Beautiful city along the Gulf of Thailand seashore. You can easily find and enjoy cheap delcious seafood all over the town.
The airport taxi service is not a cheap one. Price just to go into Trat from the airport was 500 Baht per person in a mini-van shared with as many people that could fit.
Prices higher depending where else you go.
It's verybeautiful place here you can feel all day you stay. Not only clean brach but quiet and heard sound of nature.
Trat is small but wonderful place because it has clean beach and you can take a boat to the island such as Koh Chang, Koh Mhak, Koh Kood and Koh Lao Ya.
And you can have fresh seafood with resonable price.
Trat is a small town with not much to do,but Koh Chang is just offshore and is a great island if you like to relax on the beach and eat lots of seafood.
Trat is the end of East Thailand and it has been returned to Thailand at Early 20th Century, it has commemorates 125 years return to Thailand.
You've got to visit many of the islands, some are still pure and a lot less traveler than other part of Thailand.
We went to Koh Mak and stay at "Lazy Day, The Resort". There are many marine creatures right at the beachfront with just a few steps into the sea. The sea is very calm and clear our young children love it here. There is a black sand beach which there are only 5 beaches like this in the world! There are many historical places that we didn't get to see. They are located around city center.
A good place for family travel, nice local people, many nice islands and diving. Seafood is fresh and not too expensive.
We only stayed one night. We ate out and had simple nice local food that we felt was great value. Not a huge level of English in the town but they made an effort and were very friendly.
