Introducing Ko Libong
Trang’s largest island is just 20 minutes by long-tail from Hat Yao. Less visited than neighbouring isles, it’s a gorgeous, lush mountainous pearl, wrapped in rubber trees, thick with mangroves and known for its captivating flora and fauna (especially the resident dugong) more than its thin reddish-brown beaches. The island is home to a small Muslim fishing community and has a few resorts on the west coast. Libong's scruffy sweetness and backwater charm has a way of making you feel humble, grateful and open, if you let it.
