Thailand’s Best Unknown Secret

By Davis James

After learning through numerous Thai’s raving on about Trang and how the snorkeling was terrific, I thought I much better go see exactly what the difficulty is all about and also heard fantastic reviews in a couple of Thai online forums. My wife and I went to a travel expo in Bangkok and reserved a bundle that included 2 nights accommodation, including all meals and 2 days of snorkeling.

After a 1 hour air travel we landed in Trang, it is found south of Phuket. Our resort selected us up from the flight terminal and took us to a pier for our ferry to our resort which was on a small island. At the pier I couldn’t help but observe all the rubbish that was around, the place was unclean and I was beginning to think this journey is not going to live up to the hype from my Thai friends. However after the ferry to our resort I was surprised that the rubbish had vanished. Our bungalow was located about 10 meters from the beach which was nice.

After we dropped our bags off we visited have diner, where we were welcomed with 6 recipes of fish and shellfish. The amount of meals would of feed a family. After dinner which we didn’t come close to finishing we went back to the cottage for some rest to get ready for a complete day of snorkeling.

In the 2 days of snorkeling, we had an outstanding time, there was a lot fish and they would consume rice right from our hands. We also went to a location called the emerald cave, its a small opening in the side of a mountain which we swam as a group into (with life jackets). The cave was really dark, however if you looked down the water was light blue and was giving us a few light from the representation from the sun. After about 30 meters in it just went pitch black for about 50 meters. When we got to the end of the cavern, the water brightened as there was an opening at the end of the cavern. Our guide informed us there is a little beach surrounded by high cliffs on the other side of the wall. However to get there we would have to swim under the wall for about 5 meters. I am a quite strong swimmer and it was simple for me, but we had one guy who couldn’t swim at all. We needed to make him hold his breath and 2 of us swam and pushed him under and through to the opposite.

When most of us got through we were on a beach that was about 50 by 50 meters. It was a spectacular place. I was told by our guide, that long times ago this is where pirates utilized to hide there valuables.

Once we returned out we visited lots of other areas to snorkel before we went back to our resort. It was an exhausting day.

After each tiring day we were greeted by a huge quantity of fish and shellfish for dinner. I need to state this journey did live up to the buzz. Trang is a gorgeous location to check out, I would suggest it to anybody. If you like the sun, promising meals and snorkeling, then Trang is the place to go.
