Rayong province has mountains which are interspersed by flat plains and large tracts of land which houses forests and rubber and fruit plantations. Just off the shore of Rayong are many popular islands like Ko Samet and Ko Man which are popular with tourists.
Rayong is famous for its natural beauty and is extremely popular for its seafood products like shrimp past, fish sauce and dried seafood. Along with this, you can also savor juicy tropical fruits like Mangosteen, Rambutan and Durian.
Places of tourist attractions include the King Takshin Shrine, Wat Pa Pradu, Phra Chedi Kiang Nam among others. The King Takshin Shrine commemorates King Takshin’s brief halt in Rayong. This shrine highly revered by Thai people, especially those of Chinese ancestry.
Wat Pa Pradu is temple constructed during the Ayutthaya period and it is home to a reclining Buddha which is 11.95 meters long and 3.60 meters long. This image of Buddha draws a lot of attention as it reclines on its left side unlike other reclining images of Buddha.
Phra Chedi Kiang Nam is a pagoda situated on an islet at the mouth of the Rayong River. The pagoda is 10 meters tall and is quite ancient but there is no evidence as to when it was built and by whom.
Then there is the Sri Muang Park which is popular for its Buddhist shrine called Ho Phra Budda Ang Khee Rot. This shrine is built on an artificial lake and is in the traditional Thai architectural design.
