Trang Province travel guide

Caves · Beaches · Gardens
The heart of Trang Province tourism lies at its long, scenic coastline. Rugged limestone cliffs and caves mingle with idyllic white sand beaches lined with mangrove trees. Just off the shore, an archipelago boasts craggy rock formations, coral reefs, and even more soft, white beaches to stretch out on. The province's lush interior holds its own natural wonders: thick forest, deep caves, dramatic waterfalls, and mountains rising in the east. Provincial capital Trang radiates culture, with its traditional markets, frequent festivals, and Chinese coffee shops. Southern Thai cuisine packs a lot of heat, drawing on a heady mixture of Indian, Malay, and Indonesian influences so that local curries burst with flavor.

The area encompasses some of the most popular destinations floating just off the picturesque Andaman Coast, including the six islands protected as a national park of impressive natural beauty. Most tours of Krabi Province include an exploration of the vertical karst formations jutting from the sea, a dramatic backdrop for water-based adventures. Although mass tourism in the province increasingly exerts pressure, many of the islands here retain a relaxed feel and offer a bit of solitude in a heavenly tropical setting.

Phang Nga Province, a coastal region, features two of the most impressive dive spots in Thailand. Situated along a limestone coastline, with smaller islands out in the bays, the area hosts a coral reef that serves as a home to a diverse fish population. Rural communities in this region are largely separate from mainstream Thai society and are made up of fishing villages on the islands or on stilts in the bays. Ancient temples, hidden in the forests inland, provide good endpoints for day hikes through the jungle.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
