Wat Klang Nam and its chedi are about 2 kilometers from the Rayongtown. Erected in the heart of the island where the Rayong River flows into the sea, it is more at the water's edge than in the middle of the water as its name in Thai suggests. Standing at a height of about 10 meters, it is reported that the chedi once served as a landmark for sailors to announce their arrival in Rayong.

The ten meters high belle shaped chedi is located in the sub-district of Pak Nam, on the edge of Rayong city on a square paved with terracotta tiles. It is said to have been built in 1873, when Phraya Sri Samut Pokchai Chitsongkram (known as Ket Yomjinda) served as the governor of Rayong.

This is not an essential visit in Rayong but more than the chedi, the surrounding mangrove area is interesting to visit by walking on the wooden footbridges. Try to revive the ecosystem, the locals have set up small ''crab condos'' there.
