Why Do People Come to Visit Koh Chang?

This will be first question do people often think when they thinking to tour Koh Chang, why come here? Koh Chang is not well advertised by the residents, nor that place is well developed and not on the maps of tourists. The people visit there just for the attractions as, they love to come there.


Being off from the well traveled way of Pattaya, Koh Samet, Koh Samui etc... Actually has been a blessing for the people of Koh Chang. No Go-Go bars, hookers and hustlers, no wall to wall hawkers. For hawkers the best people of Koh Chang can do is few part time beach salesmen who are the farmers of coconut and fisherman almost every time.


You can use KonTiki for visiting the whole Island. You can’t use jet skis, banana boats they have been outlawed, no 1,000 individuals + discos, no parties of full Moon that leave behind the island a wasteland almost after every 28 days or so. People do have some short ones, occasionally, in Lonely Beach. But, most people have ignored some troubles of the recent 20 years while every place as they are off the beaten way here.


There is the only cause for that and if they wish they can read up on the private history of Koh Chang and see why they have been unexploited for extremely long.

Short description:

Klong Son beach (or Had Klong Son) is located on the north of Koh Chang. Nice bay at the very top of the island. Pure white sand stretch of beach, shaded with coconut trees.

Koh Chang's most famous stretch of sand, at over 2km long there's certainly room for everyone! Lined with bungalows, food stalls and shops this is one of the best beaches in all of Thailand.

tranquil surroundings

gorgeous rocky landscape

all sorts of activities

Short description:

Situated on the somewhat less glamorous, northern side of the Koh Chang Island, Klong Prao isn’t all that much of tourist destination, especially for those who are in need of a true holiday experience of the exotic kind.

Lonely Beach is good for:

great sunset

cheap and peaceful retreat

all sorts of beach activities

perfect for family

Short description:

Also known as Kai Bae Beach, this is the spot to catch a great sunset! A few small shops and food stalls are along the beach, a good spot to chill out away from the crowds at White Sands Beach.

Bangbao Bay is good for:


seafood restaurants



Short description:

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.

Salak Khok Bay is good for:

pretty, unspoiled area

traditional Thai community


quiet and peaceful

Short description:

There aren’t so much attraction in Salak Kok, but tourists can Kayak among the mangroves. Salak Kok Bay still has a fishing community that doesn’t change so much in many years, a great place to see the real traditional Thai community.
