Trang is the administrative capital of Trang Province. Trang is located inland some distance from the coastline and islands that attracts foreign visitors to the province. Trang itself is a medium sized town with around 60,000 residents. Not many foreign visitors come to Trang except on their way to and from islands such as Koh Lipe, Koh Kradan, Koh Muk, and Koh Libong. Trang town has great transport links with a railway line with trains direct to Bangkok, a large bus station and an airport.
Trang town is a pleasant place, with plenty of hotels and restaurants, as well as shops and markets. Trang also has a lot of old buildings and a long history, unfortunately virtually no effort has been made to make the town’s cultural heritage accessible to visitors with sign posting and the opening up of historic buildings, such as the very beautiful Governor’s Residence. If you have a night in Trang then definitely have a walk around the town centre. There are some old Sino-Portuguese style shop houses and an old Christian church tucked away on various side streets in Trang, along with some innovative street art. In the evenings Trang is empty, with most restaurants shutting down by 18:00 as is the case with a lot of small provincial towns in Thailand. For food after dark in Trang your best option is to visit the night market by the railway station.
