Destination guide

White-sand beaches and lush forests in Trat Province

Experience the breathtaking beauty and serene ambience of Trat Province in Thailand, a surefire favorite of travelers across the world. Whilst party capital Bangkok may be renowned for its nightlife, Trat Province vacation rentals offer stays in a peaceful paradise, perfect for travelers to recharge their batteries. You may want to even stay in Koh Chang, one of Trat's biggest islands, which is also part of the Mu Ko National Park. Trek through lush mangrove forests, brush up on your snorkeling and scuba diving skills for the coral reef, sunbathe on glittering beaches and enjoy delicious Thai cuisine each night.

Things to do

Find a party or ride elephants in Trat Province

Having said that Trat is the more peaceful side of Thailand, you can still find a good all-night party on Koh Chang's Lonely Beach, popular with backpackers and a younger crowd. Those coming to Trat vacation rentals to relax will want to kick back on White Sand Beach, or maybe follow the trails through the mangrove forests of Ban Salak Phet and Ban Salak Kok. Koh Chang is not known as the "Elephant Island" for nothing: there are plenty of elephant camps like Ban Kwan Chang where travelers can feed, stroke and even ride these massive but gentle beasts.

Activities

See the underwater world of Trat Province

Travelers choose Trat Province vacation rentals for the spotless shores, but there's a whole other world awaiting them underwater. There are dive schools and sites all through the island of Koh Chang, with varying prices, who cater for groups and families. Guided by an experienced professional, you can swim with the multicolored fishes that abound in the Trat archipelago, and experience the rare beauty of being immersed in clear, blue waters as the sunlight dapples down from the surface above. Or, even try wreck diving, where you dive right down to the sea floor and explore a long sunken ship.

Weather

Avoid the monsoons in Trat Province

You'll be surrounded by lush, towering vegetation and exotic fauna courtesy of Trat's tropical climate. But there's another reason for such an explosion of plant life: torrential rainfall. Luckily, monsoon season is only part of the year from May to October, and most places close at this time, so make sure you check ahead when booking. High season is from November through to April, when the paradisiacal Thailand you've heard about shines to the fore: sun and cloudless skies. All year round the temperature remains humid, coasting the 80s even in monsoon, but in high season you're looking at glorious 90s.

Natural features

A land of waterfalls and jungles awaits in Trat Province

Trat Province offers a stunning coastline and, further inland, the magnificent Cardamom mountain range, which forms the boundary to Cambodia. However, if you're looking to book Trat Province vacation rentals on the "jewel in the crown" island Koh Chang, then you can expect fertile jungles, where birds sing tantalizing notes in the soaring trees, reptiles bask in the undergrowth and waterfalls pour. Just look out for snakes. Any wildlife lover will adore the opportunities to spot local species, but for the less snake-minded, the sea offers its own inspiring marine ecology, best viewed through snorkeling or scuba diving.
