When one’s biggest worry concerns the sun’s position and its relation to the umbrella that is producing a cool and relaxing shade next to the beach, life is surely too nice. – Me, on my notepad while sitting on Lonely Beach in Koh Chang.
Is One Week on Koh Chang Enough?
Five days of beaches, scooters, and relaxation made our first visit to Thailand and the island of Koh Chang a memorable vacation. This place appeals to almost every kind of traveler and forces me ask this question: Is One Week on Koh Chang enough? Hardly, if you really want to understand any place and I’ll feel that way about everywhere in the world.
For more words about Koh Chang, you can check out Korea’s Gwangju News, a monthly magazine run by the Gwangju International Center. After getting back from our trip, I raced to put down as many words as I could about Elephant Island. In the meantime, take this photo walk through Koh Chang and enjoy, my friends!
Just about every day was spent being very boring and laying by the water on Koh Chang’s Lonely Beach. This was our first trip to an island paradise and as a result, we decided it would be best enjoyed doing nothing!
We did get a scooter for a day and rode around, stopping at this gorgeous scenic overlook.
Or we’d stop by cozy other beaches such as this one on Bailan Bay.
Then there was that day we climbed around at Treetop Adventure.
You know, though. There’s always something to true relaxation by the beach. Don’t you agree?
We visited during the holidays and were happy to find this sitting by the water one morning. It’s hard to be homesick when in a beautiful place like Koh Chang but seeing the Christmas Tree helped us feel more at home.
And then the sun would go down.
Even when the power goes out like it did our first night there, it’s easy to make the most out of it on Koh Chang with a candlelight dinner.
So what do you think? Is one week enough? I’d love read your thoughts in the comments section.
