Add a Point to the Map

Ranong is a town at the Northern Andaman Coast in the South of Thailand.

A small border town with limited tourist influence and hence still quaintly Thai. Border access via boat to Kawthoung in Myanmar allows visas to be renewed.

Ranong is the first southern province on the western coast, located 568km from Bangkok. It is also known for the long rainy period, which lasts for 8 months each year. Ranong occupies an area of 3,298 square kilometres, with the Kra Isthmus which is the narrowest part of the Malay Peninsula, and is bordered by Myanmar and the Indian Ocean to the west. Within its compact area, Ranong contains various natural attractions and is blessed with hot springs and unspoilt mangrove forests.
