About Trat

At Thailand's east coast (northern Siam bay), one finds the relatively small province of Trat. Cambodia is next-door neighbor to the east, and many who travel between the countries select to cross the border here. The climate here can be described as pleasant as it often is slightly cooler than in the southern provinces.

Trat has rich fishing waters and consists of 52 islands. One of these is the popular tourist destination Koh Chang. The island is one of Thailand's largest and directly translated the name means Elephant Island. From the mainland, you'll reach this island after about half an hour from the mainland.

Koh Chang inland graze out covered mountains while the coast is largely lined with long beaches. On the island's west coast there are plenty of restaurants, resorts and bungalows. The east side is sparsely populated and well-suited for those who prefer to live and holiday a little more individual.
