Rayong – an alternative beach escape

Most people only enter Rayong province to catch the ferry from Ban Phe to Koh Samet. I am probably Samet’s biggest fan and can well understand why most people bypass Rayong itself, for the lure of “the island escape”.

However, after a dozen trips to Samet, I decided it was time for a change and gave Rayong a try. It’s a slightly shorter journey, given that there’s no ferry crossing involved. And you are greeted with the same beautiful white sand and warm, clear blue seas as you get in Samet, as of course they are only separated by a few miles of the same water. And if ferry crossings aren’t your thing then Rayong fits that bill too.
