Koh Chang

KOH CHANG

Idyllic Pleasure on Elephant Island

Situated a short ferry ride off the coast of Thailand’s eastern-most province Trat, Koh Chang is the second largest island in Thailand, and perhaps the most beautiful island. Seemingly endless stretches of white sand, swaying palms, and shady Casuarina trees create an environment conducive to total relaxation; although, if you desire, the complete menu of island adventures and water sports are on offer, too. Whether on the nearby mainland or on the island itself, meetings & incentives planners should consider Koh Chang for fun, distinct, relaxing, and rewarding functions.
