Direct transfer from Bangkok to Koh Chang Hotel
Koh Chang (Elephant island) is one of Thailand's most beautiful islands with long
white sandy beaches, most half deserted. It’s a second largest island in Thailand.
Having relatively mountainous landscape with beautiful beaches to the west, the
island boosts a wide range of wildlife, including variety of birds, deer, snakes,
and a number of elephants, many of which are rare sights outside of the island.
With the wildlife being mentioned, it’s never in any doubt that the main feature
of the island is the beaches and the beauty that comes with it. While the beaches
are not your pristine powder sand ones like in the Maldives or the Similan, they
certainly have their unique charm – those that you will find only in Koh Chang.
For example a lonely beach shack that serves up cocktails and let you watch the
sunset sipping your favorite tonics. Or a world class spa that tucks away in the
tropical forest that will melt your stress away with its exotic ambience.
Most resorts and hotels are on the western side, dotted along the sandy beaches,
and you can enjoy all the beach activities or head out to visit coral the reefs
and the marine life which are aplenty. If you explore further to the east you probably
won’t find your postcard perfect sandy beaches but the communities there are intact
and it makes for great home stay and eco tourism. Most part of the island is quite
undisturbed, especially the inner part, and you will find the whole range of rainforest,
wildlife, hills, cliffs, and waterfalls.
