It's now the low season on Koh Chang, beaches are empty and the island starts to be very quiet.
The weather is still fine, we've got small showers but temperatures are still very good. You can now get very good deals if you are looking for quiet holidays, look at the different booking offers which are on this website.
Almost everybody is now travelling with a phone. Phones are more than a part of our family, they are a part of ourself and to live without a phone can be very difficult for some of you and what will you do the day it breaks or it's not working anymore while you are on Koh Chang? Will you survive?
Some people will say you will need to go or to send it to Trat or to Bangkok to get it fixed. Don't worry, there is a very good phone repair shop on the island and it's located in Klong Prao, close to the temple.
They sell lots of phone accessories, as well as Prepaid SIM cards but they also repair phones. They have lots of genuine spare parts.

A new hotel has been added to the website.
Some of you may have a late or early flight when you will arrive or leave from Thailand. In this case you will need to spend one night, or more, in a hotel close to the airport.
There are lots of hotels in Bangkok area and sometimes the choice can be difficult. That's why when I can, I try them for you and if I like them I add them to the website with all the information you need.
You can find here the other hotels I have already tried myself:
This hotel I have just added is Suvarnabhumi Suite Hotel, located at 10 minutes from the airport. Rooms are not very expensive compare to the others I have already reviewed. The level is different of course but the quality and comfort I got compare to what I paid, for one night it was perfect.
