Tomorrow will be Valentine's Day which means that if you are a man and don't want to spend the whole day with an angry wife or girlfriend you have to do something and act as a Gentleman.
Lots of resorts and restaurants will have a Valentine's Day evening or menu. You can already find red roses or useless things full of hearts in 7/11 and other shops. But if you want to get something bigger and nicer, why not to offer a beautiful bouquet of flowers?
Koh Chang Flowers, also known as KohChang Wedding, is now taking pre-orders. They can also deliver from White Sand beach to Lonely Beach.
They are located in the south of Klong Prao, just nearby Bhu Tarn Resort and IPH Clinic.
If you are more food than flowers, why not to enjoy 2 Strawberry Snowices? Up to tomorrow evening when you will buy to your Love one Strawberry Snowice at Suncity View you will get one free for you.
Suncity View has moved and they are now located at Himmel Guesthouse in Lonely Beach.

It has been a long time since the last update. I've been very busy to reply to all the emails and messages I've received on Facebook and Instagram. To be honest, sometimes I get very weird or very funny messages but I all the time reply, no matter what!
The weather on Koh Chang has been very nice if we don't speak about the small showers we got. Temperatures are fine, don't worry, you won't have to wear your winter jacket, gloves and hat. A swimming suit and a cap to protect your head from the sun will be enough.
Every year TripAdvisor is awarding places which got the biggest amount of good reviews. And since few years I try to follow them and list all the awarded resorts, hotels, B&B, guesthouses and hostels.
This year there has been 52 winners. Welcome and congratulation to the new ones who have joined the list.
To make it easy I have dispatched them by beach area. For each place awarded you have a short description and all the useful information as their website address, Facebook page, contact email and where to get the best rates. Enjoy!

Julien from EXPLORATION junkie came to Koh Chang last October for his holidays and he did a jungle trek with Toon from Jungle Fever. Toon is an experienced guide and a nature lover that I really recommend if you want to discover Koh Chang wildlife.
Never go to the jungle by yourself without a guide. Some people have already been lost and been obliged to spend a night alone in the dark trying to find their way back. Be also sure that your body can take the heat, humidity and steep hills. If you have difficulties to walk or have a heart problem, stay on the beach or at the pool, it will be safer. Be also sure to have a good walking shoes, the ground can be slippery, wet, there are sometimes crawling creatures and lots of leeches which are waiting to suck your blood.
Julien has done an interesting virtual tour of his trek. You can find his story, pictures and video on his website: explorationjunkie.com/koh-chang-jungle-trekking
Have a look at his video:

The new Koh Chang Guide is now available online. As always, it's full of useful information if you are planning to visit Koh Chang or if you already are in Koh Chang. Keep the paper version in your bag, it doesn't take a lot of place and you will have all Koh Chang Maps. You can get it almost anywhere on the island, ask to your hotel or resort's reception, I'm sure they have a copy for you... and it's free!

Christmas is coming fast,and Koh Chang is getting more and more busy. If you haven't booked your hotel or resort yet for Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve, hurry up! It may be already too late to get the best places but if you still don't know where to stay, have a look at my recommendation list: Where to stay
A new resort has been added to my list, Tarzan Island Resort and Restaurant is a Thai family business located in Bailan. It's the perfect place if you want to rest in a quiet area but to be close to the active Lonely Beach.
Have you already planned where to spend Christmas Eve? At your resort or outside in a restaurant?
Here are some ideas:
|Peninsula Beach Resort||Oasis||Nature Beach Resort||Paddy's Palm Irish Pub|
