It has been a week since the last update. Life in Koh Chang is going slowly, it's the low season and the island is very quiet. The weather is very nice for a rainy season and beaches are completely empty.

Like there isn't so much things happening right now, here are beautiful butterfly pictures taken by Paweena Khamsap. Since few weeks she has been feeding and protecting big caterpillars which have now turned to beautiful and big butterflies.
There are lots of butterflies in Koh Chang which can be seen all the year. Some of them are really big.

Chai Chet is known for its viewpoint but it's a small village with few nice resorts and the beginning of the north part of Klong Prao beach.

Pearl beach, between White Sand beach and Chai Chet, is a small rocky beach, very quiet with few good resorts and 2 big supermarkets. Prices are lower than other popular beaches and if you don't miss sandy beaches, this place could be a good alternative.

If you are planning to come to visit Koh Chang you may wonder how to get there once landed in Bangkok.
Depending of your budget there are different ways. The cheapest is the bus which is also the longest. And once arrived at the pier, you will have to manage by yourself, buy the ferry ticket, take the ferry and get a taxi.
The plane from Bangkok to Trat is the fastest and also the most expensive. But in some cases, when you will add the transit time in Bangkok and the time to travel from Trat airport to Koh Chang, it may become as long as travelling by car.
Shared minibuses are cheaper than the plane or a private car but more expensive than buses. I don't recommend them like they normally drive over-speed and take useless risks. On top of that they are full loaded which means you will be stuck inside for several hours with other people.

I always recommend Ing Taxi who is a private driver and a trustable person who is taking care of his passengers.
Ing will pick you up where ever you want, at the airport, at a hotel in Bangkok but also from any other place in Thailand and he, or his team mates, will drive you directly to your resort in Koh Chang. No bad surprise with the prices, they are already defined and you can check them on his webpage (http://www.ingtaxi.com/index.php/rates) and the payment will be done once arrived.
It will cost you 3500 bahts (+ the ferry tickets) from Bangkok to your resort in Koh Chang for 1 or 4 persons in his Toyata Innova or 5500 bahts (+ ferry tickets) up to 9 persons in a minibus.
The biggest advantage is to be alone with your friends or family and you can ask him to stop when ever you want.

Like always, you can contact me if you need more information and I will help you with pleasure!

Another restaurant has been added to my recommendation list. El Greco Lounge Bar Restaurant Guesthouse is located in Bang Bao, directly on the pier. Rewarded the last 3 years by Tripadvisor for its Greek cuisine but also from the atmosphere of this stilts house.

The owners are very friendly and often organising small boat trips with their guests to the surrounding islands where they all eat together on the beach, have fun and swim in the crystal clear water.
There are few guesthouse rooms which can be rented all the year.

Another resort has just been added to my recommendation list. Amber Sands Beach Resort is the type of place I like in term of quality, price, hospitality, comfort and location.

It's not a big resort, only 8 bungalows and it's not located on a popular tourists area which means that you won't get a crowded beach during the high season, noisy traffic and loud music played by night.

Amber Sands Beach Resort is located on the north-east part of Koh Chang, not so far from the ferry pier. It' a small and romantic resort with spacious and comfortable bungalows surrounding a nice swimming pool and facing the sea.

If you want to see beautiful waterfalls, try to visit them during the low season, there will be nice falls and more water than in the high and dry season.
There are few waterfalls in Koh Chang, some are free while others like Klong Plu waterterfall in Klong Prao will request a "National Park" entry fee of 200 bahts per person for foreigners and like always, less for Thai people. In the north of Koh Chang, not so far Klong Son, there is a small waterfall hidden in the jungle.

Teerasak from Thomas Koch Travel & Adventure and Paitoon from Blues Blues Arts & Food went today to Klong Jow Laem waterfall and here are some pictures of their small adventure.

Thomas can arrange day trips around Koh Chang as well as inside the jungle to this waterfall. He knows almost everything about the local traditions but also about the nature. You may have the chance to see one of those White-Lipped Pit Vipers ;)
