Trat Province
TratTrat is Thailand’s eastern-most province, located about 315 km from Bangkok. This small province borders on Cambodia with the Khao Banthat mountain range forming a natural demarcation. With 52 large and small offshore islands, long white sandy beaches and unspoiled coral reefs, Trat offers delightful scenery and a tranquil hideout for nature-lovers. The province also serves as a major fruit-growing and fishing area

The city of Trat is a starting point for Koh Chang island group or forays into outlying gem and Cambodian markets. Those enthralled by shopping will be delighted as Trat has more markets for its size than almost any other town in Thailand due to Cambodian coastal trade.

Like Chanthaburi, Trat is a very important ruby-mining province, with the most famous gem market located in Bo Rai District, some 50 km north of the Cambodian border. With an area of 2,819 sq km, the province is administratively divided into the districts of Mueang, Khao Saming, Laem Ngop, Khlong Yai and Bo Rai, and the districts of Trat Province Koh Chang and Koh Kood.
