Trat Airport (TDX) was the third and latest airport built by Bangkok Airways, the first two being Koh Samui and also one in Sukothai. The little Airport in Trat Airport makes travelling down to the south eastern part of the country much more convenient these days. 

Originally built in 2002, it started operations on March 31, 2003, Trat Airport’s was built to ease the journey to the capital Bangkok, reducing the 6 hour travelling time originally by road, thus enabling the traveler to fly down or up in less than forty minutes.

Like the other airports built by Bangkok Airways, the architecture of Trat Airport’s open-air terminals are built in the same principle as Samui and Sukothai -as they all capture the true spirit of Thai culture and way of life,  as well as the surrounding environment,  showing the spirit of genuine respect for the local people, culture, and surrounding environment. 

Trat Airport’s aim is to expand commercial interests with the other eastern provinces of Thailand and also the neighboring Chantaburi province. Trat Airport also serves as a hub to the popular Island resort island of Koh Chang, as well as the smaller and neighboring isles here too. 

There is only one terminal at Trat, there is a small Snack bar available for refreshments, you will find passenger trolleys near the entrance of the airport and there is a small garden outside for those interested. 

Trat Airport is in the town of Trat and was built and is operated by Bangkok Airways. The airport has one runway with a small tarmac and an open-air terminal; there are not many more beautiful airports in the country than the one here in Trat.

Trat is Thailand’s eastern most provinces stretching all the way down to Cambodia, and situated 315 km from Bangkok. Bordering on Cambodia, Trat is home the beautiful mountain range called Khao Banthat which providing a distinctive natural partition between the two South East Asian countries. 

Trat has over fifty islands in the province of Trat with Koh Chang being by far the largest; in fact Koh Chang is the second largest of all the islands in the country only Phuket Island is bigger.

The Trat district is also a major player in the agriculture business and flourishing in fruit-growing and fishing markets. 

Koh Chang being the favorite island in the area, with its pure white fine sandy beaches and untarnished coral reefs, home to spectacular marine life, the diving here is very good -with some good wrecks here too.

Another beautiful place to visit is Koh Kuud which is unspoiled. The island has several beaches on its west coast, this island is well worth a visit, and it is pure paradise, a getaway from the norm, the phrase ‘take it easy’ was actually born here.

Koh Chang is the largest of the islands in the Koh Chang National Marine Park, most of the area is covered in lush rain forest and the small mountain range of Khao Jom Prasat reaches 800 meters high into the clouds, offering up spectacular view of the area. 

There is also an abundance of wildlife in the hills, here you can see if you are quite of wildlife; local deer, beautiful colorful birds, snakes and wild boar even Elephants roaming.
