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.

You have maybe heard about the tropical storm Pabuk which is now coming to Thailand.
There is no alert for Koh Chang, this storm is taking the direction to the south-west of the country where strong winds and torrential downpours are forecast for next weekend (Surat Thani, Nakhon Sri Thammarart, Phatthalung, Songkhla, Pattani, Yala, Phetchaburi, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chumphon, Narathiwat, Ranong, Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi, Trang and Satun).
For now Koh Chang is not affected but the weather is not predictable, it could change, there could be rougher sea and stronger winds but hopefully no or only light rain.

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!

If you are planning to stay on Koh Chang for a long period or if you already are on the island and if you have one child or more, what will follow may interest you.
There is no international school on the island but a group of parents who are living and working on Koh Chang have decided to hire professional teachers to teach a bilingual primary school program, in English and in Thai.
The courses will start next Monday and there are still available places for your child, starting from 6 years old.
Send me an email for more details!
