Few days ago I updated the link of the 2015 Thai holidays calendar which is located completely on the bottom the this page. You may wonder why this link is important. Here is the reason (pictures from https://www.facebook.com/groups/wiparkkohchang/):
Long weekends attract also a lot of Thai people which are all visiting Koh Chang by car and when it's time to go back home the waiting time to the ferry can be very, very, extremely very long. If you have a plane to catch be aware that it will take more time than usual.
When you are planning your trip, just check that you will not have to leave during one of those crazy days otherwise you will have to be very patient and wish that you checked-out early enough to not miss your flight.

Again, Happy New Year to all of you and thank you for following us and for visiting Koh Chang!
There has been a lot of happenings yesterday evening, pubs and restaurants were full with lots of food, drinks, music and lights. Resorts had their own celebration with special meals or buffets, they were also full and for the ones who are located on the different beaches, there were lots of shows and all ended with fireworks, fire shows, music, parties and happiness.
Now it's time to digest all of that, recover from this busy night and the beach is now the best place to relax ;)
Happy New Year 2015 - สวัสดีปีใหม่ 2558

The excellent Koh Chang Guide Application has just been updated. For now it works only with iPhones and iPads but soon it should be also available for Android devices.
If you haven't installed it, click on the picture below or look at it in the App Store.
All resorts, restaurants, attractions,... have been listed, reviewed and located on the Koh Chang map. If you enable the location, you can even see what is nearby you. This is a great and very useful tool if you are in the island or if you want to prepare your trip.
And like our website this application is independent, they don't accept payment to get a good review or be listed, the reviews are just based on their own and their friends experiences.

We have received this year lots of emails asking if it's possible to rent a house in Koh Chang or where to find a very quiet and relaxing place.
If you want to spend quiet holidays, far from the traffic, noise, pubs and crowd, the east part of the island is then made for you. It's not completely dead like most of people are thinking, it's just less visited because there are less sandy beaches and less buildings. But there are few good locations with restaurants, resorts and also houses which are for rent.
And if you have a big family or travelling with friends, renting a house may become cheaper than renting few bungalows.
Koh Chang Vacation Rentals is proposing different houses located in a residential area, very quiet, with a small beach and nice views on the sea or on the mountains.

In less than a week we will be in 2015.
If you haven't noticed it yet, at the bottom of the page there are 3 links in yellow where you can see the live weather in Koh Chang as well as a 10-Day forecast, the actual Thai Baht rate and now the 2015 national days and holidays in Thailand. This last one can be useful if you are visiting Koh Chang and want to avoid long waiting at the ferry piers.
