Koh Chang Tourist Police Division

Emergency Contact: 1155 

Regular Office Number: 039.557.382-3 


Koh Chang Tourist police Office is located in Klong Prao village in the center of Koh Chang. Look for the Main Buddhist Temple and we are about 20m north of the main gate!


The Royal Thai Tourist Police Force was established to help tourists from foreign countries to be protected and have officers who can speak foreign languages to assist them. They are an arm of the Royal Thai Police and surprisingly allow foreign nationals to join and assist them as volunteers. So don’t be surprised when a Tourist Police Officer is actually a German or Canadian citizen.

With the introduction of foreign officers it been a boon to have team-members who can speak languages here on Koh Chang from Thai, to German, to English and even Japanese! With many members creating a link between the Thai and foreign community it has been a worthwhile endevour to make peoples travels and lives here much more accommodating  and in the end safer.


The Koh Chang Tourist Police believes that you should have a safe trip and as such offers assistance with many things:

  1. Assistance with any criminal act: (ie: assault, accidents, robbery) We can interface with the local police and offer translation services.
  2. Disputes: We offer assistance with disputes between Thai nationals and foreign visitors (ie: merchant and civil disputes)
  3. Assistance with scooter and car accidents: We can help you to fill out forms, get help etc…
  4. Directions and Information: Don’t worry, we offer directions and information on what ever you need in Thailand!

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.
