Chang Island

Chang Island is a popular tourist resort located in the Southeast of Thailand. It is washed by the waters of the Gulf of Thailand and formally belongs to the province of Trat, like the other 50 islands of the archipelago, with which it is integral.

Translated from Thai, “chang” means “elephant”. If you look at the island from above, its outlines resemble this majestic animal.

In contrast to Phuket or Samui, the tourist infrastructure here is poorly developed, the entire archipelago is declared a reserve, so development is carried out extremely carefully.

The lack of noisy parties and numerous shops is offset by natural beauties. Chang is almost entirely covered in the jungle, and the golden beaches are washed by the friendly emerald waters.

Holidays at this resort will appeal to those who want to relax from the bustle of the city and enjoy the exotic beauties of Southeast Asia.
