Practical guide to go and visit Trang

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. Trang town itself is not an enormous tourist attraction, it is mainly the starting point for the 46 islands in the area and the Hat Chao Mai National Park.

To find a place to sleep in Trang, go to the train station. Most hotels and guest houses in Trang are located in and around Praram IV Road between the train station and the clock tower. Accommodation in the neighboring islands are naturally more expensive.
