is the main town as well as capital of Rayong Province on the east coast of Thailand. It is about 179 kilometers from Bangkok
. Rayong is a seaside resort, but as it is farther away compared to Pattaya
, it receives fewer visitors. As such, its beaches are transquil and prefect for those seeking some solitude.

Travel to Rayong
You can get to Rayong by bus from Bangkok. There are buses from the Eastern Bus Terminal at Ekkamai in Bangkok. The journey takes about 3 hours.
There are also flights (not necessary for most tourists, in my opinion) from Bangkok to the U-Tapao Pattaya International Airport, provided by Orient Thai Airlines. From here, you can get to Rayong by taxi. Personally, I find it rather time consuming to fly and then take a taxi.
Travel within Rayong
The town itself can be explored on foot. For greater distances, hail one of the songtheaws (passenger pickup trucks).
