      What beach is the best beach for thirty-somethings?

      by DianaJ15 Online Now Aug 31, 2013 at 8:26 AM

      Hi guys! I will be living on Ko Chang island for at least six months to a year. I hear Lonely Beach is the place to be; however, I am over thirty-five and don't want to party every night all night. I want to live in a bungalow preferably on the beach (but I'm open), where there is a more laid-back mature crowd (like thirty- somethings), who party on weekends and maybe hit the bars just a few days out of the week. I will be running my internet business and just don't want to be kept up all night every night. Any suggestions?

    • Koh Chang to Malaysia

      by MTD888 Online Now Apr 13, 2013 at 4:16 AM

      Hi I'm thinking of going to Koh Chang for about 8 days and then I'd like to spend about 5 days on a beach in Malaysia (not sure where). Is there direct transport from Koh Chang to a nice place in Malaysia? Can you recommend somewhere in Malaysia ... and how to get there?

      What I'm trying to avoid is having to go from Trat - Bangkok - to KL - to somewhere else ... it will take up too much time!

      Pattaya to Ko Chang

      Is there a good bus to Ko Chang from Pattaya? A bus with good seats, maybe a restroom. Where does it leave from? What time does it run? How often does it go? What is the cost and the time it takes? I have seen an ad for VIP bus, but it looks like they never got off the ground. Thanks!

      Where to stay on the Island?

      by Roelofsim Online Now Dec 22, 2011 at 4:36 AM

      Hi,

      We want to visit Koh Chang when we travel to Thailand. Now we need to decide which part to go to on the Island. Hope you have some suggestions. We like some luxury and quiet beaches that have snorkeling possibilities. Furthermore we like local food and some relaxed bars. So we are not looking for the main tourist area, but there must be some activity around us. So a bit like Sairee beach at Koh Tao 10 years ago.

      Regards, Roelof

      we arrive in Bangkok about 3 pm on a thursday at the end of June - and want a week on a tranquil beach somewhere. can anyone help us with the following questions:
      - Can we get to Ko chang that day or are we better off staying the night in Bangkok?
      - As there are four of us (two adults and two kids) - would it be best to get a taxi or a bus?
      - Any suggestions of a nice, relaxing area in Ko Chang where we can try to find accommodation? Would prefer somewhere not too commercial...
      - We'd like a bungalow on the beach - doesn't have to be fancy, just clean and with nice sea views somewhere without late night parties :)

      Grateful for any suggestions :)

      Weather conditions in July?

      by bergensanne Online Now Mar 15, 2011 at 1:25 PM

      We're a family thinking of spending a week on Koh Chang in July, but have heard that the weather can be more unpredictable there than other islands (like Koh samui)during the wet season - also that there are heavier rainfalls when they come. Anyone who has experience from this time of the year?

      Would also appreciate advice on what area would be good for a family (kids 8 and 11) wanting peace and quiet by the beach. We'd like basic and clean accommodation by the beach - suggestions welcome :)

      Koh Chang swimming

      by pacsail Online Now Dec 11, 2010 at 6:41 AM

      My wife and I have been coming to Thailand for 5 years and have visited most of the islands on both sides of the mainland. Because I like clear water and swim long distance, we've really enjoyed Koh Tao, having coral & tropical fish, right off the beach from our Bungalows. Is there a beach in Koh Chang similar to Koh Tao with clear water right off the beach and perhaps a bit of coral and tropical fish to keep it entertaining? If not, would you have another destination you'd recommend, I'd appreciate it.

      Thank-you. Marc

      Hi there!
      I have loosely-booked 6 nights on Koh Chang in the first week of May - but am wondering if I should choose another island, as someone mentioned Koh Chang may be too hot? Bearing in mind I am from NZ, and anything over 35 degrees means I turn into a hot mess.

      Any advice as to where to go in the first week of May in Thailand would be of great help!!!

      by chris5153 Online Now Oct 5, 2009 at 2:17 PM

      Hi,

      It will be my first time on Ko Chang. I like to get around on a motorbike as I have done previously on island's like Ko Phangan & Ko Samui. I was wondering if the roads are safe to ride on. I would probably be travelling from White Sand Beach to as far as Kai Bae Beach & Lonely Beach. I know some of the roads are bad & I don't want to take chances but it would be good if this stretch of road was OK. Also how long would it take to ride this stretch & do you have to wear a helmet (good advise I know but is it enforced).
