Island Tours?

Hi

Is there such a thing as an tour around Koh Chang or is it a DIY job in a "taxi" of sorts? If so is there a route thats best to ask for?

Staying at the Amari and would like to see the rest of the island in reasonable comfort not up to too much hiking!

Also are there fishing trips to be had ?

Many thanks

TB

There are fishing trips tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g580110-i9814-k426…

Island tour depends on the driver 100%. There are offerings but ...

Best if you can drive a motorbike and do it in 2 days, 1 day west coast, 1 day east coast. There is only 1 road "around" the island, it's not a round trip. The gap between Bang Bao and Salak Phet is still there.

Scooter & a map is easier and far cheaper, but it is hard to miss some sights if you haven't been there before and don't know the area. You can do the west coast by public transport easily enough but this isnt possible on the east coast.

Colin from Coco Dee Bo Tours ( www.cocodeebokohchang.com ) , who posts here, will sort you out if you want a day trip that will take in all the main sights. Likewise, Dirk from O & D Travel in the centre of Klong Prao village, email < kohchangdirk@gmail.com > can arrange for a car & driver to take you around the east coast taking in the places most visitors won't see.

There are fishing trips, usually figure on around 1,500 Baht for the day & try to get one that doesn't take Russian tour groups. :-)

Scooter is a must on Koh Chang. We hired one on all four days we were there. It is possible to see everything in one day if you set off early enough. But the scenery and the freedom just compels you to repeat in case you missed anything first time around. Around the un developed eastern/south eastern side of the island there is very little traffic
