What to See/Eat/Do + Rayong beach condos for sale/rent

The Taphong Archives

Taphong is a small village in Rayong province just a few minutes down the road from Mae Rumphueng Beach and Ban Phe, Thailand.

  Don’t miss the local market!

Check out the Taphong Market Every Tuesday and Saturday afternoon through evening the Taphong Market takes place on Sukhumvit Road at the same intersection where Mae Rumphueng Beach Road ends. This is a great place to pick up fresh local meat and produce, indulge in some delicious home-cooked Thai dishes that will have you drooling, have an authentic Thai market experience (as opposed to a tourist market), and best of all to help support the local farmers — who definitely could use your money more than those chain grocery stores.

Win. Win. Win. 😉

Find out more about Taphong Market and other nightly/weekly markets scattered around Ban Phe here — plus tons more local tips and information — here on the Rayong Beach Blog!

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 😉
