Bridge Over Prasae River New Attraction of Rayong

          "Prasae River Mouth" is located at Pak Nam Prasae Sub-district, Klaeng District. From Klaeng, travel eastwards along Sukhumvit Road about 12 kilometers to Prasae T-junction, and then turn right into Prasae River Mouth. Pak Nam Prasae Sub-district has been a community along the river since the Ayutthaya period, where Prasae River partitions the sub-district. Currently, the Department of Rural Roads constructed a ferroconcrete bridge across Prasae River to connect between Ban Sam Yaek, Pak Nam Prasae Sub-district, Klaeng District, and Ban Saem Son, Noen Kho, Klaeng District, Rayong Province in order to develop the road network for travelling the east coast, allowing residents and visitors to travel from Rayong to Chanthaburi and Trat. It is expected to be completed by April. This will be a new attraction. If you stand in the middle of the bridge, you will see the sea of Prasae River Mouth which is so beautiful.

          There is also nearby tourist attractions, such as the Shrine of Somdet Krommaluang Chumhon. The shrine is located on Prasae Riverside. Inside the shine, a life-size statue of Admiral HRH Krom Luang Chumphon Khet Udomsak, the Father of the Royal Thai Navy and is revered by people; Prasae Royal Frigate is on the Hat Dam or Dam beach on Prasae River Mouth. It is a discharged frigate which villagers brought them here as a remembrance and for study. Also this place will be developed as a place for vacation with a path and route for walk and for relax; a mangrove forest observing walkway, Thung Prong Thong, is located in Moo 7, Baan Saem Phu. It is a wooden walkway built from the village fund, stretching long and traversing along the mangroves, across the roof of the forest that has in turn become yellow and gold fields to meet the end of Thung Prong Thong Walkway. The bridge spans to end at Prasae Sea.
