The capital of the Chonburi province and located on the coast of Gulf of Thailand, this town is a scenic delight. At a distance of around 60 km from Pattaya, make sure you visit Chonburi if you want to avoid the touristy crowds of the former and immerse yourself in the rustic and tranquil pleasures of the latter. Start your tour with an exploration of Buddha mountain. This 130-meter high mountain is visible from miles away and is the first sign that you have arrived in Chonburi. Soak in the tranquility of this place, take a stroll around the different landscaped gardens, spend some time by the lotus pool or simply sit back and relax.
Up next, head to one of the many tribal villages located on the outskirts of the city. One of the most intriguing villages is Long-necked Karen. Originally from Burma, these people settled here way back. They are famous for their long necks which are supported with a system of golden rings from their birth.
After a cultural and tribal exploration, head to Koh Sichang for its pristine beaches and dense forests. Here you can kick back and relax sipping on cocktails or take a tour of this small island.
