Unlike its big sister provinces of Krabi,
Pha-nga and Phuket, Trang’s tourism is on a much lower
level with little in the way of major development. That
is not to say however, that Trang has little appeal,
as it certainly does – but the tourist crowds that Trang
mostly pulls in are Thais and not foreigners.
- Ko Muk and Tham Morakot are the most prominent
points in the Trang Sea. Ko Muk is mostly occupied
by sea-facing towering cliffs to the west. Located
on the eastern side of the island is a village of
fishermen who have still maintained their ways of
life as islanders. On the island to the west is Tham
Morakot, a unique sea cave. With light from the outside,
emerald water can be seen inside the cave; it is unusual
and beautifully nature.
- Hat Yong Ling and Hat San is on the way
to Chao Mai Beach and a 2-kilometre road leads to
Yong Lin Beach. This curved beach parallels a pine
forest. At the beach’s end is a high mountain with
holes and caves that can be passed through to a cliff
with more caves and rocks similar to a fortress encircling
- Ko Chueak - Ko Waen are small islands between
Ko Muk and Ko Kradan. They are teeming with shallow
and deepwater corals and many types of fish.
- Ko Kradan is arguably the most beautiful
island in the Trang. It has an area of 600 acres.
Most of the island (5/6) is under the responsibility
of Hat Chao Mai National Park. The rest are privately
owned. The most striking feature of Ko Kradan is its
powdery white beach and crystal-clear water that permits
a decent view of the coral reef underneath that stretches
from the beach’s northern end to the coast. A variety
of colourful fish inhabit the shallow water corals.
Ko Kradan is to the west of Ko Muk and Ko Libong.
- Hat Pak Meng is at Tambon Mai Fat, 40 kilometres
from the city. The 5-kilometre long beach is in the
shape of a crescent moon. A pine forest fringes the
beach. Assorted large and small islands dot the sea,
looking like a person lying face up in the ocean.
Trang locals and people from nearby provinces like
to come here to relax and sample seafood in the restaurants.
- Namtok Ton Te is 45 kilometres from the
city. It is the tallest and most popular waterfall
in Trang with water that drops down 320 metres of
rocks. The source is in the Banthat Mountain Range.
Assorted tropical floras cover the surrounding area.
- Tham Le Khao Kop This cave is a popular
natural wonder with a stream flowing through it. The
cave itself looks like a high and steep cliff with
layers of rocks. A canal from the Banthat Mountain
Range divides into 3 waterways upon reaching Khao
Kop, 2 going around the mountain and the other flowing
through the cave under the mountain. Stalactites and
stalagmites line the cave for about 4 kilometres.
Currently the Khao Kop Tambon Administration Organization
provides rowboats for visitors to view the cave and
to be an eco-tourism and adventure activity by the
- Namtok Sai Rung This single-level waterfall
falls from a high and huge cliff. The water turns
into a rainbow as the sun shines through it.
- Koh Lao Liang These two islands, located
in between Koh Libong and Koh Petra. The color of
the sea around Koh Lao Liang is emerald green. The
sea between these two islands is deep and swift. Both
islands are big limestone mountains. There are highly
sloped cliffs on both sides. The beach has white sand.
- Koh Takiang is a small island on in the
group of south Trang islands. It is the island with
only 100 meter long beach. However, this beach is
quite clean. The rest area is covered by rocks and
hillocks. There is a lighthouse for chip in this region.
