The Diving around Koh Chang
Warm waters, little to no current and an abundance of healthy coral makes Koh Chang a superb spot for scuba diving. Visibility is best during the high season (Nov – Apr) with turtles, reef sharks and bump head parrotfish frequently spotted all year round. Koh Chang also boasts the largest recreational diving wreck in Thailand (100m+), the HTMS Chang. Just 20 minutes away by boat, the wreck is full of life both inside and out. Sightings of Whalesharks around the HTMS Chang have increased significantly in the last few years.
Although just a few hours away from Bangkok, Koh Chang is one of the true hidden gems in the Gulf of Thailand. The island’s mountainous landscape boasts a rich diversity of fauna and flora with lush tropical rainforests that hide secret waterfalls. The white sand beaches, pristine warm waters and unmissable sunsets seduce both locals and visitors, who instantly fall in love with its natural wonders and laidback atmosphere. Escape the mainstream tourist destinations and discover an authentic Thai island.
