    This is Bangbao beach which seemed to cater for backpackers



    The sand is Boracay style, very soft a, white and powdery. Only problem is it contains Sandflies. Big problem on the island im told

    Thiis is the port the ferrys use in the high season


    Theres a resort next to it if you just want tto get of the boat and hit the beach, Appeared to be closed for low season. Looked nice enough though





    Strange choice of pool tiles






    The wife chose those shorts.


    In the low season the ferrys use the Au salat port which makes it a long songthaew ride to your gaff

    ok we got the bigger ferry from chang back to the mainland from Ao thammachat 350 baht for the car ferry and 4 peoples. good deal. (no double pricing im glad to see) i quite like ko chang, went last time 7 years ago not much reallly change. it cant?. most of its owned by the thai navy and it aint far from cambodia pretty sure the tourism potential will stay that way becauase of the thai military in the region . still i hope they can
    compromise. but terers no beer on board

    i posted up a couple of questions re accomadation on ko chang and bogon recommened a place called kacha which looked great and also cheap in low season right on the beach and only 1600 baht problem was i needed a cot for the nipper, extra bed was 1700 baht, go get fooked. i ended up at paddys palms, not on the beach but an awesome gaff and paid 1560 for an awesome apartment, although not on the beach

    thats the one bogan recommended and the price was great for me and my wife but room to small and i aint paying 1700 baht for a cot plus 1700 for the cot for the nipper

    Looks like a nice break mate. We used to head for Bang Bao when we'd go to Koh Chang. Nice and quiet. Bit late now, but half way down the island there's a place to rent out kayaks and head out to 3 little islands just off the coast. The 2 kids prolly would have liked it.

    Bang Bao fishing village is a bit of a tourist trap but has some good views and is the departure point for dive boats




    Here you will find the usual touristy souvenirs such as seashells, rubber chickens etc, theres a couple of restaurants down the pier that are ok though










    My oldest boy amused his little brother by somehow getting his arm stuck in a chair at a seafood restaurant we were in.



    i had the scallops

    i spent a week in Bo's many years ago. The rooms aren't terrible as they at least had mossie nets on the beds and a balcony. beer was run as a help yourself but write what you had and pay later deal which seemed a bit risky.

    got some pics somewhere.
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    Great thread BLT and thanks for sharing.
    Surf was definitely up thogh I was shocked that you weren't wearing a man-kini a lá Sasha Cohen. 555

    The pics will make for great memories when you're 64...just get that young noi out of the Koh Chang album (or it could come back to bite awfully hard.)

    Thanks again for sharing. Sites around Koh Kood are supposedly a divers paradise though not in rough sea conditions. ��
