Trang province has many beautiful attractions mixed with an interesting cultural heritage and is a truly fascinating Thai tourist destination with jungles, mountains, waterfalls and beautiful untouched beaches.
Trang is a magnificent coastal province with a long, beautiful shoreline that stretches 199 kilometers along the Andaman Sea. In addition, the province has two major rivers flowing through it, the Trang River, which originates in the Khao Luang Mountains and Maenam Palian, which flows from the Banthat Mountain. Despite the fact that Trang City plays a key role in facilitating trade to Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand’s southern commercial hub, Trang is a province infrequently visited by tourists such as Pakmeng Beach, which is becoming popular for Kite Surfing.
Just recently Trang has started to establish itself on the international travel map. Trang has geographical advantages similar to that of Krabi and Phang Nga. These include breathtaking islands and beaches along the coast as well as awe-inspiring inland limestone mountains.
Trang has mainland beaches and a whole string of offshore islands; the province features an archipelago in the Andaman Sea consisting of more than 46 islands. Visitors interested in light-adventure activities can cruise the coastal waters and visit notable sights, such as the enchanting Emerald Cave on Koh Muk.
Additional attractions include the nearby Mu Koh Petra National Park, where idyllic beaches and islands are the perfect places to enjoy the warm, clear waters of the Andaman Sea. Some of the diving sites in the National Park are world-class. There are also wildlife sanctuaries such as Namtok Khao Chong and Khlong Lamchan Park where waterfalls, nature trails, and caves are awaiting exploration. For those looking for a relaxed, tranquil ambience, Trang is a perfect place to unwind amidst stunning scenery.
Similar in topography to neighboring Krabi, Trang features idyllic islands with breathtaking karst formations (limestone pinnacles) and unspoiled beaches, making it the hot new destination for those looking for less developed yet beautiful Thai beaches and islands. The waters off Trang have also become a refuge of the threatened dugong, the “sea cow” cousin of the manatee. Koh Libong is one of the best places to spot these docile sea mammals which have become the unofficial symbol of Trang.
Trang city, the provincial capital, is a centuries-old seaport with a multicultural population of Thai, Malay, and Hokkien Chinese residents, a mixture that is best appreciated while dining and enjoying the local cuisine or mingling with the locals at a coffee shop.
