Attraction Details :

Koh Chang is a large island covering an area of approximately 18 sq. km. located 20 km. from downtown Ranong and 4 km. from Koh Phayam. The island is inhabited by some 80 households whose main occupations are cashew nut–one of the country’s best varieties–para rubber plantations, and coastal fishery. There is also a local product center operated by the Koh Chang Housewife Group producing wine from cashew flesh and various cashew nut products. Koh Chang is the habitat of a small variety of hornbill: the oriental pied hornbills that fly between Koh Chang and nearby islands. As the inhabitants of Koh Chang never catch nor hunt them, the hornbills are familiar with humans and tame and easily encountered, except for the period of March-April when they nest and take care of their chicks. Various activities are available on Koh Chang; such as, trekking to hilltop viewpoints, sightseeing biking, herbal steam at Wat Koh Chang, hornbill watching, and fishing for various fish like grouper, sea perch, and Spanish mackerel. Accommodation is available.
