  1. Is there any Trang town news?

    Thanks a lot, Rhys... A Mexican restaurant in Trang is a nice surprise.
  2. Is there any Trang town news?

    Thanks a lot for the report, Rhys! It made my day.
  3. Is there any Trang town news?

    Wow, Joosesis, thanks a lot for the report and comments. ( BTW, I did find some favorable reviews from a tourist about 4 years ago here: http://www.lashworldtour.com/2013/06/trang-thailand.html http://www.lashworldtour.com/2013/07/guide-tropical-islands-trang-province-thailand.html ) I think I've found my destination in Trang town. The only thing left is to dream, scheme, and plot to get back :-) The first step would be to go over with wife and kids for a week or 2 of vacation next summer...

    I am in Kansas outside of Topeka, where I was born and raised. I moved away in my late teens, experiencing the world, so being back here is pretty cool - for awhile.

    Petermilk, I did the same. Built a house for my wife in her village that we could stay at when we visited - from Singapore or Phuket - and also put rubber trees on 10 rai of land that are ready to tap this year or next. The house has turned into a bit of a community center and my aim with the rubber trees is to provide her immediate family and cousins with a bit of income. I don't expect anything from any of it, just to help. Rhys, let me know what's up when you visit. Phuket Town was great 10 years ago when I lived there, but from what I understand from a good friend, all that home-town feeling is gone and it's overrun by Chinese tourists, traffic, pollution, etc. Since Trang is so close to Huay Yot, it looks attractive to me and it's off the tourist radar so far. Thanks both of you for the comments. I miss so much waking up in the morning, going out on the balcony with a cup of coffee, and looking out over the jungle hillside. And have that feeling with a huge smile on my face that I am in Thailand.

    Thanks a lot for the response, Petermilk. My wife's family enclave is about 10 km west of "downtown" Huay Yot.
  7. Is there any Trang town news?

    Hi All, I have been back to the States from LOS for 8 years, and am planning my return in 3 years or so. My wife's village is 30 minutes from Trang town, and for sure I am not going to settle down and live in her village year round. It seems like the best strategy would be to live in Trang town. I've hung out there cumulatively for a total of 3 weeks or so, one or 2 days at a time. There's not much Trang news on this Southern Thailand forum, but please let me ask: "Is there any news about Trang from somebody who lives there, has lived there, or anybody that has recently visited it or passed through?" I am thirsty for any Trang town news. I envision enjoying the nice weather, a short drive to the beach occasionally, do some - but not a lot of - work via the Internet, and hopefully be able to have pizza or Mexican food once every week or 2. Opinions? Thanks in advance, Steve
