Trat

An Overview of Trat

Bordering on Cambodia with the Khao Banthat mountain range forming a natural boundary, Trat is Thailand's eastern-most province, located about 315 kilometres from Bangkok. Trat is a very important ruby-mining province, with the most famous gem market located in Bo Rai District, north of the Cambodian border.

In addition to the many islands Trat is known for, the province itself also features wonderful attractions like lush mangroves, fishing villages with houses on stilts, bays, capes and two decent beaches (Aow Tan Ku and Aow Thammachat). Lam Pu (Crab Cape) is a great place to visit if you want to sample the freshest of seafood, especially crabs.

While Ban Aow Chor features no beach, it offers a fishing village with traditional houses on stilts and fruit orchards. Lam Sok (Sok Cape) affords a panoramic view of almost all the islands of Trat archipelago as well as the Banthat Mountain range. This area is perfect for fishing, but not so much for bathing and swimming. Surrounded by wild roselles, Khao Rakam Levee is an ideal spot to relax and chill out. The levee forms a small waterfall-like pool, where visitors can bathe in. Cheap eats like spicy papaya salad and roast chicken are readily available in the area. Aow Tan Ku and Aow Thammachat are the two decent beaches on the mainland and great for relaxation as the water is clear and clean. Alternatively, visit Thai Royal Navy Memorial, where heroic deeds of the brave soldiers are immortalised. Looking for some souvenirs to take back home? Since Trat is one of Thailand’s major trading provinces, its offers several large markets selling all kinds of souvenir trinkets as well as fresh and dried seafood products, local specialties and other sundries.
