It is impossible to speak of Trang without getting an imaginary sweet scent of their mouth-watering glazed roast pork. In addition to their flavorsome food that can be found at every street corner, Trang is also famous for underwater weddings and has been a witness of the love of couples from all around the world.
A coastal province with 200-kilometer shoreline and astonishing islands scattered in the beautiful Andaman Sea, Trang is a perfect destination for beach lovers as well as deep sea divers. Often times at these world-class dive sites, lucky tourists are greeted by Dugong or sea cows, an endangered cousin species of Manatees. Furthermore because of the limestone nature of its lithosphere, Trang offers impressive waterfalls and caves to be explored at different sites both inland and offshore.
You can tune in your inner historian while walking around the city of Trang to see the old buildings of Sino-Portugese and ancient Chinese influences. Snap a selfie with the first Para rubber tree in Thailand, too, because without it, Thailand would have lost billions of baht from our gross income annually. On weekends at night, enjoy the walking street where hundreds of food vendors can be found together with handmade souvenirs, local products, and children singing and dancing on the side of the street for some extra change before going to school the next morning.
If you are not in a hurry, take a train from Bangkok and enjoy the breathtaking scene along the track which only takes 15 hours. You can take an overnight train in the evening and wake up to the fresh air of Trang the next morning as well. The best time to visit Trang is from December through May and do not forget to pack your sunscreen.
