While staying on Koh Chang I went on a day trip to Koh Wai, a very small crescent-shaped island 6 km south of Koh Chang. Koh Wai is a fairly uninhabited quiet island paradise with no villages, no shops, no roads, no traffic, no cars, no motorbikes, no parties, very limited electricity and just primitive bungalows in paradise.I bought the day trip to Koh Wai at a local travel shop in Bailan Bay for 600B including all transportations, a 50B voucher for food and drinks, and snorkelling gear. A pick up truck came to pick me up from the hotel in the morning and took me to Bang Bao pier from where we cruised on a slow wooden boat to Koh Wai in less than one hour. There was no pier on Koh Wai, so from the big boat we hopped on to a rowing boat and were taken to the beach.Koh Wai is a perfect island paradise just to relax and do nothing but chill out on the beach, take a nap in the hammock, read a book, swim, enjoy sunbathing and do snorkelling in crystal clear waters. In other words do absolutely nothing!Ooops! There is one must thing to do on Koh Wai: taking in the stunning views over the sea with turquoise waters and green mountains. Koh Chang’s pyramid-shaped mountains definitely add to Koh Wai’s breathtaking scenery and picture perfect settings.A handful of pleasant small beaches with soft sand line Koh Wai’s northern shore with a simple coastal path connecting them to one another. Other coasts are rocky and the interior of the island is covered by untouched forest.Koh Wai truly is a place where you can totally forget the world and just focus on relaxation. If I had had more time I would have stayed here at least 2–3 nights just to enjoy the peace and quiet in the remote island paradise. I absolutely loved the laid back atmosphere of Koh Wai and this is such an ideal place for people like me who from time to time want to take a break from the real world.
