Buddha View Restaurant: Exquisite Dining With Stunning Views

Buddha View Restaurant

Buddha View Restaurant

In a rather wicked spin of irony, the Buddha View Restaurant is one of only a few restaurants which specialize in local Thai cuisine. What is even more ironic though is the fact that it is quite expensive, if you’re a Thai local, with more of the international tourist market as the target group.


You may require some prior knowledge, as to the whereabouts of the Buddha View though, since it isn’t all that easy to pick out and the transport system to and from the location could be better, but it doesn’t leave all that much to be desired if you have patience as one of your virtues, or if you’re not lodging outside the range of walking distance.


Undoubtedly, the most striking feature of your possible dine at the Buddha View, is indeed the view, as the name suggests. You won’t really be surrounded by an endless canvass of the surface of the ocean, but you will get to see Koh Chang from a very unique vantage point – almost as if from an aerial shot.


The dining atmosphere is complemented by the beautifully decorated interior, which looks rather expensively assembled, making for the type of classy dining experience that leaves you satisfied for a very long time to come.


If you’re an occupant of one of the few guest rooms they have (about eight in total), and you feel the urge to share some photos of your vacation via the use of social networks and the like, then you’ll be pleased to find that the rooms have internet access, which you can access via Wi-Fi.


It’s hard to imagine you would want go online for any sort of business or work purposes though, since there is just so much “holiday-making” to do, in and around Bang Bao, with one of the activities possibly entailing a drink down at the Buddha View Restaurant, contrary to what the name may suggest concerning alcohol.

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. Klong Son gets very low numbers of visitors with the bulk of the backpackers and tourists alike speeding south enroute to Koh Chang's finer and more popular stretches of sand.

White Sand Beach is good for:

night live

sandy beach

variety of restaurants


Short description:

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.

Klong Phrao Beach is good for:

tranquil surroundings

gorgeous rocky landscape

all sorts of activities

quiet and peaceful

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.
