The Andaman Coast is often the gateway to famous Thai islands like Ko Lipe and the closest being Ko Muk. The city itself has its own airport and services airlines like Nok Air airlines. The airport is only 7 km from Trang town center and provides great flights to lots of destinations like Bangkok. Although there is not much to do in the airport, the surrounding areas are teeming with life and plenty of fun adventures, whether you want to enjoy yourself in the jungle or relax on the beaches and sail to the infamous Thai islands.

Trang is most certainly one of Thailand's magical undiscovered hideaways, boasting tropical islands with secluded beaches, clear water, and towering cliffs. With its quiet and unassuming nature, Trang, like the provinces of Krabi and Phang Nga, has a stunning coastline which offers some of Thailand's finest white sand beaches, and literally dozens of unexplored and uninhabited islands. In the interior, waterfalls, lagoons, forests, and hidden caves intermingle with rolling sweeps of leafy rubber plantations in an agriculturally rich and diverse landscape.Kopi Tasting and Marketing

Here is an old-school Thai town where you can easily get lost in the markets, and the many late-night Chinese coffee shops which are known for the locally grown, wood-fired Robusta coffee, better known as kopi. No matter what the time of year, there will most likely be some type of festival going on that oozes local colour. Most all tourist facilities are located along Praram VI, between the clock tower and the train station.
