    Peaceful place and quite informative with information in Thai and English. The 300+ years old tree (where King Taksin sit and planned his battle) was impressive and well taken care of.

    Just a typical beach that's is unusually uncrowded!! As with all beaches around the world it is littered with plastic, old shoes etc but this is common place these days. It does look like they have a clean up but the ocean will still throw up the trash that we all discard..

    Along the beach you will find food stalls that have sun shades, deck chairs and plenty of designated roadside parking. The water looks surprisingly clean compared to Pattaya.
    Not many dogs around to, but the one we saw was very friendly.
    A lot of seafood being sold at the food stalls but with how quiet it is here the seafood will be hit and miss on how fresh it is! My girlfriend took some crabs and they had a mix of old/fresh crabs. At 550b kg prepared it's not expensive and each shop will be different prices.

    Overall a nice beach to go to if you want that uncrowded feel but still have everything you need for a decent day out.

    Typical local beach, during the weekend day many families use this beach to relax swimming and picnic. In late afternoon the local restaurants are built up and many possibilities to enjoy local food on the beach. Convenient, nice. Less farang but best place to enjoy an evening atmosphere in real Thailand. Unfortunately the beach is not always clean. Rayong municipality should pay more attention. Several times also companies take initiative to clean this beach. Very popular at local community.

    Central Festival is a nice shopping mall from the Central group.
    Like in all there mall's lards of free parking space is available.
    The mall is a nice and relaxing place to enjoy yourself.
    From restaurant to a food court.
    A TOPS supermarket and a ROBINSON department store with everything you need and look for.
    There are also several temporary festivities like car promotion or OTOP promotion stands and so on.

    The variety of the stores and Restaurants is excellent. It's more a higher end shopping mall. You can find what you need.

    Hard to find, but definitely worth visiting. One hour walk and you get the idea of mangrove forest. Good wooden path. Great tower to watch sights. Small crabs everywhere. No fee.

    There are pros and cons to buying meat at Star Fresh Market.

    On the downside, meat there is not always the cheapest, because supermarket chains can afford to buy in bulk and discount.

    But on the upside, the supermarkets' butchery departments offer meat that is already cut and in many cases pre-packaged, so you have no options if you want a different cut.

    For example, Thai's like pork ribs cut into 4 or 5 cm lengths. I like to buy the whole ribs, which I then marinade and barbecue. So I buy them, the whole rib side at a time, from Star Fresh Market.

    Also the supermarkets do not offer many options, other than frozen products, when it comes to beef. I have now found a beef butcher at Star Fresh Market who I can rely upon to sell me a tender piece of beef for roasting, instead of the usual beef sold in Thailand that is as tough as old boot leather.

    And the prices really are cheap. Pork loin in Australia costs between $20 to $30. At Star Fresh Market I can buy it for the equivalent of $6 - $7.

    This week I am playing host and tour guide to friends from Australia who have not been to Thailand before. I took them to Wat Pa Pradu to show them a typical Thai Buddhist temple.

    Wat Pa Pradu traces its origins back to the Auytthaya era but many additions and renovations have been made over the years, including the temple that houses a reclining Buddha, which was built in 1981.

    The Buddha, nearly 12 meters long and nearly four meters high, is unusual in that it lies on its left side, as opposed to the usual right side. It is heavily coated with gold leaf, pasted on by generations of the faithful.

    Wat Pa Pradu is a complex of temples and buildings and with their rich red and gold colouring and ornate architecture, provide an interesting insight into Thai culture, religion and art.

    We attended the market on a Tuesday night. All the stall holders are friendly and very welcoming. It is not really the place for bartering but the prices are so good it didn't matter. Great ladies shoes options if you are size 9 and under. Lovely atmosphere.

    I like that part of Ban Phe, as it is very easy going and has lots of little Restaurants or you go buy fresh fishes from the market. Good beach for children. Banana Boats available to have some fun. Shade from the trees.

    If you are visiting Rayong make sure you take time out to visit Paknam, an ancient fishing community at the mouth of the Rayong River where it empties into the Gulf of Siam.

    It is a highly colourful sight to see the traditional fishing boats anchored in the harbour.

    If you go earlier enough in the morning (5-6 o'clock) you will see the boats unloading their catches onto the dock, and being taking into the fish markets.

    While now there are electricity lines and street lighting, it is not hard to imagine this place as it would have been 200 years ago.

    This Chinese style City Pillar Shrine was first built with wood in 1885 during King Rama III's reign before being rebuilt with bricks and concrete in 1991.

    It is open daily from 6am-8pm and is well worth a visit if you want to soak up some local culture. Please remember to act respectfully, do not smoke, and make sure you take off your shoes when you go into the actual shrine.

    City Pillars in Thailand are the embodiment of the community ethos and spirit, and as such are places where Thais come to pray, to meditate, and to ask unknown deities for blessings or good luck.
