Koh Lao Klang – Distinctively Unique

The island of Koh Lao Klang is one of the three islands off the southwestern portion of Koh Chang that belongs to Salakphet group of islands. It is rarely known by its real name as it is linked by a footbridge to the larger island of Koh Lao Nai and so mistakenly regarded to be part of Koh Lao Nai which is just a few meters away northwest. It takes more or less 10 minutes to walk from the island of Koh Lao Nai to reach Koh Lao Klang Island via the wooden footbridge. 


Koh Lao Klang is relatively a flat island. The footpath around it enables tourists to have some good tours of the entire island and enjoy its natural surroundings of green vegetation. Doing brisk walks or light jogging during early morning is also a healthy fun thing to do. The seabreeze is just refreshing to the lungs! At its eastern portion you will find small sandy beaches which are suitable for private activities like swimming, beachfront sightseeing, sunbathing or enjoying the view of the surroundings on a couch. Koh Lao Klang has some areas for snorkeling. Its seabed is underwater to diverse marine life of corals, clams, fishes and others.


The underneath tapestry of natural beauty is worthy of snapshots using your underwater camera. Up close encounters with some variety of fish are amazing. They appear tamed and comfortable with scuba divers. You can even slightly touch their scales while feeding them. Some of the island’s shallow waters can be suitable venue to practice kayaking or the real fun adventure of doing it under the clear blue sky.


The rocky shoreline on the western side of Koh Lao Klang Island appears a dominant view especially at low tide. Just a few meters off it you can do line fishing overboard. Going around by kayak gives you a glimpse of the coastal surface of the entire island. The condition of its environment mirrors the way nature nurtures and preserves Koh Lao Klang Island.
