Hotels in Koh Chang
The Thai Island of Koh Chang, or Elephant Island, feels remote and beautiful, swathed in mountainous jungle and girdled by beaches. But it is also an accessible and vibrant resort.
Beaches and waterfront
Naturally one of the prime attractions on Koh Chang is the beach, where the impossibly bright azure sea meets pale glittering sand, framed by rocky headlands, steep green mountainsides and luxury resorts.
Ao Khlong Prao is a good example, offering an elegant sandy sweep and dramatic natural backdrop. The favourite activity here is probably sunbathing by the hotel pools, but beach combing will reveal all kinds of exotic life left behind by the tide. If you seek a sandy beach that still feels a little undiscovered, make for Hat Khlong Kloi to the east of Ao Bang Bao. It's a very beautiful spot and despite being peaceful, provides the basics you need such as food and drinks.
From Koh Chang Hotels you can explore the magical landscapes of the island, which are at least as fascinating as the iconic beaches. Waterfalls are the hidden gems of the interior, such as Nam Tok Khlong Plu. Nestling in deep jungle, it is a three-tiered fall which you can access along a short jungle path. Perhaps the most memorable way to experience the stunning forests, hills and rivers is from the back of an elephant. At Ban Kwan Chang, deep in the jungle, you can spend up to three hours riding one of these serene creatures and really get close to the wildlife that teems all around you.
Another fascinating ecosystem that lies between land and sea is the mangrove, which acts as a vital nursery and breeding ground for numerous species. Why not rent a Kayak at Ao Salak Kok and discover this unique and carefully protected environment first hand?
Culture and Communities
The traditional fishing community of Ban Bang Bao still features the trademark interconnecting piers so typical of such villages, but the people have adapted to meet the demands of 21st-century visitors. Now there are souvenir shops and restaurants too. The seafood is truly excellent and the shopping experience good too, plus, you can hire a boat to take you out into the glorious blue ocean.
Visit the busy and unspoilt village of Ban Salak Phet and you will encounter fishermen and traders about their business and an authentic community that shows you what Koh Chang would have been like decades ago. You might like to try one of the incredible seafood restaurants while you're here, or take one of the quiet little roads out to a secluded nearby beach.
Koh Chang offers you the full spectrum of Thai flavours and of course the best seafood, plus there are plenty of international flavours too. Paradise Behind The Sea is a self-explanatory name for a fine restaurant on the east coast of the island. Delicious Thai and Vietnamese dishes are available in abundance, accompanied by cool onshore breezes.
At the Jungle Way Restaurant you can climb up to an elevated wildlife-viewing platform whilst your meal is being perfected at a leisurely pace down below.
