Koh Chang is the largest island when compared with other 51 islands in Trat Province. This island is the second largest island in Thailand after Phuket Island which is Thailand’s biggest island. Koh Chang covers an area of 429 sq. kms., comprised of fine beaches, coral reefs, and rich marine life. It is also rich in natural resources, teeming with hills, forests, waterfalls and streams, the latter being an important source of freshwater. Many fruit orchards spotted the whole island.
In Trat province, 312 km. from Bangkok, the second-largest island in Thailand, 30 km in length and 8 km in width, was discovered, and then became one of the most famous sites among travelers. It is called Koh Chang because its appearance is like a sleeping elephant. Koh Chang is covered with dense rain forest and with the relative savage nature, bisected by the steep wall of mountains.
Considered as one of the most untouched island in Thailand, Koh Chang became an easy-found paradise for thousands of tourists from all over the world. Those who long for the pure, calm, peaceful, and magnificent island could feel like being in your own world here.As the matter of the fact that Koh Chang today has changed a little because of the flowing of tourism industry, it still enormously keeps its beauty and its characteristic features for nature lovers to appreciate.
