Trang

Getting there and away

Air

Trang's domestic airport is around 6km to the south of town and is served by the Thai low cost carrier, Nok Air, which runs one flight daily between Trang and Bangkok. See the Nok Air website (http://www.nokair.com) for more information.

    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.

        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.
