Where to stay in Trat

Trat

Room rates seem frozen in the 1990s at many of the small guesthouses found around Trat’s old town streets of Rhak Muang and Thana Charoen.

Those seeking creature comforts and more style will also find solid choices in the flashpacker range.

Under 600B
Artist’s Place
Backpacker - Under 600B
East end of Thana Charoen Rd, Trat
T: (082) 469 1900

The creation of a local artist who also painted many of the murals adorning Trat’s old town lanes, the Artist’s Place goes beyond a funky first impression to offer quality rooms in a few different flavours. You’ll start by inquiring at the associated cafe, Pier 112, which is worth a visit for the food and lounge-y ambiance even if not staying. It stands beside the canal on the south...

James Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under 600B
West end of Rhak Muang Rd, Trat
T: (087) 137 9983

More of a homestay than a guesthouse, James Guesthouse occupies an old wooden house owned by a personable older woman offering three rooms that are some of the cheapest in Trat. Marked by an easy-to-miss sign near Rhak Muang Road’s western end, the house is accessed through a short tunnel-like alley marked by signs welcoming “happy people” who are “sabai sabai”.
