How time flies! Welcome to Thailand, Land of Smile and Koh Chang. Still travelling with my friend Rimvydas which I met in Kyoto. After arriving in the evening in Bangkok we spent a night in this busy city and went the next day to Koh Chang. You can reach Koh Chang from Ekamai Bus Terminal in Bangkok or just book a minivan transfer. Coast is about 600-900 Bath one way, depends on the company. One way takes about 7-8 hours from Bangkok. Depends on the traffic and where you want to stay on the island. We decided not staying in the famous white sand beach area are but at lonely beach.

Koh Chang is a great place for cruising around by scooter (150 Bath per day), diving or just relaxing. Here you find cheap and delicous food (for 50 Bath!) and hotels. Stayed first at Nature Beach Resort Hotel (beautful beach but crap rooms) for 600 Bath a night and changed later to Sunset Huts Hotel/Bungalows (nice rooms and hammock in front of the entrane but rocky beach) for 500 Bath.

In the evening there was always something going on because there was a little “pub street” at lonely beach with a couple of backpackers and travellers.

One day I joined the” lazy dive trip” with BB Divers. Very conveninent, just started after midday and we arrived back after 9pm. Had altogehter 3 dives (including 1 nigh dive); at HTMS Wreck, Hin Luk Bat and Hin Rap.

Another day, I joined the Party Boat trip, which was a funny day out with partying, snorkeling, drinking, eating. Started at 10:30 in the morning and returned after sunset.

Was great times in Koh Chang as you can see on the next pics :-)
