Chonburi is a city in Eastern Thailand, 2 hours from Bangkok.
Chon Buri, in short "Mueang Chon", has been a popular seaside town of the eastern coast for a long period of time. It is also an agricultural site of economic plants such as sugar cane, cassava and Para rubber trees, as well as, a location of the Eastern Seaboard Development Project and significant industrial factories.

From historical evidence, Mueang Chon Buri has been settled since the Ayutthaya period. Originally, it comprised of many small towns such as Mueang Bang Sai, Mueang Bang Pla Soi, and Mueang Bang Phra. Later, King Rama V combined these towns together into Chon Buri province.
