Where are you working in Rayong ??....Map-tu-phut ?

Irrespective were you live...ie Ban Chang/Rayong proper etc...still going to cost you 2.0 to 2.5 hours to hit BKK

Ban chang is where you want to be

30 min to rayong town

2hr 15to BKK centre

15 minutes to maptaput ( you didn't mention it) but this is where most farangs work involved in petro chemical industry

40 min to pattaya

Is it distance or (I think more likely) time of travel that you're intereted in?

You could live around Mabprachan Lake East of Pattaya and still get to Rayong in rush hour in less time than living in Ban Chang.

I can put you in touch with the service that my friends used if you want. (free service that was recommended by his company)

If you are on a decent expat contract, you can get fine western standard accomodation around Mabprachan Lake- easy access to route 36, which takes you down to Rayong or links with the Bkk Tollway. And you're surrounded by plenty of expat bars and restaurants, and within easy reach of Pattaya. Nearby International Schools too.

I am partial to Si Racha and Bang Saen, but for me there are 2 big questions 1) The house --- is it really what I want and in a safe place

and 2) is there enough nearby to keep me interested during those long weeks

And they're cheaper too.

JD - Sri Racha especially is nice but there and BAng Saen are really too far away to be driving every day to Rayong, and especially back when there's more traffic on the roads.
