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!

Don't feed the monkeys
Don't feed the monkeys Don't feed the monkeys!

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.

Few days ago I updated the link of the 2015 Thai holidays calendar which is located completely on the bottom the this page. You may wonder why this link is important. Here is the reason (pictures from https://www.facebook.com/groups/wiparkkohchang/):


Long weekends attract also a lot of Thai people which are all visiting Koh Chang by car and when it's time to go back home the waiting time to the ferry can be very, very, extremely very long. If you have a plane to catch be aware that it will take more time than usual. 
When you are planning your trip, just check that you will not have to leave during one of those crazy days otherwise you will have to be very patient and wish that you checked-out early enough to not miss your flight.

Again, Happy New Year to all of you and thank you for following us and for visiting Koh Chang!
There has been a lot of happenings yesterday evening, pubs and restaurants were full with lots of food, drinks, music and lights. Resorts had their own celebration with special meals or buffets, they were also full and for the ones who are located on the different beaches, there were lots of shows and all ended with fireworks, fire shows, music, parties and happiness.
Now it's time to digest all of that, recover from this busy night and the beach is now the best place to relax ;)

The excellent Koh Chang Guide Application has just been updated. For now it works only with iPhones and iPads but soon it should be also available for Android devices.
If you haven't installed it, click on the picture below or look at it in the App Store.
All resorts, restaurants, attractions,... have been listed, reviewed and located on the Koh Chang map. If you enable the location, you can even see what is nearby you. This is a great and very useful tool if you are in the island or if you want to prepare your trip.
And like our website this application is independent, they don't accept payment to get a good review or be listed, the reviews are just based on their own and their friends experiences.
