Excursions

We have chosen a specific selection of Tours and Operators that we think you at LITTLE EDEN would personally prefer, a more individual selection, we would like you to have a great time and come back again one day.

We can book your typical adventure trips like snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, cooking classes, elephant trekking, jungle trekking, transportation to the nearby islands and of course a minivan to Bangkok.

The tour operators will pick you up directly at LITTLE EDEN.

Ask for tips on individual excursions, locations and things to do around the island, our aim is to make your stay an unforgettable experience. Sometimes small things can make a big difference.


Our rates are basically the same like most tour shops on Lonely beach, but we offer a more individual service and support.


Freedom of the Island



Rent a Motorscooter

Rent a Motorscooter
LITTLE EDEN has Motorscooters for rent, Honda Clicks 125cc Automatics, all in excellent condition, the clicks have a dual braking system, 
24 hours 150-200 Baht low season, 250 Baht high season.  

There are other rental shops in the village, some are trustworthy and some not so trustworthy, some a bit cheaper and some more expensive depending on condition. These shops will ask you for your Passport as a deposit, no passport no scooter.
If you return your scooter and the shop has the opinion that you have damaged it, and you don't, then they will not return your passport until you pay.

Driving license not necessary just like home hehehe.
If you get stopped by the police it would be because you are not wearing a helmet, 200 Baht fine each, sometimes set up road blocks in the afternoon in different spots.

If you are traveling elsewhere in Asia before arriving on Koh Chang try practicing riding a scooter elsewhere on the flat first as the hills on Koh Chang are steep and twisty, so experience is important for your own safety.
We don't rent to newcomers! But:
You can't drive a Scooter but want to and you feel confident, David can show you how to drive one, teach you the basics, follow you to check your balance, and then if your good then you are going to have a great time exploring the island.


When driving around the island most villages have fuel stations where the fuel should be 27 Baht litre, but most places sell 0.7l bottles for 40 Baht. The bikes are not insured so any damages you will be asked to pay yourselves, also for the additional time it is away for service.

SAFETY TIP: If it starts to rain STOP! In this moment the roads get slippery like ice, drizzle is the most dangerous hazard. It is because of the thin layer of rubber which is left by hot tires from motorscooters, cars and trucks on the steep roads. You won't get up the hills because of the slipperiness. . . . but you will get down, so better to stop and get wet, or even better keep out of the hills if the weather is dodgy. Even on the straits its slippery.


SAFETY TIP: Please remember to reduce your speed before corners and accelerate gently out of them.
  • And if the bike happens to fall off or over, switch off the engine before trying to pick the bike up, otherwise the bike might take off without you. . . a nasty mess. 
There are also Songtheaws (white taxi pickups) which are driving up and down the island, they will charge 40 - 100 Baht each depending on the destination.
We can also get you a car to rent, 1,200 Baht for the day.

Destinations

On Koh Chang the beaches are owned by the island and not the resorts so you should be able to access the beaches through most resorts. There are also road signs directing you to the sea.
 
Waterfalls. . . there are two main waterfalls on the island, one on the west side Klong Plu, this one there is a stream and a path about 800 meters long leading up to the Waterfall with many ponds for swimming, dip your feet in and wait a while then little fish will come and nibble on your feet, fish Spa.

Chinese Temple. . . here you can shake your fortune, ask how to do this, this is a typical Thai cultural ceremony, once a year this is usually practiced, the Thais are a bit superstitious. . .
Once you have shaken your chop stick you will see a number on the stick, at the sides of the temple there is a cupboard with numbers indicating the number on your chop stick, please take the corosponding fortune paper, it is written in Thai and English.
Caution please don't step on the door frame entering the temple and take your shoes off.


More than the eye can see! On the east side the waterfall near Baan Dan Mai "Than Mayom waterfall" has a spectacular shelves which you can climb up to if you dare, big jumps into deep pools. The other waterfall just north of that is called Khlong Nonthi waterfall. There is also a good and inexpensive seafood restaurant in the south east called Salakok Seafood, at this location Kayaks can be rented for paddling through the Monggroves.

The east side the island is totally different to the west side, no steep hills, the beaches are mostly stoney, mangrove woods, breathtaking mountains and vegetation. A favourite destination is Long Beach, it is a big day out and a lot of sights to see and roads to experience, waterfalls, cute little Temple in Sala Pet, good sea food restaurant, fishing village etc. 
A fantastic destination and a great day out on the scooter is Long Beach, December 2016 the road has been competed, now you can drive all the way to Long Beach and the little Beach after which has a Victory Monument, really worth seeing, amazing views, really a unforgettable experience.
There is a resort called Long Beach resort, here you can get food and drinks and you can access Long Beach.

Beaches
The most popular destination of course is Lonely Beach, to get there walk to the main road then turn right then walk 500 meters along the road, walk through Siam Huts to access the beach. There is a sign to The Beach but this is misleading as it takes you to the Stoney beachfront only, Lonely beach is about 50 meters further on through Siam Hut.
Lonely beach has beautiful white sandy beach, beautiful clean water, paradise.

Most Beaches are accessible through resorts, the beaches belong to the island so access should be granted.

Kayak tours
Ask for individual kayak trips to little islands and remote beaches.

The beach is vast almost deserted, an alternative day out. Get there by motor-scooter or by Taxi.

Originally in about year 2000 there was a road connecting the two sides of the island, there were 2 bridges, these were washed away by the rain water coming down The Valley in the rain period, never been re-built. The road was really windy and steep, almost impossible to cross.
On the way or the way back from Grand Lagoona, where the road changes from double to single lane you should see a road going of up into the woods, this is the old road which used to connect the two sides of the island, on the west side the road stops about 1.5km at a bridge which was washed away years ago.
In 2010 Koh Chang authorities were considering to rebuild the road, but nothing happened.
