Koh Mapring (2) Island – A Place for Creative Adventures

Koh Mapring (2) Island is located at the head of Salakphet Bay. It is covered by green vegetation and blends well into the mangrove shoreline nearest to it and to the mountains of the mainland Koh Chang Island. It is a small green mound set against a green backdrop. This makes Koh Mapring (2) difficult to spot from any common vantage point. It has no enticing physical features that are worthy of great attention. The water around the Koh Mapring (2) is shallow and murky.


 Though regarded as worthless in some varying degree by many people who are accustomed to the many beautiful islands within the vicinity of Koh Chang, Koh Mapring’s (2) self-worth needs to be discovered or created. Since its surrounding waters are murky and shallow, your visit to it by kayak or boat must observe considerable distance from its shore. Going around the island by kayak in slow pace is an enjoyable activity to do. Its green and lush vegetation is a good view for meditative sightseeing. If you are a lover of nature, Koh Mapring (2) is an island of natural beauty at its simplest form.


The idea of trekking the interior of the island can be challenging but permission from the authority of Koh Chang Marine National Park must be sought. The possibility of finding rare species of animals and plants is high due to the fact that Koh Mapring (2) island is untouched by human interventions and contacts. Most of its coastal plants are mangrove species which give the island its distinct role in the protection of the bay area from strong currents or strong waves. But the island can be a good venue for tourists to enjoy a floating experience by a dropping the anchor’s boat within a vantage distance.  


Surely doing ordinary things in this small-green-mound-island away from the pressures and demands  of your work will lead you to realize your big cherished dreams.
