Rayong is inviting foodie tourists on a trip back through time to sample this year's harvest in the famed fruit orchards of the eastern province.

Visitors will hop aboard trams and rafts in Wang Chan district, which is celebrated for the quality of its mangosteen, rambutans, durian and other fruit varieties.

This year’s festival will be held from May 27-31 at the fruit market in Plong Ta Iam subdistrict.
