Eastern Thailand Attraction

The Eastern region is probably the most popular part of Thailand. Frequented by tens of thousands of tourists and a sizable expat population, Thailand’s east coast is an area that many people return to time and again. The most visited part of this province is undoubtedly Pattaya, with a whole host of international standard hotels, world-class restaurants, nightlife, and of course, the famous Pattaya Beach. For those who’d like to experience a change from the hustle and bustle of the big city, there are also a number of destinations worth visiting in Eastern Thailand, including, but not limited to:

  • Pattaya Floating Market – Within easy reach of all areas of Pattaya is this notable floating market. With a wide selection of stalls offering food, souvenirs, and more, Pattaya Floating Market is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon looking for bargains to take home.
  • East Thailand Islands – The islands in East Thailand, while not as popular (or crowded!) as the islands in the south, offers some great opportunities for sailing, diving, or simply lounging on picture postcard beaches. Some of the most notable islands include Samet Island, Chamao Island ( both Rayong Province), Chang Island, and Kood Island. (both Trad Province)
  • Mainland Beaches – For those who prefer not to venture to the Islands, there are some fantastic beaches that can be reached by car or taxi, including Bansaen Beach, (Chonburi Province) and the spectacular Black Sands Beach at Laem Ngop. (Trad Province)
  • Other Eastern Thailand Attractions – Eastern Thailand isn’t all about beaches and islands. There are several places of interest that are as educational as they are entertaining. Kung Krabaen Bay In Chantaburi Province offers not only stunning ocean vistas but also a Mangrove Forest Education Center where people can learn about these unique ecological systems. If a day isn’t enough, there are plenty of accommodation options in the area. The Rayong Mangrove Forest situated in the province bearing the same name is also well worth visiting for a day trip given its proximity to the tourist areas in Chonburi. One more great destination for those visiting or staying in Chantaburi Province is the Priw Waterfall, which offers a refreshing alternative to the coastal areas of Eastern Thailand.
