Koh Chang is among the largest islands in the Gulf of Thailand, famed for its dense jungles, hiking trails, natural wonders, quaint coastal villages and beaches. The Mu Ko Chang National Park offers miles upon miles of hiking trails. Here, you can see such astonishing sights as the roaring, tiered Klong Plu waterfall where you can swim in the lagoon at the fall’s base. Just offshore, snorkellers and scuba divers can explore living coral reefs. Along the coast, you can explore the local beachfront culture with stunning shorelines and villages, such as the pier-built Bang Bao. 

For nightlife, partiers head for Lonely Beach, or Hat Tha Nam, where the waterfront party scene never seems to end. Other beaches here include Klong Prao Beach with its scenic ocean views, outstanding foodie scene and lodging areas. White Sand Beach has soft sand, brilliant, clear teal waters and plenty of hotels for your holiday. The Night Food Market is a vibrant local cultural institution, while the Tree Top Adventure Park offers a Tarzan swing, tightropes and ziplines to thrill kids and adults alike.
