Eastern Thailand is home to a number of lesser visited islands scattered throughout the Gulf of Thailand and provides a far more intriguing route to enter Cambodia. Travelling along the coastline guests can explore an enticing collection of pristine islands in Trat Province – including Koh Chang, Koh Mak and Koh Kood. These jungle interior islands have retained beach style bungalows with the sea on their doorstep, open front restaurants and a lazy, relaxed, infectious pace of life.

Closer to the capital city and accessible within two hours by car are the electrifying bright lights of Pattaya. A burgeoning city that quite literally, has something for everyone. Besides an eclectic nightlife, the city is also home to excellent shopping, professional golf courses, a plethora of five star hotels and is located just half an hour from the island of Koh Lan.

A little further south the island of Koh Samed provides an excellent escape for a day or two. Easily accessible with a wide range of accommodation, its powder white sandy beaches are a contender for the best in Thailand.

Key Destinations in Eastern Thailand:


Situated on the “sunset” side of the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations. It is famous for its long sweeping half-moon bay, lively nightlife, shopping centers, restaurants and attractions such as water parks, elephant villages, tiger zoo, go carting, shooting range, PVT dinner cruise and cultural theme parks. For meeting and incentive events, the eastern seaboard city has the state-of-art PEACH conference centre that lies on 10 acres of land between Jomtien and Pattaya


Situated on the eastern seaboard in the Gulf of Thailand, Rayong Province is dotted with charming beaches and fruit orchards against a backdrop of rolling, green mountains, fading as far as the eye can see. Rayong provides an excellent overnight place to stop on the way to Cambodia or combined with a visit to the islands off its coastline.


Koh Chang is Thailand’s second largest island and adding to its charm, remains sparsely populated. Tourism is slowly developing here with a number of international hotel names, yet the island is still home to a great range of wildlife and jungle making it ideal for trekking and finding personal places of solitude. Lonely Beach is the islands party area – with late night wooden bars dotted along the sandy beach.
