With a steady rise in tourism on Koh Chang and the islands, Trat, the nearest mainland town, shows its own signs of creeping change.
Trat in the eastern province of the same name, is the nearest town to the Koh Chang Islands.
Most tourists bypass Trat completely but if you do end up here, you'll find it has plenty to offer and you're not going to get a slice of local Thai provincial life than a few days spent here.
Tourism is of course catered for by the wide selection of guesthouses and hotels available for overnight stays.
