Koh Chang (elephant island) is Thailand’s second largest island and is located in the far east of the Gulf of Thailand.  It boasts a well-known Marine National Park, is only a short walk from several beaches which are good for swimming and a short drive from the night life and entertainment in Lonely Beach and Bang Bao.

Koh Chang is approximately a 40 minute flight away from Bangkok Airport. You can be collected from the Trat Airport and transferred to the Ferry. From the pier, take a beautiful scenic journey across to the Island until the southern quiet village of Bailan .  Transfers are available to Harley Moon Hideaway which is a mere 30 minutes from the ferry.  While comfortably outside of the hustle and bustle of town, it is within walking distance of the local villages and buzzing nightlife!
