Trang is the one of the southern provinces of Thailand. In the past, the name of trang was tarang because tarang is the name from Malaysia, then Thai people don't like to said tarang, because it's too long so they mix it into 1 syllable. Trang used to be a port involved in foreign trade. And was the port of transportation. Trang is connecting with Nakornsritammaraj Province. Trang was the first city where rubber trees were planted. Governor Phraya Ratsadanupradit Mahison Phakdi brought rubber from Malaysia and planted it here before anywhere else in southern Thailand in 1899. Rubber is now consider an important produce of Thailand. The important Rivers that flows through the province, there are Trang River and Palian River. The rivers flow between the Khao Luang mountain range and the Banthat mountain range. The province has an area about 5,000 square km. It is located on the Andaman Sea, and contains 46 islands together with the mainland area. The most of the area is hills. Trang is the good place at southern to travel. The best time for sea travel is during October to May because another time is raining. When the raining come it will has the storm. Trang has a short history because trang is not the war city or old city. And before Trang is just the community.

"Trang (also Muang Thap Thiang, Thai: ตรัง) is the one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand" doesn't seem to be correct. "Muang Thap Thiang" seems to be the name of the capital trang only, NOT used for the whole province. see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trang เมืองทับเที่ยง = mueang tab tiang --Scyriacus (talk) 10:18, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
