Thailand: New Motorway Opens More Tourism Destinations

A 32-km motorway opening in Thailand’s rapidly developing Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) will significantly enhance access to a broad range of new destinations, sites, and attractions in the coastal provinces of Chon Buri, Chachoengsao, and Rayong.

The motorway will also facilitate connections between Bangkok’s main aviation hub of Suvarnabhumi Airport and the airport/seaport of U-tapao in Rayong province, and enable visitors to make cross-border trips to neighbouring Cambodia.

The Royal Thai Government has identified tourism as one of the four core areas that will help transform the EEC into the leading economic zone in Southeast Asia.

The route starts at the Map Prachan Intersection between Chonburi – Pattaya, passing the Bang Lamung District and Sattahip District, Chonburi province, ending at the intersection with Highway 3, Ban Chang District, Rayong province.

Located on the northern rim of the Gulf of Thailand, the provinces of Chon Buri, Rayong and Chachoengsao are rich in tourism.
