History

Rayong was mentioned in the Thai history during the late Ayutthaya period, when the former capital was razed to the ground by the invading Burmese. At this time Phraya Tak, later to become King Taksin of Thonburi, led a band of patriots and broke out through the cordon of besieging troops who has surrounded the capital.

Then he made this way towards the coast stopping in Rayong to build up his navy before proceeding on to Chantaburi.  Because of his courage and bravery, the soldiers and local populations anointed him as "King" in Rayong.

Once he has built up sufficient troop strength, Phraya Taksin returned to Ayutthaya and routed the Burmese and set up a new capital in Thonburi.
