Chonburi resides in the heart of the eponymous region, on the shores of the Gulf of Thailand.
Literally meaning "city of water", Chonburi recounts her long and beautiful history through her heritage, as rich as her illustrious country.
And the city is certainly packed full of attractions, both for tourists and culturally. This is a city that's passionate about music, nature and ancestral traditions that the traveler will be longing to discover.
To this end, it's easy to contemplate these very unique ceremonies of offerings to the monks at the Wan Lai Songkran Festival or sprinklings of the guru Buddha.
Chonburi's zoo also earns it its fine reputation. In a stunning natural and well-preserved setting this place is home to many rare and protected species such as the marbled cat or the Thai cheetah.
The city is also synonymous with competition, as evidenced by the fabulous Amata Spring Country Club, which plays its part in creating the city's renown. This vast complex founded in 2005 extends majestically between land and sea, in the heart of lush vegetation with perfect boundaries. Its world-famous golf course delights lovers of the discipline year on year and attracts many visitors to the central building with architecture and luxury that are so typical of Thailand.
Not far from the bustling center of the city, the radiant Bang Saen beach spreads its charms and blonde reflections out until it flirts deliciously with the turquoise water. Once there, just a simple walk along the beach feels like paradise. Everything here invites contemplation and well-being, and it does it so well that you'll quickly lose track of time. Ultimately, Chonburi is all about the inner experience, like an endless awakening of the senses…
