Thailand - South Region - Trang Province

Trang is the one of the southern provinces of Thailand. Positioned wholly on the western side of the Malay peninsular in the Andaman Sea. South of Krabi province - Trang has borders with three other Thai provinces: Nakhon Si Thammarat, Phatthalung and Satun. Trang is divided into 9 Amphoe (districts): Muang Trang, Huai Yot, Kantang, Na Yong, Palian, Ratsada, Sikao, Wang Wiset and Yan Ta Khao, plus one King Amphoe (minor district) - Hat Samran. These are further subdivided into 87 Tambon (communities) with around 700 Mubaan (villages).

Not fully on the tourist map yet, Trang province contains probably some of Thailand 's best 'undiscovered' jewels. About two thirds of the province has deserved National Park status. Trang is slowly beginning to attract more foreign visitors to its peaceful beaches, offshore tropical islands with coral reefs and pristine inland forested areas with beautiful waterfalls and intriguing limestone caves.

Amphoe Kantang originally housed the capital Trang and it was an important sea port of southern Thailand. According to history the ships always arrived in the early morning, - Trang derives from the Malay word for dawn. The area used to flood heavily during the monsoons so the capital was moved over 25 km inland in the early 1900's

The province also contains about 45 Koh (islands) besides the mainland area. There is very little low lying ground except at the coast. The province is mainly hill and mountains. The ranges of the Khao Luang and Banthat mountains are the sources of the rivers Trang and Palian, the two main rivers of the province.

If you are looking for new adventure try the Chao Mai National Park or the Morakot Cave on Koh Muk.
