‘Laem Sing’ is not like many of the crowded beaches on the East coast. This small district in Chanthaburi is suffused with a peaceful provincial atmosphere, with its beach, dwellings, tiny shops, small fishing fleet and quaint tourist attractions typical of the Chanthaburi lifestyle.
The Chanthaburi River flows into the Gulf of Thailand at Laem Sing, and even though it is not a pristine white sand beach, the shade of pine trees and the quietness along the beach can provide relaxation, especially in the early morning when the fishing boats set out to sea. The best spot to soak up the tranquility is on the Laem Sing Bridge, the longest bridge on the Eastern seaboard, from which you can enjoy the spectacular panorama of the river estuary.
There are also some important historical sites in the district, not far from the seaside. This area was controlled by the French Army a hundred years ago and traces of the past remain for visitors interested in history, such as the Red Building and The Chicken Dung Prison.
