Trat (ตราด) is a major transit point for Ko Chang and coastal Cambodia, and worth a stop anyway for its underappreciated old-world charm. The guesthouse neighborhood occupies an atmospheric wooden shophouse district, backing on to the riverfront and bisected by winding sois. It's filled with typical Thai street life: children riding bikes, homemakers running errands and small businesses selling trinkets and necessities.
