Exploring the Eastern Seaboard

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 4 0

Blessed with miles of idyllic beaches and soaring temperatures, the eastern Seaboard is a sun-lover’s paradise. Whether you want to unwind and sample the local seafood or try out water sports, there is much to choose from. Beach resorts range from the chaotic Pattaya, with its lively nightlife, to lesser-known islands such as Ko Chang, which is part of a stunning national marine park. the three other national parks in this region, characterized by tropical forests, mountains, and waterfalls, are home to a wealth of wildlife. the main town in the area is Chanthaburi, center of the thriving gem-mining industry

Getting Around

The Eastern Seaboard’s transport system is comprehensive on the mainland and connects to the main islands. A twice daily train service runs from Hua Lamphong Station in Bangkok to Si Racha and Pattaya. Chon Buri and Sattahip are served by domestic airports. Buses are the easiest way to get around the Eastern Seaboard: there is a regular service from Bangkok’s Eastern Bus Terminal to the main towns. To visit places not on bus routes, charter a song thaew from a local bus station. Transportation in the mainland towns is provided by songthaews, samlors (three-wheeled bicycles), and tuk-tuks. Several ferries leave Ban Phe each day for Ko Samet. On the island, song thaews service the main beaches, and fishing boats can be hired to surrounding islands. Ko Chang and Ko Mak are reached by ferry from Laem Ngop. Infrastructure on these islands is poor, though motorcycles and songthaews can be hired to get around the rough roads.
