Klaeng District

Amphoe Klaeng ( in Thai: อำเภอ แกลง ) is a district ( Amphoe - administrative district ) in the southeastern province of Rayong. The Rayong province is located in the eastern region of central Thailand.


The small town Klaeng located approximately 80 kilometers from the tourist center of Pattaya. Up to the fishing village of Ban Phe, from where you can translate with the ship on the resort island of Ko Samet, is about 50 kilometers.

Neighboring districts (from west clockwise): Amphoe Mueang Rayong, the Wang Chan and Khao Chamao Rayong Province and Amphoe Kaeng Hang Maeo and Amphoe Na Yai Am Chantaburi province. To the south lies the Gulf of Thailand.


Tourism does not determine the image Klaengs, but here the agriculture and fishing plays a very important role.


In the reign of King Chulalongkorn ( Rama V ) the city ( Mueang ) Klaeng was a city of the fourth class in Monthon Chanthaburi. The old administration building of Mueang was in Ban Laem Mueang, Tambon Paknam Prasae. In 1897 the administration to Ban Pho Thong on the northern side of the temple ( Wat ) Wat Pho Thong was moved. 1908 Mueang Klaeng was downgraded to a district of the province of Rayong.


In Amphoe Klaeng there is a campus of the private Chalermkarnchana colleges.
