Koh Chang Inspiration

Koh Chang is 217 km² in size, but 75% of the island is covered by unspoiled and protected rainforest. This contributes to a very low population on the island.

Koh Chang’s tourism has increased dramatically over the last several years, and the time with backpackers who could find completely deserted beaches is almost over.

That said, most charter travel tourists choose to stay at White Sand Beach. Having the majority of tourists gathered there means that there are still many beautiful and far less touristy areas.

Koh Chang which is only approx. 5 hours drive from Bangkok and 30 min. by boat from Trat, is a tropical paradise that offers white sandy beaches, turquoise blue water, coral reefs, beautiful waterfalls and mangrove forest.

Koh Chang is located in an island group of no less than 50 islands, many of which are very little visited by tourists – and easy to get to.

Experiences on Koh Chang

Moving away from White Sand Beach, you can still experience a traditional fishing life on the south east coast. The small fishing villages of Dan Mai, Salak Khok and Salak Phet are just a short walk from some of the western beaches.

On the way you can experience the most beautiful fruit plantations with pomelo, bananas and rubber trees along the way.

If you want to experience something other than lying on the beach, then diving and snorkeling are okay on Koh Chang. Trekking to some of the many beautiful waterfalls is also highly recommended.

Scooters can be rented all over the island, and besides it offers a good and flexible opportunity to get around, it’s also the cheapest transport you will find for all the attractions.

If you are not into Scooter driving, you can hop on one of the many open pick-up “taxis” (in Thai called songthaew) which operate in shuttles around the island.

REMEMBER: Riding elephants or participating in other wild animal entertainment is NOT an attraction or entertainment (at least not for the animals) – it’s animal cruelty. DON’T support it!
