With its quiet and unassuming nature, Trang, like the provinces of Krabi and Phang Nga, has a stunning coastline which offers some of Thailand's finest white sand beaches, and literally dozens of unexplored and uninhabited islands. In the interior, waterfalls, lagoons, forests, and hidden caves intermingle with rolling sweeps of leafy rubber plantations in an agriculturally rich and diverse landscape.Kopi Tasting and Marketing
