Rent a Motorscooter
We have Motorscooters for rent, Honda Clicks 125cc, 24 hours 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 the owners. These shops will ask to keep your Passport as a deposit, no passport no scooter!
Driving license not necessary.
Sometimes the police make a road block to stop people for not wearing a helmet, pay the 200 Baht fine each, then you can drive on.
Can't ride a scooter? . . . We can teach you 😃
You can't drive a Scooter but want to and you feel confident, David can show you how to ride one, teach you the basics, and then if you are good then you are going to have a great time exploring the island. Just keep your adrenaline under control, keep cool, and you'll be safe.
SAFETY TIP: If it starts to rain and your up in the mountains then STOP! In this moment the roads get slippery like ice, slightly wet is the most dangerous hazard. It is because of the thin layer of rubber which is left by hot tires from bikes, cars and trucks on the steep roads.
There are also Songtheaws (white taxi pickups) which drive up and down the island, they will charge about 60 - 120 Baht per each depending on the destination.
We can also get you a car to rent, about 1,200 Baht for the day. In the north of the island there are also Jeeps for rent, please ask for information.
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 signs directing you to the beaches.
. . . 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 a couple of seconds and then little fish will come and nibble on your feet, fish Spa.
. . . here you can shake chop sticks to tell your fortune, ask how to do this, this is a typical Thai cultural ceremony, once a month this is usually practiced, the Thais are a bit superstitious. . .
Once you have shaken out your 1 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 corresponding fortune text, it is written in Thai, English and Chinese.
Caution please don't step on the door frame entering the temple and don't forget to take your shoes off.
East side of the island
Dan Mai waterfall
More than the eye can see! On the east side the waterfall near Baan Dan Mai "The Mayom waterfall" has 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 seafood restaurant in the south east called Salakok Seafood, at this location Kayaks can be rented for paddling through the Monggroves.
In the Salakphet there is also a beautiful walkway through the mangroves, really worth a visit, just after the small temple on the left there is a road leading to the way. In Salakphet there is a Seafood restaurant which is really worth a visit, I think best Seafood on the island.
The east side the island is really worth a day trip.
A fantastic destination and a great day out on the scooter is Long Beach, December 2016 the road was paved, you can drive all the way to Long Beach and the little Beach after which has a Victory Monument, really worth visiting. At the Victory monument a big concrete building has been built in the shape of a boat, this should have been a museum and a little coffee shop but has never opened.
Opposite Long Beach on the left is a little road leading to a resort with no name, also worth a visit, you can rent Kayaks and paddle a few minutes to the beautiful island called Ko Ngam, just off the resort, but they might charge for entering the national park. The resort has nets breeding fish, go and have a look, they have enormous fish too.
You will see Long Beach resort, here you can get food and drinks and you can access Long Beach.

On Koh Chang one of the most popular beaches is Lonely Beach, to get there walk to the main road then turn right, walk about 400 meters along the road.

Different days, Different tours
Massage is a must in Thailand, many people say Thai Massage the best in the world.
This could play a dominant part of your stay on Lonely Beach and Thailand.
The Traditional Thai Massage not only eases stiffness but improves the circulation of the whole body and carries oxygen and nourishment to each cell and encourages self-healing. Thus it regains healthy body and mind by getting original physical condition. Unlike so-called quick massage which only takes short time to relive partial stiffness where Traditional Thai Massage takes relaxing time to relive the whole Body.
Doctor of Massage
Try a two hour massage, sabaai sabaai. Traditionally Thai Massage is 2 hours or even more.
TIP: If your body is not used to massage I would start with an Oil Massage for a couple of times first, then Thai Oil, working up to a Thai Massage. Thai Massage is a healing massage, enjoy :)

The old Road connecting east and west
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 massive rain coming down the Valley in the rain season, they have never been re-built. The old road had really steep hills, almost impossible to cross.
In 2010 Koh Chang authorities were considering to rebuild the road, but nothing has happened yet.
In 2018 the prime minister visited the island and approved the building of the road again, so activities are supposed to happen soon, maybe next year.
