Ranong Province:

           Ranong is one of the southern provinces of Thailand located on Isthmus of Kra. This isthmus is a narrow strip of land that connects the Malay Peninsula to mainland Thailand. Ranong is famous for getting the most rainfall in Thailand with the rainy season lasting for nearly 8 months.

              Ranong province is the least populated province in Thailand with 80 percent of the area being covered by forests and 67 percent is mountainous terrain. Earlier tin mining was the mainstay industry but now most mines are closed. Today white clay mining for making porcelain and fishing items, rubber farming and cashew nut farming are main industries of the area.

              Ranong is blessed with many natural attractions but its main attraction is its unspoilt mangrove forests. In the district of Kapoe is the Ranong Biosphere Reserve which covers an area of 303.09 square kilometers. This is the only biosphere in coast and its main objective is to preserve the mangrove forests in the area. More...
