Egad! I'm going to Chonburi

Jump to last reply

I've just been asked to go on a business trip to Chonburi late July/early August. I can extend the trip for a few days before or after, but not much. What to do/where to go for those days? I am totally unprepared and I am only home for one week to get this all organized.

I have been to Thailand twice before. I've spent more than a week in Bangkok and have seen many of the major sites like palaces, wats, river, shows. I've been to Ayutthaya. Flew up to Chang Mai and did an overnight trek, visited elephants. Traveled to Khao Yai Park to bird watch and see bats, etc.

My interests are birds, natural beauty, history and culture. I have snorkeled, but do not dive. I don't like to lie on a beach. I'm not into zip lining, parasailing, petting tigers, or partying.

Is there anywhere SE of Bangkok I should travel? I'd like to hire a guide or use mass transit, not rent a car on my own. I've even enjoyed day tours, but I'm not sure if they are practical to anywhere from Chonburi. Pattaya sounds awfully touristy.

Other choice is to use BKK as the hub, travel back after work and on to...?
Last time at Khao Yai we met some folks who were going to another park down south to go birding and that area sounded nice, but I have to find where it was and if it is accessible for me on my own.

Help!
