Trang is near to both Krabi and Phuket, and it’s easy to travel between the three provinces as well as the nearby islands thanks to regular ferry and private taxi services.
The map shows how Trang, Krabi and Phuket provinces are neighbours, connecting in a curve around Phang Nga Bay. Within the bay are the famous islands of Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta, along with Trang’s own popular islands of Koh Mook, Koh Kradan, Koh Ngai and Koh Libong.
As Trang, Krabi and Phuket each have their own airports, it make sense to fly to the airport nearest to where you want to visit. For example, if you want to visit Koh Mook fly into Trang. If you want to visit Koh Phi Phi, fly into Krabi. And if you want to visit Phuket, fly into Phuket Airport. Check 12go for flight times and prices on your chosen dates:
