    Koh Chang

    I have been in thailand last summer for a few weeks and we have been to koh toa for a few day. In thailand didn't hear anything of koh Chang, but last month i read an artikel about koh chang.

    Can anybody tell me what kind of people go there, and if it is worth a visit (I enjoyed Koh Toa very much)

    thanks,
    Andrew

    Hello!

    I have been to Koh Chang. Is is quiet hilly and not too developped. Many thai tourists. Warning: this island, unlike the rest of Thailand, is a high risk malaria zone. Be sure to take the appropriate precautions and to avoid any bungalow next to a pound (like the last one on the dead end of the road driving around the island). I got about 200 bites in 1 night!!

    so happy!

    hello there,

    yes, Koh Chang is a very beautiful island and less commercialised too.

    The hilly mountains make this place more unique and it's a challenge for those who are driving their own vehicles.

    so, have fun in Koh Chang and tell us about your experience after you come back!

    Rgds,
    May

    (When reading this, keep in mind: my hometown is right on the beach, so seeing white sandy beaches is no big deal for me.)

    My experience in Koh Chang was not so great. I did not find the local Thai people to be too friendly. I wish I could honestly say that I had a great time, but that wouldn't be true. The only point in which I wasn't bored out of my mind was when I took the scariest Sorngtaew ride of my life. Those little pick-up trucks fly at a million miles an hour though those mountainous roads. I personally don't feel any need to journey back there anytime soon.

    So sorry to hear of your unfavourable trip to Koh Chang. But a million thanks for your feedback on your time there. I absolutely hate mosquitoes! So I'll definitely not be going there anytime soon after reading this review. Maybe in future when it gets just a little more developed.
