In the South of Krabi, Trang still avoïd the tourist fever of its neighbor. Beautiful beaches, small islands, waterfalls, mountains, beautiful landscapes and accomodations more affordable than nearby Krabi and Phuket, the province has good assets. This is one of the few destinations in the South of Thailand that has preserved its authenticity. The rubber plantations also make the fame of this part of Thailand. let's hope it will last.
