Resting in the south of Thailand, on the western coast of the Andaman Sea, Trang borders Satun, Phatthalung, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Krabi provinces. Made up of hilly mainland area and 46 islands, the province features two mountain ranges, Khao Luang and Banthat, which are the sources of the Palian and the Trang rivers. Along the area’s southern border lies the Mu Ko Phetra National Park.

Historically an important sea port, Trang features long stretches of beach and lush forests. The natural wonders of Trang Kao are one of the province’s highlights, featuring rivers, mountains and caves. Many Chinese merchants settled in Trang two or three generations ago, and this has resulted in an interesting cultural mix. While Thai is the dominant language, Chinese beliefs are still practiced and the local cuisine is a tasty blend of the two cultures.

Trang boasts an excellent tourist network, featuring its own airport and being well connected to the rest of the country by rail and road. A decent selection of accommodation can be found including beach bungalows and guesthouses.
