this side of the island are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The island is being developed rapidly.

From Trat take a songthaew for the 18km ride to Laem Ngop Pier. The boat takes about 45 minutes to reach the east side beaches of Tharn Mayom, Dan Mai or Sapparot, and about 3 hours to the western beaches. You can also travel across the island from Sapparot Pier, which is much quicker than taking the boat.

Sheraton Pattaya Resort, is offering special rates April 10-21 during which rooms are priced from 6,600 baht per night onwards and include accommodation good for two persons, buffet breakfast, one-way shuttle service between the hotel and downtown Pattaya and access to high-speed Internet service.
