04 Activities that would make your Adventure in Trang, Thailand Complete - Exploring the Scenic Wonders at Trang

Located near the stunning Andaman Coast, Trang is a scenic area with plenty of beaches, waterfalls, caves, and much more to explore. Mostly known to locals, it is now a big draw for travellers.


Visit places of worship

Trang is home to a multicultural community, and thus, is home to a diverse range of religious buildings. There are several Chinese shrines, covered in ornate detailing like wise dragons, and statues of gods and mythical figures. Wat Saingam is a great place to start if you want to see Chinese sites. Wat Tantayaphirom is a Buddhist temple which is located close to the main city. It's hard to miss the captivating, white and gold stupa, along with a replica of the Buddha's footprint. Another must see temple is Wat Phu Khao Thong. A charming monastery, where you can view a beautiful reclining Buddha statue which is said to be over thousands of years old, and the only one of its kind in Thailand.


Cycle through Had Chao Mai National Park

Cycling through the city is a great way to enjoy the scenery, plus it's a much more affordable choice of transport. You can cycling around the coast or take a tour through Had Chao Mai National Park. The national park compasses several beaches, forest areas and caves. If you plan on seeing the caves, do take a torch with you. The park is also home to several species of birds, monkeys, and wild pigs. Cycle near the coast and you'll spot fishing villages and boast out on the water. Sometimes the fisherman simply stand on bridges, casting their rods and nets out over the water in hopes of catching something for the day.


Island hopping and snorkelling

There are numerous smaller islands, known as the Trang Islands, situated just off the coast. Several reputed tour operators in town can arrange boats to take you around the islands, to explore and go snorkelling among the reefs in the clear waters. Prices can vary for each operator, but most of them do include stopping over at the larger islands and snorkelling in their itinerary. Each island has its own unique attractions - like the Koh Mook island which is known for its beautiful Emerald Cave, or Koh Libong island, which is surrounded by seagrass.


Collect shells at Had Pak Meng

The five kilometre stretch of beach is fringed with tall palm trees which provide excellent shade for walks along the beach. Several restaurants and accommodation choices, such as the Anantara Si Kao Resort, for example, a Krabi luxury resort, can be found along the beach road. Locals come here to enjoy the fresh seafood like fresh mussels, and crabs, that are served in most restaurants here. Small islets are dotted out at sea, and the soft white sands invite all to laze around sunbathing under blue skies. Wander around the beach and you will find a stunning collection of seas shells in various shapes, sizes and colours, with the odd crab intermingled.
