Laem Makham


Trat province was named after Yang Krat, a tree that naturally grows in abundance around this village, which is located on the shore of Makham cape. Its residents are small fishing boat owners who are known for their exceptionally light hearted and fun-loving nature.

  • Go on a boat ride to catch lamp shells, lay crab traps and enjoy watching fireflies
  • Explore the museum to commemorate King Rama V’s visit to Trat
