Chonburi, in short "Mueang Chon", has been a popular seaside town on the eastern coast for a long period of time. It is also an agricultural site of economic plants such as sugar cane, cassava, and rubber trees, as well as a location of the Eastern Seaboard Development Project and a significant number of industrial activity, second only to Bangkok in industrial output.
From historical evidence, Mueang Chon Buri has been settled since the Ayutthaya period. Originally, it was 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 Chonburi Province.
