Trang

Most visitors to Trang are in transit to nearby islands, but if you’re an aficionado of culture, Thai food or markets, stay a day or more. Here is an easy-to-manage, old-school Thai town where you can get lost in wet markets, hawker markets and Chinese coffee shops. At nearly any time of year, there will be some minor festival that oozes local color.

Most tourist facilities lie along Th Praram VI, between the clock tower and the train station.
