Koh Chang Attractions

Chao Po Koh Chang
(the Godfather of Koh Chang)

This Chinese style shrine in the north of the island, with two huge elephants guarding the entrance, has been a saviour to the Khon Kard for generations.

Throughout the history of the island, when the fishermen found themselves facing a strong monsoon or a poor harvest, they would seek guidance from the Chao Po Koh Chang. Island folklore records amazing stories of answered prayers when people have asked for help at the shrine.

 

Ban Salak Phet and Ban Rong Than

These fishing villages are located on the southwest of Ko Chang. Secluded Salak Phet has long provided a shelter for storm-lashed fishing boats to batten down their hatches. Nowadays, the village is popular for its abundance of fresh seafood and home-stay accommodation, where visitors can get a real feel for living (and fishing) like a local. It's also possible to charter inexpensive boats to go out exploring or snorkeling.

 

Bang Bao Fishing Village

This is an atmospheric village built on wooden stilts jutting up out of the sea. All the houses are connected by wooden walkways. The fisher folks' lifestyle and all the succulent seafood are two lures for tourists. Nowadays, you can really wade in for some cultural immersion by booking a home-stay with the villagers. Another bonus is chartering a vessel to cruise around the archipelago.

 

Ao Bai Lan

Next to Hat Kai Bae, about 1 km. if you take the bike trail winding along under cliffs and mountains, this bay offers some fantastic scenery. Ao Bai Lan is also an ideal place for getting some peace and tranquility. If you're looking for more affordable accommodation, this is the place for you.

 

Naval Battleground

Situated on the south of Ko Chang near Ao Salak Phet is the Naval Battleground. On 17 January, 1941, the Thai and French navies battled over a border dispute. Even today, there are buoys showing the position of the sunken Royal Thai Navy's ships. Each year, during the festival to commemorate the Thai victory, government agencies make religious merit by floating garlands on the sea in honour of those who perished during the battle.

A museum has been built on Laem Ngnob Beach, on the mainland, with an exhibition of Koh Chang's naval history on display. On top of the building is a statue of Krom Luang Chumpon Khet Udomsak, a key figure in the battle, with his face turned to look at Koh Chang. Every year, the people of Trat province hold memorial services from the 17th to 21 st of January, floating garlands in the sea, to honour those who perished. The actual battle was near Ao Salak Petch and the wreck is now a popular dive site.
