Morning walk on Klong Prao beach, the longest beach of the island, starting at Coconut Beach Resort and ending at Magic Resort, if you don't mind to get wet when crossing Klong Prao estuary.
The estuary can be crossed easily at low tide.

A new place has been added in my recommendation list. Located on the south-west of Koh Chang in the bay of Bang Bao and directly on the pier, The Buddhaview is guesthouse, a restaurant and a lounge bar which offers a unique experience.
If you are looking for a place to stay, to eat, to have a drink or to just relax with an authentic atmosphere, then you should go there.

Awarded by TripAdvisor for several years and with a very good score on Booking.com, you will not be disappointed. If you want to know more about The Buddhaview, click on the picture below to read my review.

Almost 2 months without any update and you have maybe been wondering what's new in Koh Chang?
Well, it's the low season which means fewer tourists on the island but also grey and rainy days. For locals, it's a good time to have a break and spend holidays somewhere else but for people looking for relaxing and extremely quiet holidays, it's the right time. On top of that, you can now get very good deals as most of hotels and resorts are almost empty.

The weather is not that bad if you think that it's not burning like in central Europe or freezing like over there up north. It's not raining several days non-stop, we have rain, sometimes heavy rain, sometimes light showers, and then some sunbeams. There are lots of cloudy days but the temperatures are still good.
Just avoid the sea, there are red flags on the beaches, lots of strong rip currents and it's safer to stay on the sand or the best, at the pool. Don't risk your life!

Here are a few pictures from yesterday with my friend Loukpud at Long Beach, on the south-east of Koh Chang. If you go there you will also meet the big Lucky.

If travelling during the low season is something which doesn't bother you, then you should have a look at the good deals below. Some of them are very interesting.

It was cancelled this year but the Ultra-Trail Unseen Koh Chang is back and the new routes have been publsihed today.

The exact race dates haven't been released yet but it will be in February 2020. The registrations will open mid-August and it will be announced on our Facebook page and here on the website.
If you are planning to participate to one of the 4 races, don't wait for the last months to book a place where you will spend a night or more on the island. Like in the past years, the closest hotels, guesthouses and resorts on the east coast will be fully booked.

Meanwhile, you need to train, this is not an easy forest running, be prepared to sweat A LOT.

Some of you will have to spend one night in Bangkok and not far from Suvarnabhumi Airport before leaving Thailand.

I have tested and listed 5 hotels around the airport, from different categories and different budgets but the one I recommend and which is now my favourite is The Park Nine Suvarnabhumi hotel.
It's located 15 minutes from the airport, they have free shuttles, the hotel is new, modern, cosy and very relaxing. Rooms are spacious and clean, they have 2 restaurants, the swimming pool is beautiful, they have saunas and if you want to visit around, at 10 minutes walk there is a small street food market and a very nice temple which has free entrance.
Prices are reasonable and you can get very good deals.

Happy Songkran!!!!

Songkran is the Thai New Year's national holiday. Songkran starts on the 13th of April every year, but the holiday period extends from the 14th to 15th of April.
If you are leaving Koh Chang on Monday, expect to have a long waiting time at the ferry pier. It's the same every year, hours of waiting.
