About Koh Chang Trat, Thailand
In the Wonder of Koh Chang Island
On occasion, it i called, “the beast of the east,”, large in part because, well, because it’s pretty large. Located in the eastern Gulf of Thailand, Ko Chang Island is a figurehead of the Thailand islands, between mountains which will literally steal your breath away, to a beach whose presence in itself can leave a veteran beachcomber speechless.
There have been a few that have said the name, Ko Chang originates from the shape in which it holds on the map, resembling what looks to be an elephant. Then there are some who absolutely insist that the name spawns from the broad mountains that rest deep in the inland, which to them, looks much like an elephant whose lying down in the water. The theory that claims the most opinions, surrounds itself around a legendary, rebellious elephant who had suffered the heartbreaking tragedy of losing her three baby elephants to drowning, while they joined her on long voyage to the mainland. The years of wondering have culminated into a legends creation, which immortalizes these three baby elephants into the representation of those three rocks which sit of the northern coast, which travelers and locals alike have the good fortune in the spectacle as they pass by.
Despite the origins of it’s namesake, the island rises into it’s beastly reputation, Ko Samui and Phuket are the only bigger islands in the entire Thai region. The 217 square kilometres of this inland rainforest are seemingly untouched. Waterfalls don’t come any more graceful than they do in Ko Change and when one of them must stand up as the tallest leader of the other eight notable waterfalls, Khlong Nueng assumes that position with gusto. Located at the highest peak of the region, white waters cascade down the 120 meter-high ravine as it stands at an imposing 744 meters tall, talk about beast.
Kingdom of Animals
Sifting through the jungle, macaques and mongooses roam within a friendly distance of the reptiles, birds and the hornbill, who majestically oversee the action. The presence of dolphins sometimes enter the picture on those occasions when they can be seen directly off the southeast coast.
The rainforest may lack the footsteps of man, the island in itself is highly developed and inhabited. Those long faded days of the adventure seeking backpackers, who found themselves anchored to the barren shore, are now the home to an island which carries the weight of the new developments at every turn and in the pulse of life that beats virtually everywhere. The white sands contain the purest of textures at one time but now it is only seen as a backdrop to the little markets, the bars, tourist shops and of course the beautiful Koh Chang Hotels
Ko Change though, luckily is a long way from reaching those chaotic depths of new development as opposed of course, to its larger counterpart, Phuket. The terrain stretches for what feels like a lifetime and the only way to make contact with the island is by taking a car ferry, likely due to the lack of life which still eludes itself. On the quiet side of the eastern coast, Salak Khok, Dan Mai and Salak Phet, there are small villages which are only a short walk away.
The Sands of Koh Chang’s Essence
As far as the Koh Chang Hotels, they reside on the west side of the island and then the white sands on those beaches in particular, in a word…immaculate. The side that claims the most hectic life out of the entire bunch is Sad Sai Kai, which is typically considered, “the beach of sands.” Closest to the ferries on the North-Western side of the island, tourist who arrive from the mainland to enjoy the island, will then head back in route for their journey home.
The island doesn’t support an airport, that duty goes to the nearby city, Trat. When Traveling to and fro the airport it is always accommodated by buses and mini-buses which deliver the tourist to the ferry. The duration of travel on the ferry is around 25 minutes.
As you stretch the island further down south is the most popular spot in the area which has seen vital growth in recent years, Klong Prao Beach. It has to be the most modern and the most ritziest in the entire region. Along that sandy landscape of white, the resorts stretch a great length of four kilometers long. The area is chock loaded with fantastic restaurants but on the other hand, searching for shops to peruse can be at times, quite difficult.
Koh Chang Hotels Add to the Feeling of the Island
Those individuals who revel in the serenity of peace are in luck when they finally inhabit the most well known of the solitude laden beaches, which is none other than, Lonely Beach. This beach has been a destination which sits at the top of the list for all the backpackers. The island isn’t only just for vagabonds though, currently there is luxurious Ko Chang Hotels being built, which may possibly lead to the inevitability of the island losing it’s quiet reputation. The one great thing that all the islands share in common are that they are extremely accessible and they are open to hectic free treks for all who are willing to wander.
When would be the best time to visit Koh Chang?
To witness Ko Chang at it’s most stunning, it should always be within the months of November and May. The time between June and October is the season which is at it’s worst for monsoons, called the,”wet season”, which is usually hit hard by rain and various storms. As far as the tours are concerned, they are totally defunct during the wet season, so that would be of the obvious non-recommendation for those who want get the most out of Ko Chang.
Island of Dreams
This island is a stunning experience and it what it offers is something which money couldn’t ever dream to buy. It is only just a simple feeling but that moment you step foot in Ko Chang, you lose yourself in that feeling and it’s explanation is just impossible, for which it bears no name, it just is. If you take the island on and you walk on it’s shores, that nondescript feeling will be yours and that friends, is a priceless souvenir.
