Snorkeling at Koh Chang

September 15th, 2009 | Posted by NK in Thailand

Koh Chang isn’t really famous for diving or snorkeling and it is certainly possible to find better place in Thailand for that, but but Koh Chang is just such a charming island without too much of the fuss and noise you’ll find at the bigger tourist destinations in Thailand – not said that Koh Chang doesn’t have closed resorts (to make sure the turist doesn’t get to close to the Thais…  😉  ), a couple of girlybars and a couple of clubs, but it’s really nothing like Phuket, Koh Samui or Pattaya – not at all.

But Koh Chang does offer diving and it’s in fact nice – not too crowded..
When I was at Koh Chang with my Girlfriend back in March 2008 we started out with a bit of  snorkeling around an island just off the west coast of Koh Chang – I think it was Ko Su Wan or Ko Rom, just a 20 minutes trip with the speedboat…

There we’re lot of fishes and life on our small snorkeling-trip

As you can see Koh Chang is in fact a nice place to snorkel and combined with Koh Chang being so charming I can only recommend going there…

    Hi Niels

    Thank you very much for sharing this information.
    I’m going to visit Koh Chang together with my family in the Spring 2010 and i’m happy to hear that Koh Chang is really as nice as we have been told.
    Which dive company did you use? and where did you stay at Koh Chang?

    Best regards,

    Hi Hans!

    You’re welcome – I’m happy to hear that you like my diveblog.
    I think you will love Koh Chang in the spring – we we’re there at the same time.
    Koh Chang has quite a lot of good dive companies – we used White Sand Dive Centre – Donny and his team are really cool!
    We decided to stay at White Sand Beach in the nice hotel Koh Chang Lagoon Resort which I can recommend – btw its not a Resort, but a Hotel right on the beach.

    Have a great trip!
