Trat, a small village town in the eastern part of Thailand. Nevertheless, it is a major transit point situated on a crossroad between the capital, one of the largest islands in whole country and Cambodia. People tend to use it as a base before entering Cambodia or just after entering Thailand. Most of them also visit nearby Koh Chang island as it is a huge traveler’s attraction.
Already local Belgian man who now owns a guesthouse in Trat explained us why he moved here. And we could understand him perfectly, the town really is underrated. It reflects what Thailand is really about, here we were able to glimpse into the old-world charm. Most of the guesthouses occupied the atmospheric wooden shophouse district, backing on to the riverfront. From which many opened the restaurants inside and did not change much in general. City is still filled with typical Thai street life like children riding bikes and many small businesses selling trinkets and necessities.
Best of luck planning your holidays in Thailand!
