This is the second largest island in Thailand after Phuket. It’s called “Elephant Island” because of its shape. The island is located on the east coast near the border of Cambodia. It is part of a National Park consisting of 46 islands. The island is still relatively untouched because its jungled mountains create a natural border to prevent over development. On the west side of the island, there are long and beautiful beaches to welcome visitors who love to relax or walk. One beach with many palm trees is called “Hai Sai Kaeo” meaning “the brightest sandy beach”. It is considered one of the most beautiful in Thailand.
How to get there: From Bangkok Airport or city hotels, by road to Trat, approx. 4.5 hours, plus car ferry to Koh Chang around 30-60 minutes.
