We have just spent 6 days on the island of Ko Chang, a 5 hour bus ride from Bangkok. We jumped off the ferry and straight into a 'taxi' to the south of the island. We ended up in a room on stilts straight off the pier , we could see the sea through the floor boards!

We spent a couple of days on the beach nearby but the sea seemed dirty so moved to a smaller island - Ko Wai. This would have been the perfect tropical island paradise but due to an exeptionally high tide there was virtually no beach, the sea was much clearer and we managed to go snorkelling at last.

We spent one night in a VERY basic hut then, after a morning on the beach and in the sea we got the boat back to Bang Bao.

From here we went to White Sands at the north of the island for a day before returning to Bangkok to collect out visas for Indonesia.

Tomorrow we are heading south for some more island hopping so may be away from fast internet , we will try to send a christmas blog.

Hope you're all enjoying the run up to Christmas!

Beach Bang Bao

Looks nice
Hi, Bang Bao looks really nice. I have never heard of it, and thought I'd seen all of the islands of Thailand pretty much. It gives me hope for Thailand! :)
