4 Places to See on Koh Chang, Thailand.

This is ideal to have a car on the island as you can go freely where you want to go. If you don't, you can wait on the side of the road for one of the numerous taxis that pick-up passengers along the way. I do not know what prices are like, but you should confirm the price to your destination before getting in.

You can also rent a motorcycle if you'd prefer to be more independent, but know that it is very dangerous, especially at night, on small roads with a lot of curves and little lights.

White Sand Beach

White Sand Beach is the first beach that you see from the road when you arrive from the ferry pier. It is the most crowded area on the island and if you want tranquility, not exactly the place to be.

On the contrary, if you want to enjoy all the restaurants, shops and nightlife, this is the place you want to stay.

The beach is also very beautiful.

That's a big tree at one side of the beach and there are several like this.

A nice bungalow in front of the beach, if it is what you like (4,000 Thb per night.)

What's great is that you do not have all these beach chair blocks on the beach like in Pattaya, and it makes it more enjoyable just to sit on a mat for a while.

Even dogs enjoy the beach!

Koh Man Nai

When going South, there is a view point on the road to a small island named Koh Man Nai.

First of all, as a tourist you should be aware of all the fines you might get if you brake the rules.

Koh Man Nai View

It's 500 Thb for a graffiti or for obscene words, excessive noise and unsociable behaviors.

I personally would like this last rule to be applied more generally in the country.

That is the beach we have access to from the Mercure Koh Chang Hideaway Hotel.

It is a very quiet beach with few people.

This is early morning while having my walk.

Bang Pao Pier

Further south you can find Bang Pao Pier where all tourists are taking boat trips for the day to other small islands.

There are lots of souvenir shops, travel agencies and restaurants.

Boats can be very crowded.

When we enquired for a trip to one island, it was departure at 9:00 a.m. and returning at 3:00 p.m., 500 Thb for adults and 250 Thb for a child.
