Awarded by TripAdvisor and rated 9.4 on booking.com, this new resort is now for sale.
Harley Moon Hideaway is located in the center of Bailan, and it has been working very well. Unfortunately, for personal reason, the owners have decided to sell it.
There are 7 spacious furnished bungalows with a/c, 2 extra bedrooms and 2 more bedrooms for the staff. In the middle of the beautiful garden, there is a swimming pool and it's just at 5 minutes walk to the beach.
It's a good opportunity if you are planning to move to Koh Chang and start a business because with this one you won't have to spend in renovation and it already has a very good reputation.

New on Koh Chang and at White Sand beach!
Alaturka Ko Chang is a new and the only Turkish restaurant on the island and it worth a visit.
The restaurant is located on the main road and on the hillside side, less than 100 meters from Marin Coffee and Grand View Resort. It was formerly Pink Seafood Restaurant.
Here is Google Street view:
The service is very good, they really care about their customers and the service is fast. The plates are very tasty and it's a good change if you want to try something different than Thai or European cuisines.
You should really stop by, you won't be disappointed. On top of that, they have vegetarian dishes, good grilled meat and homemade bread and lavas.
For more details, you can visit their Facebook page.

A new place has been reviewed and added to my favourites list.
Riverview Hostel is a brand new stylish hostel located on Klong Prao estuary, in a quiet and peaceful area and very close to well-known restaurants. One of the nicest but also quietest sandy beaches of the west coast is at less than 2 minutes thanks to the free shuttle speedboat they have for their guests.
They are 3 dormitories as well as a Deluxe room for 2 persons. The staff is very cool and helpful, the atmosphere inside is very friendly but the best part is the terrace facing the river. It's a lovely area to relax, enjoy a drink, chat with people and wait for the amazing sunset.
If you are travelling on a budget but are still looking for a very nice place, then Riverview Hostel is made for you. They are also rated as Exceptional on Booking.com!
