Go Green on Koh Chang
The island is easily accessible
There are several ways to get to Koh Chang: by air, bus, rental car, or taxi. Taking the bus from Bangkok is the best and cheapest way to get Laem Ngop, Trat Province, where the Koh Chang ferry piers are located. Travel time is about 5 hours. From there, it is only a 30-minute ferry ride to get to the island. The island surely is a perfect getaway for tourists who want to avoid overcrowded beaches and islands, while it is easily accessible from Bangkok.
Koh Chang, for me, is the perfect place to experience authentic island life. There are not many tourists in the island, and that is where its charm life, along with friendly and warm locals. It is not only a great beach destination but also great place to get insights into the life of Thai people.
Your hard earned money goes a long way in Koh Chang
Thailand is one of the cheapest travel destinations in the world, but in Thai islands, almost everything is expensive. However, this is not the case in Koh Chang. Range of prices for everything is reasonable. Also, the island has heaps of accommodation to suit every pocket, ranging from luxury villas to basic beach huts and bungalows. Basically, you can find anything to fit your budget in Koh Chang.
