What makes Koh Chang one of the best islands in Thailand is that its pace of life is incredibly relaxed. And although the weather is hot – after all, this is South East Asia – as for the rest of the islands in Thailand, Koh Chang gets a lovely marine breeze that makes it all the more enjoyable (and way more bearable compared to the still heat of inland Cambodia).
I spent my days in Koh Chang busy relaxing. Thailand beaches are perfect for that, and Klong Koi didn’t disappoint: it is super quiet. I normally went to the beach, swimming in the shallow waters, cooling down in the infinity pool, taking nap after nap in the shade, having a coconut by the beach during the day and an icy cold beer at sunset and eventually making my way to one of the restaurants on the waterfront to enjoy a lovely meal. And since it is so quiet I got some great quality sleep at night – it was really good to recharge my batteries after a month of intense travels.
