Most of the island is a national park, however the Khao Laem Ya section of Khao Laem Ya – Mu Ko Samet National Park is on the mainland at the eastern end of Mae Rumphueng Beach. Entry is 200 baht but the ticket is valid for an entire week, so make sure to check out both halves of the park.

The result is an untouched and off the beaten path Thai paradise! What would you like to know about Rayong? Read more…

About The Author

In early 2016 I came to Rayong for one week. I’m still here. My name is Derek Freal, a cubicle escapee turned professional travel blogger who spent almost 8 years as a nomad before discovering the beaches of Rayong on my fourth trip to Thailand. Although I still travel the world for work, you can find me here anytime I have a few weeks off work, exploring, eating and drinking my way around the Rayong 😉
