Just an hour away of Bangkok towards the East and the border to Cambodia, the Gulf of Thailand covers the provinces of Samut Prakam, Chonburi, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat, offering a diversity of natural spectacular sites, pristine beaches and islands as well as cultural places with historic links. A great destination in Thailand and relatively close to the capital.
While Samut Prakan still belongs to the greater Bangkok Metropolitan area, history, small villages with lively rural communities and pristine beaches await for travellers. The area is a great alternative to other coastal destinations in Thailand in terms of seaside experiences and can easily be combined with a stay in Cambodia. History lovers will also enjoy the fact that both provinces of Chanthaburi and Trat used to stay for a while in French hands following historical bitter fights between Siam and French Indochina. Blend of both cultures are still visible today in the old towns of Chanthaburi and Trat, both worth a visit.
