Pattaya is the most renowned beach resort in the region where visitors can practice water-sports like windsurf, water ski or only take a sunbath or take a trip around the nearby coral islands; it was transformed into a heavy sun, sea and, unfortunately, sex destination since it was used as an R&R destination during the Vietnam War, recently the area has tried to clean up its reputation.

Other interesting places to visit include the Ko Chang Archipelago which is comprised of almost 50 islands; Bang Phra Golf Course, an international standard public course; Si Racha is a fishing community in Chon Buri Province, it is famous for its delicious seafood and fresh fruits; Ko Si Chang is an island with a peaceful atmosphere; Ko Samet remains a good place to visit, with white sand beaches, limpid waters and coral reefs making it a weekender’s favorite.

Near the zoo is located the Chan Ta Then Waterfall, a wildlife conservation area; Chanthaburi has some pleasant waterfalls and national parks such as the Khao Khltchakut and Namtok Phiui, giving a refreshing feel after the well tourist-oriented islands.
