Just when you thought you have seen everything, Thailand will always make you think twice. The country is known for a lot of beautiful things but it has another hidden gem: Koh Chang. The island’s name literally translates to Elephant Island. However, there are no known elephant species that are indigenous to the area. It got its name from its elephant shaped headland. There is no better way of enjoying a place than staying in a cozy resort in a tropical paradise. If you can afford a five star resort, a 4 star resort in Koh Chang might just do the trick for you. But before that, here are things you should know about Koh Chang.
If you love waterfalls and adventure, Koh Chang is the place for you. Due to its hilly nature, Koh Chang is home to more than ten waterfalls including the exciting Klong Plu falls. Like most waterfalls, Klong Plu requires a thirty minute walk before you can get to it. Despite that, the effort will be all worth it. Pools of turquoise fresh water are abundant in the said falls. In addition to that, once you submerge your feet in the water, you will see some fish nibble your dead skin away. So, it’s a water fall and a fish spa in one! But before visiting, check the season. Like all waterfalls, it tends to be dry during hot summers. Another attraction in the island are its beaches. Powdery white sand beaches are scattered all throughout the islands. You can even enjoy some of them for free! Aside from that, the marine flora and fauna is so rich in Koh Chang. So prepare your bathing suits because it will be one hell of a trip.

However, if you don’t want to go that way, here are a few things you can do. As mentioned above, the marine ecosystem in the island is very healthy. One of the best ways to enjoy its majestic beauty is by Snorkeling through its five islets. If snorkeling is not enough, you can always go diving to be more up close with nature. Fishing trips can be also done in the island. This is for the man of the family who wants to relax and maybe grab a cold one while doing so. This is also a good way to bond with the children while teaching them a fishing trick or two. Trekking towards the island’s waterfalls is also a good option if you are looking for thrill and adventure. In addition to that, if you want more adrenaline pumping activities, you can always ride an ATV or go elephant trekking.
