What Things to Be Done In Koh Chang

Koh Chang is the second biggest island in Thailand. The first one is Phuket. The government of Thai has recently begun advertising Koh Chang as a tourist destination for international travelers, so, go there before it turns as too commercialized! It's a place where a person may either fill his days with activities or also he can chill out on the beach.

Everyone needs to be aware, conversely, that every new growth may have some strains on the infrastructure. Also they need to keep in mind that the rainy season is quite rainy. If anyone is planning to do any diving and snorkeling, better is to go during the dry season, may be in Jan and Feb, when the water is not dirty from the storms of rain.

Chilling out

Sabay Bar on White Sand beach is the best place to relax with a cold drink watch the fire acrobatics under the fairy lights. If anyone is searching for quiet and peace though, he must go to any other beaches. White Sand beach is currently become a bustling place with music, bordellos, bars, roadworks and continual construction.

You can visit Koh Chang by boat named KonTiki.


Warm, coral reef and calm waters with lots of fishes, some squids, and yet parrot fish might be seen. Water is dirty during the season of rain. The cost of chartering your personal snorkel and speedboat costs around 10,000 baht for a single day hire. Several tour operators providing diving and snorkeling choices. A cost of 4-island-in-a-day snorkeling trip is almost 500 baht a person – which leaves around 8:30am, and back to its place at 5:30pm, comes with two lunches (e.g. rice dishes and curry, and corn and shrimp), fresh fruits, also as the usual coffee and drinking water.
