Kantang (Malay: Gantang) was the original capital of Trang Province, at first in Khuan Thani, and then from 1893-1916 to the coastal Kantang itself. As the area was prone to floodings the capital was finally moved further inland to its present location. The city pillar shrine (Lak Mueang) of Trang is still located at its original location at Khuan Thani.
The district is located at the mouth of the Trang River.
The district is subdivided into 14 subdistricts (tambon), which are further subdivided into 83 villages (muban). The town (thesaban mueang) Kantang covers the whole tambon Kantang. There are further further 13 Tambon administrative organizations (TAO).
