Koh Chang

Our beach nest

Our beach nest

 

So our trip from Bankok to the island of Koh Chang was very uneventful I'm glad to say.  We made it in the evening and checked into some cheap beach huts costing only 400 baht per night (bout $12) and it came complete with cockroaches the size of small dogs. 

The next day we upgraded to a 600 baht a night place that was much nicer but ended up staying awake until 4am due to the crazy loud music being played on the beach.  Finally we hit the jackpot, we moved to a hut that was on the water for only 900 baht with A/C and breakfast that was located on a beautiful beach. 

It was a pretty sweet deal.  We then spent an entire week doing nothing and it was wonderful. We rented a 135cc scooter for the duration and used it to motor our little slug bodies to and from our beaches of choice (if we chose to leave our beach) and managed to only crash it once during our stay. 

That's pretty much all there is to talk about our little vacation from traveling...pure bliss and relaxation!

Klong Son Beach is good for:

peace and quiet

sandy beach

fishing

 

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

shopping

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:

fishing

seafood restaurants

shopping

nightlife

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

kayaking

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.
