Activities along Koh Chang coasts

If you love either diving or snorkelling you are in for a super treat at the Koh Chang Island.  It has got the most amazing ‘Mu Ko Chang’ National Marine Park that spreads across 40 plus small and large group of islands that are home for beautiful coral reefs, fish and white sandy beaches.  There are many diving sites with specialised training centres along the west coast of the island that cater for the experience as well as inexperience divers.  They offer lessons and certification at the centre itself.  All gears are provided but you are allowed to bring your own.  The diving school in Bong Bao village is pretty renowned for its lessons.  You can make the necessary bookings at the desk or through a phone call to have everything organised for your trip.


If you are not into diving or snorkelling still you can enjoy the beauty of the park by chartering a boat to take you out into the waters so that you can feast your eyes on the lovely marine creatures that never fail to put up a spectacular display.  Sail off in comfort on a yatch or in a motor boat, bareboat or crewed boat whichever suits your need. In addition to these Kon Tiki the luxury boat sails in style with full board - crews, refreshment, and gourmet meal and with bar facilities giving you plenty of space to take in the entire view while keep you entertained.  There are scheduled trip every morning and the afternoon to the sea along the Marine Park.  You have to make your reservation as early as possible to avoid disappointment.


Besides this, these boats can be arranged for a fun-filled fishing tour which can be a daylong or extended over night fishing expedition. The tour comes with meals and refreshment and of cause loads of fun!

A well-sheltered bay with a small and quiet beach. It is a fishing community where residents still live in houses built on stilts and are connected by wooden bridges. There are a growing number of tourist shops, scuba dive outlets and seafood restaurants offering a good selection of seafood.
