Hat Laem Sing Beach in Chantaburi ProvinceOne of the main advantages of the Chanthaburi beaches, is that most of them are snuggled close to each other in a single area of the coastline - which in itself is home to same rather nice coral reefs.

Glass Bottom boats are the way to see these to effect - or there is snorkeling an diving. Both these water sports or pursuits are well catered for at the beaches, and also further inland in the city, by way of all-in tours.

Enough accommodation exists in the area to cater for the relative small number of visitors to the province's beaches.

This will either be hotel/guest houses or bungalows to rent for short periods if you feel like getting away from it all to peace and tranquility.
