About the Island Guide

In our Koh Chang, Koh Kood, Koh Mak and Koh Wai Island Travel Guide, we take a tour around the islands and along the way, give you all the information needed for a perfect visit to this most beautiful of locations in Thailand.

We have designed the guide so you can either browse in just one island area or you can hop onto the next. For Koh Chang, there are familiar guidebook style sections ranging from beaches to hotels, resorts and bungalows, restaurants and nightlife to things to do, how to get there and information, with of course, useful maps, all of which we hope will make those tricky decisions on how, where and when, just that little bit easier. We repeat these sections for Koh Kood and Koh Mak and to a lesser degree for Koh Wai.
