About Travel to Koh Chang
Koh Chang is Thailand’s third largest island, with a land area of approximately 211 square kilometres. Considering the size of the island it’s population, estimated to be between 5,000 and 8,000, is very small. Most permanent residents live in 1 of only 9 villages on island, with workers from elsewhere in Thailand living in staff accommodation provided by their employer.
Mu Ko Chang National Marine Park
Koh Chang is part of the Mu Ko Chang National Marine Park which covers an area of 650 square kilometres encompassing 52 islands. The densely forested and hilly interior of the Koh Chang has been protected, to a significant extent, from development as a consequence. People aren’t legally permitted to clear the forest for buildings or growing crops so the local population is largely confined to the outer rim of the island.
At the centre of the island is Khao Salak Phet, which is a hill rising 744 metres above sea level. Streams running down the hill form several impressive waterfalls lower down the slopes. Adventurous visitors can arrange guided walks with forest rangers to see the more remote waterfalls. The longest trekking route takes 8 to 10 hours to complete.
Where to stay in Koh Chang
Koh Chang has 4 main beaches where most of the accommodation, bars and restaurants are located. Visitors wanting to avoid the crowds altogether, particularly during the weekends which are the busiest time on Koh Chang, might want to seek out alternative spots to these four main tourist centres:
- White Sand Beach: White Sand Beach is the closest of the beaches to the main ferry piers and the busiest as a consequence. White Sand Beach has the best range of international food.
- Lonely Beach: Lonely Beach is no longer the hippie hangout that it used to be, but still has some inexpensive bungalow accommodation and late night bars.
- Kai Bae Beach: Less developed than White Sand Beach, with some value for money restaurants and accommodation in the village on the road behind the beach itself.
- Klong Prao Beach: Klong Prao Beach is the longest beach on the island. Although there are three large resorts on the beachfront, because of the length of the beach it often feels like the quietest of the four main beaches.
