Koh Chang is Thailand’s second largest island after Phuket. Once regarded as a haven for backpackers, in recent years Koh Chang has benefitted from carefully considered development and continues to reposition itself as an increasingly upmarket destination. The beautiful island offers visitors a quick and convenient escape and can be reached from Bangkok by air via 45-minute flight to the mainland town of Trat, followed by a short boat trip. With this in mind, owning a property on Koh Chang provides an excellent bolt-hole for Thai residents and expats alike, as well as being an exceptional investment opportunity for savvy buyers.
The attractions are obvious; visitors to the island can enjoy the relaxed beach life and the beautiful waters around the Koh Chang National Marine Park, the location of over 60 islands. The mountainous, forest-covered interior offers adventure, while beachfront bars and restaurants provide a vibrant and cosmopolitan nightlife.
