koh Chang Island

  • Located 270km souteast of Bangkok in the Gulf of Thailand, koh Chang is about a three hour drive from the new suvarnabhumi airport and very close to the regional airport of Trat. Koh Chang is close to the Cambodian border and is part of a range of 52 islands that are off the coast of Trat, like a string of sparkling jewels. The island is 30km long and 14km wide, but most of the resorts are along the west side of the island.
    From Trat you have a fifteen minute drive to the ferry terminal, where you will embark on a twenty minute crossing to the island.
  • Koh Chang has 2 seasons. The rainy season here lasts from May until October, the dry season from November until April. ( the cold time between November and February and the hot time from March until May). Most visitors are on the island between December and March; this is also the best time for a stay, since the temperatures rarely exceed over 30' Celsius.
    In November and December it can become occasionally quite cool because of the wind in the evening and at night.
  • Koh Chang has much more to offer than just regular holiday relaxation. Not only the many beaches, bays and villages make Koh Chang a little paradise, but also many other sights and points of interest. Most of the toursits simply wish to relax and enjoy the hotel and beach, but there are also many who wish to experience some of Koh Chang's many recreations on offer such as Scuba diving, Snorkeling, kayaking, Sea fishing, Squid hunting, Elephant trekking, Waterfalls sightseeing, Fisherman village sightseeing, Tree top adventure trip (tree top adventure park), Koh Chang ATV, Car & motorcycle rental.

Reaching Koh Chang is quite easy from Bangkok. We recommend to take the bus, it is comfortable and cheap, you can get it almost every hour from 6:00am until midnight at the Ekamai Bus Terminal which is located at the Ekamai section of Sukhumvit Road. Round trip tickets cost 456 baht (US $13, 10€) on first class air conditioned busses. The trip takes about 5 hours. When you arrive at Trat you’ll have to take a taxi from the bus station to the pier (1km). Ferries depart from the pier every hour during November to April from 6:00am until 7:00pm and costs 50 baht per person and takes around 30 minutes.
