At Hat Mae Ramphueng Beach, apart from fresh seafood, we enjoy so much swimming and relaxing by beach, the scenery is just great . This white sandy beach is very long, around 12 kms stretch. The next beach is Hin Khao beach, another interesting area to stop by and further is Ban Kon Ao, the area with interesting lifestyle of small fishing...more
Do you want to feel like Robinson for a day or a week? Live in a the four-star hotel "Novotel Lim Pae" for two nights, feel the pressure of civiilsation, then take a speed boat on the beach, head towards these islands on the way to Ko Samet, do some snorkelling and a picknick on the deserted beaches, and then head to Samet at sunset, arrive there...more
We made a short visit at Suan Wung Kaew, A big park in nice landscape, hill and to the end inside the area, nice beach there. They provide nice bangalow, good view of the sea. In the past Suan Wung Kaew was very famous place to visit, nowadays as I can see .. quiet but still nice beach.more

...From the bus I really wanted to jump off as I wanted to get some sunset pics from there.We we're too far though as the driver was too lazy to drive! The people in our back was talking about how he drives slowly and wanted to take over the drivers seat! Jesus! Well, I did took a pic from the bus after all. When we arrived, there's no sunset...more
...Just as we entered in Ban Phe we saw the very colorful decorations that says" Welcome to Ko Samet Festival!" from December 6-10,2003! So, just as after we got back from the island we explore the area around but we didn't get to see some of the sights as we only had a couple of hourse before our bus leaves..So, we checked out some sales in the...more
The island is 20mins away by private boat. It is really small, its about 6 km long and some 131 sq km in area. Most of the island is surrounded by National Parks so u can sorta expect a 'Survivor' sorta scenery. Lol! The best time to visit Koh Samet is during the weekdays as the weekends gets really busy with day trippers from the mainland. I...more

While there are countless local varieties to choose from, time, location and sometimes taste dictate that you revert back to a heartier meal from home.Old Germany is a favorite for many ex-pats who work in the nearby industrial areas.The interior motif is decorated in a make-shift German country style way. The waitresses also dress the part with...more

There are several restaurant huts along Rim Phae beach, but this one is probably the bigger and most visitted one. Also the nearest from the hotel/villas (e.g. when you stay in Novotel).Starting evening until around midnight they put the tables and chairs on the shore lines. Sometimes the waves can reach your feet. I guess that's the uniqueness....more

One of the Best Nights I had in Rayong!
Most of my nights in Rayong were spent at small and quiet bars with not much to do, which I do enjoy when I feel like relaxing. However the Lunar Dawn beach party was just full of energy and excitement.
The party is on a beautiful Private Beach, soft sand, clean sea water and palm trees but it was the set up and entertainment which gave the environment the spice it needed for an awesome night! Each Party has a Theme, the one I went to was Neon Paint Themed. For the set up there was a tropical palm leaf Bar on the beach, raised DJ set with awesome sound system, UV lights and crazy light show playing on the palm trees and mats and tables near the water. The entertainment was Wild! Sexy neon painted professional dancers who's moves were hypnotising, a white wall for the Live Graffiti artist! his work evolved all through the night, a fire show and lastly the DJs themselves with all different styles of music to heal the soul from stress.
I've been to the Full Moon parties in Koh Phagan but this was a completely different feel. This party was so well organised! There was effort and thought put into the party that it wasn't just a radom collection of clubs on a beach. It was set up in a way were you felt everyone was there for the same reason and that you were all part of the same thing, to celebrate the beautiful full moon. I felt safe, welcomed and full of energy! Everyone was just there to have an awesome time so we All got along perfectly! And this is not what you find on Koh Phagan.
Right next to Bangkok its the perfect way to get away from the pollution and chaos of the city. Recommended Highly!
Dress Code: Its a beach party to Swimsuit, Shorts. It also depends on the Theme of the Party.Related to:

Freshly caught and cooked seafood in a Thai fishing village on the Mae Had Ramphueng beach.
grilled shrimp with chillie-garlic sauce (goong phao)
steamed crab (poo nueng)
crab in yellow curry (poo karee)
rock lobster stir-fried with toasted garlic (kang phad grathiam)
red snapper steamed in lime juice with garlic, chillies and coriander leaves (plaa nueng manao)
deep-fried tilapia with a 3-taste sauce (plaa nin saam rod)
fried rice with seafood mix (khaao phat thalee)
A gargantuan dinner for 2 with rivers of ice-cold Thai beer will set you back about 15-18 Euros.
How to get there: 11 km from Rayong City. Catch a "song thaeo" truck-bus going to Mae Had Ramphueng. There are tens of such seaside restaurants to find there. This area is extremely popular with city-weary weekenders from Bangkok coming for some truly fantastic food.
Warning: you will really need to speak Thai there though, good luck!
