The Beach......with the south east winds blowing any pollution that Map Ta Phut has to offer inland. Study done by Bangkok Hospital confirms this!

Well.....the winds generally come from the South and go in an easterly direction....but sometimes we get south west winds ....and then there is even the Northerly winds.

The months from around May to the end of October have a rainy monsoon from the south-west, and from November through to March it's the cooler mostly dry north-easterly monsoon coming down from China. To the west of Maptaphut there isn't much noticeable pollution, which by those winds is generally blown inland or out to sea.

I have had life-long susceptibility to asthma, but living in Banchang I only really have a problem if I get a chest infection, which is only about once a year, and when that happens I've found that it's best not to delay taking antibiotics. In the tropics, if you're not careful, infections can get out of control very quickly.

Much of the pollution in and around Rayong City is caused by heavy, slow-moving traffic.

Nothing like Bangkok traffic :shock1:.....actually the traffic moves pretty good compared to Bangkok. I've lived here in Rayong City for 10 years and have NEVER seen "heavy, slow-moving traffic" :smile:

- except, perhaps when Sukhumvit is blocked on Saturdays and Sundays by the muppets trying to get in to Laemtong. But in general, I agree, Bangkok is far more poisonous, followed closely, weekends at least, by Pattaya.

We aren't discussing Monsoons...........Nothing wrong with my directions......seems you have a comprehension problem

 

"Because winds are named for the direction from which the wind is blowing, these winds are called the northeasterly trade winds in the Northern Hemisphere and the southeasterly trade winds in the Southern Hemisphere. The trade winds of both hemispheres meet at the doldrums."

If you have asthma.....why are even considering Rayong?

As one project I used to work on tanks in Rayong. Project manager. Asthma has nothing to do with it. Hard air pollution. It will kill anything. Not worth the money to live in direct smelling or by winds.

If you follow the news, there are quite a few "incidents" in Rayong.  I've got a friend who works at the local hospital in a rapid response unit.  Many incidents never make it to the news, especially the English news.

Warning. Wind often changes direction, even in Thailand. Unreliable Asia.
