For the everyday practical requirements of your holiday, we have pulled together all the Koh Chang information into this section.
Koh Chang now has banks, currency exchanges and ATMs on most beaches. The island is currently upgrading to fibre internet, though not all hotels will provide it. 4G is is also available on the island.
For medical needs, there are 2 hospitals, one public and one private as well as local clinics and a good dentist.
We have dedicated one whole page to rip-currents, which do occur on the beaches at certain times of year. It’s worth taking the time to familiarise yourself with how to spot them and for and the correct procedures in dealing with them, if you get caught.
And finally, we give you a phone directory. Please note that numbers do change and English is not always spoken.
