Koh Chang is a beautiful laid back island in the Andaman Sea on the south-west coast of Thailand about an hour from Ranong. The island has maintained its natural beauty and simplicity, which is becoming more and more difficult to find in Thailand. It is a wonderful place to relax and withdraw from fast-paced life and find peace and tranquility.
If you are an explorer there is a lot to do: beautiful walks in the jungle, along the beaches or through rubber and cashew plantations, meeting friendly Thai and Myanmar people in small settlements dotted around the island or discovering flocks of hornbills and other tropical birds in the trees!
Ao Yai, the long beach, is safe for children and suitable for many sporting activities like jogging, frisbee or volleyball. You can rent kayaks, bicycles or go swimming in the sea or the lake. Of course you can join our classes, use our big trampoline or practice your balance on our slack line. The snorkeling is not outstanding on Koh Chang but the sea is beautiful to be in and there is nothing as relaxing as floating on a Lilo (air mattress) and allowing the water to gently move you.
Aladdin Diver Safari, located at Cashew Resort, offers liveaboard dive tours and dive tours around the Surin and Similan National Marine Park and the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (www.aladdindivesafari.com).
You want to relax and hang out? No problem, there are plenty of trees to hang your hammock up and enough restaurants for enjoying delicious Thai and Western food.
