Year 2017 was my third year as a blogger, and I must say that the last 3 years have been the most exciting years of my life. 3 years filled with exhilarating adventures around the world, both near and far.In 2017 I wrote a total of 48 posts, nearly one post per week, which I think is a good frequency since I want to be able to create quality content. I am also extremely happy that in 2017 I was able to more than double my blog traffic from Continue reading
Many people have asked me what is the best and easiest way to get to Koh Chang from Bangkok. This of course totally depends on what type of traveller you are. Some people want to get to Koh Chang as quickly as possible. Some people want to get to Koh Chang as cheaply as possible.This time I only had the chance to do island hopping in Thailand for 2 weeks so I opted for the Continue reading
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 Continue reading

Koh Chang, the green elephant island in the far northeastern part of the Gulf of Thailand, is the third largest island in Thailand. As I did not want to rent a scooter and drive around the island myself I decided to book a day trip to see what the island has to offer.Next morning at around 9 o’clock a songthaew taxi came to pick me up from the hotel and we headed towards the northern part of the island. At White Sand Beach we picked up Continue reading
During my stay in Klong Prao and Bailan Bay on Koh Chang I explored lots of other villages and beaches of the island, too, as I am a person who gets easily bored staying in place for a long time. The west coast of Koh Chang accommodates the longest and most beautiful beaches and of course most tourists also find their way there. All villages and beaches have a very different type of feeling and vibe, and I think I chose very wisely staying in Klong Prao and Bailan Bay.
White Sand Beach (Hat Sai Khao)
White Sand Beach is the most developed and also the busiest village on Koh Chang with lots of restaurants, bars, night clubs, cafes, supermarkets and shops along the main road. I did not particularly like Continue reading
In the good old days Bang Bao village in the southwestern corner of Koh Chang used to be a traditional little Thai fishing village where life concentrated around a long and narrow pier with traditional wooden stilt houses and fishing boats moored up ready for sea.In the recent years most of the original Bang Bao village has changed due to the growing number of Continue reading
After spending the first 5 days of my Thailand island hopping adventures enjoying quiet beach life by blue lagoons and green mountains in the small village of Klong Prao in Koh Chang, next I decided to venture further south to the village of Bailan Bay on the west coast of Koh Chang.
During my island hopping adventures in Thailand my first destination was the Elephant Island of Koh Chang in Trat archipelago. I stayed the first 5 nights in the small village of Klong Prao that lies on one of the few flat areas of land on the west coast of Koh Chang.
In Klong Prao the beach is split into three sections by lagoons and inland waterways, the klongs. This means a river estuary in the north and a Continue reading
