Apart from charmingly beautiful scenery like its white sandy beaches and the nearby lovely islands, in Trang town, there are many more interesting things to offer.

While walking in Trang town, what you can notice is the mixture of Chinese flavor and local culture represented as the architectural heritage. The Sino-Portuguese shop houses are the dominant feature of town. All of these historic shop houses in Muang district are still used as shops except the other three buildings which are served as a Chinese association founded by the first Chinese pioneers to Trang.

Along with the Sino-Portuguese style of building, the local architecture is also featured around Trang town: Pan-Ya House. This kind of residential building is the characteristic style of house in Trang and other provinces in the southern Thailand. The house consists of two sections: the front and rear. The front normally has two floors. The first floor is again divided into two parts, the exterior part and the interior part is sectioned by a big wooden door. Behind the main door is the only vast room with high ceiling served as the living room of a family. The second floor is the space of bedrooms. This section adjoins the kitchen that is in the rear.
