Train

Trang's train station sits at the western end of town on Rama VI Road and receives two trains daily from Bangkok, departing at 17:05 and 18:30. Trang is on a spur of the main southern railway and as such if you're heading to Hat Yai or other southern destinations, minibus or bus are better options. That said, if you're heading to Bangkok, the train is close to unbeatable. Trains to Bangkok depart Trang each day at 13:30 and 17:25.

Bus

Trang's main bus station sits somewhat out, to the north of town, on Huaiyarod Road -- you'll want to take a tuk tuk to get out there. From this main bus station, buses run to all the regional destinations, along with Bangkok.

Most nearby destinations are easily reached by inexpensive public minibuses or songthaews. There's no central station for these -- transport to each destination departs from a different spot in town. Minibus tickets to the more popular tourist areas may be booked at any tourist office, and may be purchased along with transfers to ferries or speedboats if you're headed to the islands.

Minibuses depart for Krabi every hour and cost 100 baht. Pakmeng tickets are 60 baht with hourly departures and Pakbara minibuses depart every morning at 9:30, costing 200 baht.

For bookings we recommend Wunderbar on the corner of Rama VI and Sathani Road for their precise, honest and non-pushy service.

Updates from Travelfish readers

  • Trang's new bus station is now up and running. It is located on the eastern edge of town (across from Robinson's mall) on the main highway to Phattalung.

    Tuk-tuk or moto-taxi will get you there for around 50B. However, there are now 12B songthaews(?), and small coaches, which ply set routes around town, including train station to bus station / Robinson's.

Getting Around

Most of the city centre is within walking distance, but for anything further, you can hail one of the avocado-green tuk tuks or motorbike taxis that ply the city's avenues. Most fares within the city should cost around 50 baht.

If you're heading on a daytrip to the province's waterfalls or mainland beaches, consider renting a motorbike. Most tourist offices in Trang offer daylong rentals, 250 baht for manual or 300 baht for automatic. Of course, make sure your travel insurance covers motorbike riding.

Updates from Travelfish readers

  • There seems to be a scam going on with inter-provincial buses in Trang. The scam is that a tuk tuk will take you, not to the town bus station as you ask, but to a travel shop somewhere in town, where you will be offered a mini-bus to your destination. The mini-bus will be much more expensive. I was quoted 1000b between Trang and Pattani, whereas the vip bus from Trang to Pattani, from the bus station, was 200 and a few baht (forget the exact fare).

    The tuk tuk driver who took me to this travel shop refused to take me to the bus station, as we originally agreed on. I had to find a motor bike to take me to the station. Be advised.
