Koh Chang island

Ultimate guide (July 2022)
Ko Chang is an island in Thailand located relatively close to Bangkok. The beaches are almost as good as in the more popular resort areas of the country. But there are not so many tourists due to the poor transport accessibility, as the island has no airport. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #2 of the "Best islands in Gulf of Thailand"

Hotels [edit]

Most of the Chang'a hotels are in the west of the island. Once upon a time these were much cheaper than in Phuket or in Koh Samui, but now prices are almost the same.
