The area encompasses the coastal provinces of Chonburi, Chachoengsao, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat, and the further you go from Bangkok the better the beaches get. Geographically the smallest of the five regions of Thailand, Eastern Thailand contains just seven provinces.
Five of its provinces border the Gulf of Thailand, and three share borders with Cambodia, all of which have at least one international border crossing. Fruit is a major component of agriculture in the area, and the region’s coastal location has helped promote the Eastern Seaboard industrial development, a major factor in the economy of the region.
