A bit of history today to change from the food, drinks and sunsets.
Yesterday was the celebration of the Battle of Koh Chang which took place on the 17th of January 1941 during the Franco-Thai war. The French won the battle against the Royal Thai Navy which lost a couple of ships; 2 sunk and others were damaged. After a month of engagement, French and Thai negotiated a piece which ended the war.
The Royal Thai Navy was here with some Officials to celebrate this commemoration which started with a monks ceremony.

Have you heard about Molecular Gastronomy? Allez Cuisine Restaurant is the only restaurant in Koh Chang proposing you this type of sophisticated cuisine. They don't have a lot of tables, they prefer the quality to the quantity that's why it's better to book in advance.
The Chef Bill has a good reputation and a big experience in famous resorts and hotels from Bangkok. He has recently participated to the Iron Chef Thailand TV show and will be next May to the TUCC (Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge).
Every Sunday Bill is creating a special menu that I recommend you to taste.

Lots of people are calling Koh Chang the Paradise island but it could also be named the Beautiful Sunsets island. A sunny, cloudy or even a rainy day can end with a beautiful and unique sunset. Orange, red, purple, pink, all the colours can be seen and every evening is different. Having your dinner or a drink on the beach and watching the sunset, this is priceless!

Monkeys in Koh Chang are very common and can be seen hanging on electric cables or near the main road or habitations but you have to remember that they are wild animals. You are not in a zoo or in a circus, those monkeys are not domesticated, they can bite and steal your personal effects.
Most of people visiting Koh Chang have never seen wild monkeys and want of course to take pictures and very often they are feeding them. Even if they are waiting for food, DO NOT FEED the monkeys!
Feeding the monkeys will get them used to it and will attract more. Their place is in the forest not near the dangerous roads. Lots of monkeys are dying because of that. Monkeys don't see the danger, they hang on electric cables, cross or stand to close to the roads creating accidents,eat what they find in garbages and die.
Be smarter than a monkey, look at them, take your pictures and leave, do not give them any kind of food!

Have you heard about the new treehouse of the Oasis? This is an original and relaxing place where you can enjoy the sunset while sipping your cocktail. Located in Lonely beach, they have few bungalows for rent, a restaurant, a bar and of course this unique terrace in a tree with a spectacular view to the sea.
This is a nice place with lovely, charming and very friendly owners. The place itself is very quiet and it's surrounded by a beautiful garden.
