Everything You Need to Know about Trang

Not geared up for mass tourism Trang is an undiscovered paradise with many stunning beaches.

Located just a couple of hours drive south of Krabi, new roads and an airport have made the province more accessible over the last few years, but tourism still remains low key.

Each year on Valentine's Day, the Thai Airways Trang Underwater Wedding ceremony at Koh Kradan, attracts hundreds of visitors to watch couples don masks and snorkels to exchange vows in the clear waters of the Andaman Sea!

Trang Beaches & Islands

Trang's superb beaches and dramatic limestone formations offer excellent opportunities for kayaking. The coastline hides a multitude of caves and incredible interior lagoons - each with their own eco-system which can be explored when the tide is right. Some islands like Ko Libong, attract migratory birds, others like Ko Kradan - an unseen paradise.

Paddle around these lovely islands with local kayaking experts. Trips are suitable for both experienced paddlers and complete novices, with instruction given where required. In low season (May-Oct) the Trang area is recommended for experienced paddlers only. During high season (Nov-April) It's perfectly calm and safe. 

Adventure & Sightseeing in Trang

Put on your walking shoes and head inland for Trang's leafy canopy. An interior of waterfalls caves and rivers awaits - providing perfect opportunities for trekking and adventure. Some caves can be explored by boat! Currently the Khao Kop Tambon Administration Organization provides rowboats for visitors to view Khao Kop Cave - a natural phenomena (nearly 4 kilometres long!) Local tour companies also operate eco-tours through the cave. Trang's cascading waterfalls are truly a sight to see with some like Tone Teh Waterfall in the Palian District, where the water falls 320m.

Trang Hot Springs

The natural hot spring located around 10 kilometers from Kantang has a constant temperature of 60°C - it's one of a number of hot springs in the area.
