I will be driving from Hat Yai to Trang eventually to Ko Lanta.
Would like to enjoy some sea and sand. Should i by-pass the town and go straight to one of the beaches? Any recommendations to which beach or resort?
Thank you in advance!
I think the nicer beaches in Trang are all on the offshore islands. If you are driving, you are better off heading straight to Ko Lanta.
You can go to Pakmeng Beach,sleep there 1 night and the day after heading to Koh Mook with a longtail and visit the emerald cave.
Thanks for the info.
I am actually driving fr singapore...
Can't decide between Ko Lanta and Trang or driving straight up to Phuket first.
Do island hopping from there then travel down to Krabi to chill some more.
Do the stops on the way back instead.
How much time do you plan to spend in Thailand? What amenities do you need?
Most of the islands in Trang are quite laid back with few restaurant options and no nightlife.
Where to go depends on what you are looking for in your vacation.
I've decided to just go with the flow, make Krabi my base (end destination)
I have about 9 days so 4 days for travelling from SG to Krabi to SG.
So yes... next thing is aqua shoes/socks.
Are they cheaper in Krabi?
Thanks a million
