Ko Chang Overview

Located just 300 kilometers southeast from Bangkok, in Trat Province near the Cambodian border, Ko Chang is Thailand's second largest island after Phuket and , amazingly, largely overlooked. Its shoreline includes numerous white sand coves and beaches, coconut groves, mangroves, and a rich variety of marine life. The beaches are smaller than those of the southern islands and provide a more laid-back, easy going tropical adventure. Ko Chang is noted as Thailand's best preserved holiday destination with 70% of its rugged, hilly terrain consisting of virgin rainforest with an abundance of wildlife, numerous hiking trails, and several scenic waterfalls.

From Bangkok (Eastern Bus Station) it is a five and a half hour ride to Trat, or only fifty minutes by air. Ferry service to the island is about half an hour. Accommodation ranges from low-budget bungalows to luxury hotels, suites, and villas. Whether touring Thailand or traveling on to Cambodia, Ko Chang is well-worth a visit.
