General Information about Trat

The city is essentially a gate to the Koh Chang, Koh Mak, Koh Wai and Koh Kood islands or to Cambodia. It is a typical provincial town with few tourist attractions but not without charm. Go see the Night Market you will immerse in authentic Thailand. The little curiosity of Trat is the yellow oil, nam man luang which has the reputation to cure all ills.Its secret of fabrication is kept from generation to generation. (To ask for it at the pharmacy say: pom yak su nam man luang)

Weather & climate in Trat

Trat has a tropical monsoon climate with little variation in temperature throughout the year. Precipitation, on the other hand, varies considerably from season to season. Initially infrequent during the short dry season (December to January), they become rapidly torrential during the monsoon (from May to the end of October). February, March and November are months of transition during which, depending on the year, it can rain more or less.

The best time to come to Trat is from December to March, with the driest months being December, January and February. From May to the end of October, it is better to choose another destination. Precipitations flirt with the 500 mm from June to September.
