Trat (Thai: ตราด, pronounced [tràːt]) is a town in Thailand, capital of Trat Province and the Mueang Trat District. The town is in the east of Thailand, at the mouth of the Trat River, near the border with Cambodia.

When the Vietnamese pushed the Khmer Rouge out of Cambodia in 1985, Pol Pot fled to Thailand and made his headquarters in a plantation villa near Trat. It was built for him by the Thai Army and nicknamed "Office 87".[1]
