"Along the Bay..." Chon Buri by yen_2

Chon Buri Travel Guide: 64 reviews and 86 photos

...just waiting for the sun to come down...

..and here it goes...


Chonburi is in the East of Bangkok and merely 2 hours drive. It is s province situated near the bay and the famous Pattaya is one of the towns. You can find pretty parks along the bay in this area and of course a sunset that will take your breath away! The place has an area of 4,363 sq.kms.

Anyhow, There is evidence that Chonburi has existed ever since the Ayuttaya period. The province was originally composed of 3 small towns which were BangSai , Bangplasoi and Bangphra. They were subsequently formed in to the province of Chonburi during the reign of KING RAMA V.


Travel from Bangkok to Chonburi in the past was done by boat on the Chow Phraya River out to the Gulf of Thailand and then along the east coast.? However, nowadays Sukhumvit Road runs from Bangkok, passes Samut Prakan and Bang Pakong to chonburi.? Another route is from the Bangna intersection to Chonburi,? a distance of on 65? kilometres..

We stayed in Sriracha City where the people are more friendly and the food are even yummy and cheap...I took alot of pictures along the park by the bay and some nice places I had the chance in visiting to...

Pros and Cons

    I never realized what that there is so much to see in Chonburi; we only visited the Tiger Zoo when we passed the town; great tips that we Globerovers hopefully can verify somewhere in the future!
