Koh Chang - Thailand

National parkIn 1982 the island together with 50 surrounding small islands was protected as the Mu Ko Chang Marine National Park. About 85% of the island is part of the national park, mostly the rain forest in the interior of the island. Nearby coral reefs are also contained within the National Park. Notable animals in the park include the stump-tailed Macaque, the small Indian Civet, the Javan Mongoose, and 61 resident bird species. The Koh Chang Wart Frog (Limnonectes kohchangae) was originally thought to be an endemic species, but has now been found on the mainland as well.

SHAIA :

i am going to come to pattaya next week i wana know if it is worth to go to koh chang for 2 night,or it is similar to nearer island such as koh sumet ,or koh lan.

"never been there"

"Koh Chang (Elephant Island due to its shape) is beautiful and relatively unspoilt, there are no high rise buildings and the majority of the island is national park. Go to White Sand beach, beautiful, and the Fishermans village which is built out on the water superb seafood, hire a motorbike and tour the island, some great small chalet type hotels along the same coast as White sand beach. Enjoy"
Thilina Guluwita :
"Ko Lan would be more beautiful"

"There are some very recent, 2 weeks ago, photos of the Koh Chang beach at. Click on photos, then beaches. I just saw this the other day on this website. Koh Chang is very nice, lots of friendly local places to hang out and a beach that does not scream commercialism and gives you a chance to unwind. I got a room there with A/C, Refridgerator and TV, nice and clean, for 450 baht per night. Cannot beat that!.Very beautiful and you can rent a moped to get around the whole island which is beautiful. Many things to see and do."

I will visit Koh Chang in mid November and am wondering where should I book a hotel, on Kai Bae Beach or White Sand? I like quiet and peaceful beach (no jet ski or noisy boats) with facilities like Pattaya (beach parasols and chair, food vendors). Can you recommend? Any travel tips about their beach? Thanks.

KRK :
"Koh Samet or Koh Samui will be a better choice for you, I think."
Natta Thailand :
"Hard Sai kaw or White Sand Beach is the most beautiful beach of koh Chang,Kai Bae beach is not very nice,I ever visited there.White Sand Beach (Haad Sai Khao) is one of the longest beaches on Ko Chang. Bungalows and resorts of reasonable price are easily found. At the back of the beach are orchards of coconut trees and forest. The beach is easily accessible due to many roads passing to it. The name suggests scenic beauty of the area. Please visit tour trip at:"
African Farmer :
"White Sand Beach (Had Sai Khao) is the most developed (crowded) beach, with resorts building swimming pools right down to the high water mark. That is not the place to go for peace and quiet. Kai Bae has gone totally commercial over recent years and the beach was always quite rocky. Instead, try Siam Beach south of Kai Bae or Had Klong Phrao just north of Kai Bae."

I'm interested in staying at the Grand Cabana on Koh Chang. If you've stayed there, please let me know what you thought. Thanks in advance.

Richie B :
"I stayed there about 5 years ago. Thailand is a very interesting place and my experience was good. As for the hotel, it's not a bad choice."
Bicycle Repairman :
"its very clean and not too expensive I would recommend it"

Along a winding, and dangerous looking asphalt road on Koh Chang, our to public transport converted Toyota pickup transports six fellow tourists and me to Baan Kwan Chang by way of Khlong Prao Beach, a white, sandy beach now dotted with new building projects including resorts, hotels, and a whole host of shops.

Hab jetzt von mehreren Leuten Orten gehört das Koh Chang nicht der idealste Platz fürs Tauchen sein soll! In meinem Lonley Planet steht aber das es dort total toll sein soll! Was meint ihr lohnt es sich dort einen Tauchgang zu machen oder nicht und wenn ja könnt ihr dort eine Tauschule empfehlen und wie teuer ein Tagesausflug?

Habe vor 7 Wochen nach Thailand zu fahren! Nach meiner jetztigen Reiseplanung werde ich etwa nach vier Wochen auf Koh Chang sein und von dort aus würde sich ja wahrscheinlich Kambodscha als Visarun abieten. Was meint ihr dazu ist die Grenze zu Kambodscha O.K. oder sollte ich lieber wo anders hinfahren?
