Koh Chang review

Koh Chang is the third largest island in Thailand after Phuket and Koh Samui, and what a different character it offers. From the longest White Sand beach to many off-the-beaten-path islands nearby, each adding a different experience, Koh Chang promises a perfect cruising ground for sea adventurers. And on land, it does not disappoint either. Translated loosely as the Elephant Island, Koh Chang is home to the high mountain ranges that house these giant marvels of nature.

Koh Chang threatens to cancel out every fun event you have on your holiday bucket list – from snorkeling to exploring ancient ruins. You can expect elephant sanctuaries, jungle trekking amid wild monkeys, charming fishing villages with distinct characters, and selfies from spectacular viewpoints. Koh Chang also features an array of waterfalls set up to wow the most introverted of persons and sweep you off your feet, quite literally. There is just so much to see in one single place.

Elephant Island belongs to Koh Chang National Mark Park, which spans over 50 islands. Apart from Koh Chang, other most notable islands include Koh Ngam, Koh Wai, Koh Kham, Koh Mak, Koh Kood, as well as Koh Rang archipelago. Most of the islands are untouched by humans offering a real Robinson Crusoe experience. Witness secluded beaches, dense rainforest, and shallow waters filled with corals, and thriving marine life. The tiny islands around Koh Rang promise terrific diving and snorkeling spots.
