Where to Go
Despite its low profile on the international tourist scene, Trang is a popular destination for Thais looking for a relaxing beach holiday. Consequently, resorts and hotels are often filled during long holiday weekends and at many times throughout the high season. If you are planning to visit during one of these periods, try to book in advance. Alternatively, in the low season many resorts and hotels close for the season because so few Thais travel to the area during that time. Again, its best to book in advance, though there are offices for many resorts in Trang city so it is typically possible to book a room there before heading to a beach or island that may either be full or shut down for several months.Most accommodation in Trang city is found near the train station and along Rama IV Road, most of which is mid-range hotels with some variation in quality, though there are a few guesthouses that provide a homier atmosphere.
