Dec 25, 2015 - Snorkeling for Christmas at Koh Chang!

We went to Koh Chang for the snorkeling, but unfortunately it was a bit lacking. Our "glamping" site was supposed to have the best snorkeling on the island but the lack of visibility meant there wasn't much to see. We took a boat to some other nearby islands with better snorkeling BUT they feed the fish on these trips. Horrible. At one place, the seargent majors kept swimming after Christopher (I think because he had a blue rash guard on, the same as the boat person feeding the fish). It was quite freaky how they wouldn't leave him alone....

Feb 1, 2014 - Elephant trail

We set of in a safari jeep and we stopped to pick up other people who were on the same trip. After a while we arrived at the elephant camp , we were told to climb on to a platform so we could get onto the elephants back and then locked in with A pole And away we went scary yep the elephants slow footed but precise in where they walked climbing down steep rocks that led to a dry river bed then under a bridge which we had to duck so as not to hit our heads. We then went through this jungle till we came to another river but this time it had...

Jan 7, 2012 - Koh Chang

Hallo ihr Lieben, Heute abend bin ich von Koh Chang nach Pattaya zurückgekehrt. Die Fahrt zur Insel war ein Erlebnis an sich! Organisiert haben wir sie über einen Uhrmacher (!) Den meine Freundin hier kennt. Der wiederum kennt jemanden usw. Auf diese Weise kam ich zu einem Minibus, der mich zur Fähre nach Koh Chang bringen sollte. Der aber hat mich wieder mitten im Nirgendwo abgesetzt, wo ich wiederum für den Rest des Transfers erneut bezahlen sollte - mehr als das Doppelte des ersten Fahrpreises. Aber da man ja nun schon irgendwo im...

Dec 27, 2010 - Visa run to Cambodia

A nightmare day to Cambodia. As our visa expired today for Thailand, today we had to go to Cambodia to exit Thailand and re enter to get another visa. We waved bye bye to Koh Chang after spending another relaxing boxing day on the beach and saying goodbye to our friends. Our trip today was booked from Koh Chang to Cambodia border then back to Bangkok. We left early and set off on our mini bus crossing the water on the ferry. After a not too bad journey we arrived at a hotel at 1pm where we were told to have lunch. Whilst in the hotel, the...

Dec 25, 2010 - Christmas day in paradise

We went to such a great party last night. We met a couple of girls from London who are really sweet and they joined us and Mel. We started in a few bars in the town and made our way down to the beach after that. There were 3 bars on the beach set up with sound systems playing loud music and we danced the night away. In the morning I was feeling a bit delicate from the late night so we spent Christmas day down the beach. Mainly we were swimming in the sea as it was so hot. In the afternoon we went for massages and had our Christmas dinner...

Dec 24, 2010 - The days of Koh Chang

What a great 5 days we have had in Koh Chang. The beach is stunning and the sun is so warm, we have been spending our days down the beach playing Frisbee, bat and ball and sunbathing. I bought a lilo and have actually been swimming in the sea. In the evenings we have been watching movies and visiting bars. They play live music everywhere so we have been well entertained. Joss has taught me how to play chess and we've been continuing the theme of playing cards. Melvin arrived a few days ago which is great, we have also met another group of...

Dec 19, 2010 - Koh Chang

We moved in to our new pad this morning. We downgraded to a 500BHT room but its a cute little soft wood bungalow with a hammocked porch and what seems like a front garden partitioned with rocks. The bungalow has windows all around the outside walls, so you can open them out and get fresh air and light. The claret curtains remind me of centre parks and we have a mosquito net above the bed which is like a tent... very cosy. After moving bungalow we headed to the palm lined beach and sunbathed on the soft white sand. The sea is clear and warm...

Dec 18, 2010 - Koh Samet to Koh Chang

We set off today late at midday. Although Koh Chang is not far east of Koh Samet you have to go back to the mainland, travel to Trat and cross again on the boat. We arrived at Ban Pe shortly before 2pm and couldn't get a mini bus to Trat. In the end we got a 2 hour Tuk Tuk for GBP20. By the time we arrived at Koh Chang off the ferry it was dark and we had to endure another 40 minute Tuk Tuk ride down to lonely beach. Koh Chang is the 3rd biggest island in Thailand and it's English name means Elephant island. We eventually arrived at Lonely...
