Fairs and Festivals

Vegetarian Festival

is a traditional festival of the Chinese in Trang, held around October every year on a full moon night. Thais of Chinese heritage would become a vegetarian (no consumption of meat and certain kinds of vegetables) and dress in white for 9 days and nights. This is to bring good fortune and make merit. Thronghout the 9 days and nights, the spirit in the “medium” would go out and give blessing (some call it out touring) to households where there are offerings set out in front. The procession bearing the medium must light thousands of firecrakers, creating a deafening din. The medium would also perform supernatural feats to show that the spirit is in him.

Cake Festival

derives from the fact that Trang people are well known for making delicious cakes. This is particularly true for the villagers of Ban Lam Phu Ra where making cakes dates back generations. The cakes of Trang have no frosting and have several flavors like orange, coffee, three-flavored, etc. The festival is scheduled for every August. The cakes make ideal gifts.

Life Style

Manora or Nora is an art form native to southern Thailand. The performance has graceful and beautiful dance postures. The singer will sing the lyrics ad-lib. Therefore, he or she would have to be a quick thinker to find words that rhyme and that are meaningful in lyrics, dance and costume. Accompanying musical instruments include drums, cymbals, gongs, java pipes, and castanets. Nowadays Nora has developed into incorporating modern instruments.

Shadow Play is a popular art of southern Thailand. Dried animal hide is carved into drama figures like a hermit, a lord, a lead actor, a lead actress, a giant, and a clown. The figures are held up behind a lighted screen to create shadows on it. Nai Nang or the puppeteer will sing verses or narrate the performance. He must have exceptional reflexes and be able to nature the whole story by himself. Musical instruments used are the same as for Nora, with perhaps So Duang (stringed instruments) added in.

Like Pa is also called Like Bok or Like Rammana. This type of performance is different from the usual like as the performers wear other kinds of costumes. Like Pa is Popular among Thai Muslims. Only 3 performers play in a single set the whole show. However, the set will have a location name change to correspond to the story being played. Musical instruments used include 2-3 tambourines, cymbals, gongs, and pipes.

Took Took

As Trang is characterized by a lot of khuans, it is undoubtedly to walk everywhere. As a result, vehicles with engines are acceptable here. The “Took Took” is a kind of motor vehicle which has three wheels and is a strange shape. They are easily available and are completely different from elsewhere. Many people have tried to introduce other kinds of vehicles but have failed because none paid attention to them. It may be because they are accustomed to using Took Took and know they are one part of life in Trang. They are used as taxis, like in Bangkok.

The Clock Tower - a popular meeting point

In any province, one can find clock towers, but the clock tower in Trang has unique shape-it is constructed from a narrow base and grows gradually wider toward the top. It is located on the intersection of two important roads, and this is a good place to meet wherever you come from. Around the clock tower, there is a little park for sitting during the evening, in the middle of Wisatekoon Road in front of the Trang Municipal Hall. On both sides of the road there are many food and fruit stores which help relieve any feeling of hunger felt during the evening.


Both the top shops for coffee and the less popular ones, lie on every road, and also a combination of noodles, and many rice dishes. The most popular aspect is that a drink of coffee is always accompanied with many delicious foods filing the table- all of which are carefully prepared from traditional recipe which are completely different from others. The time for eating is early in the morning, late afternoon and midnight.

Roasted pork - a typical recipe of Trang

Anyone who has ever had the chance to taste the Trang roasted pork know how delicious it is and they always ask for more. In some places now it is a recommended dish!! The way the roasted pork is made is truly a traditional one; both in the seasoning mixture and in the ingredients. Roasted pork can be eaten with coffee and rice. It is also the special food of every kind of fair, festival and funeral party. For visitors, there is a roasted pork festival held in September.
