“one of the last unspoilt places in Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

wow what a great find this island is, its Thailand the way it should be, a sleepy little island with no high rise hotels, a great place to get your blood pressure down, no cars make it safe and fun to get around, some very nice bungalows for rent just 2-3 minutes from the harbour, the island has one nice beach good for swimming that has cheap resturants. on the down side there is quite alot of plastic etc in the water mainly washed down from Bangkok.

“Slow and dreamy don't go on a Wednesday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

The Island seems to be asleep most of the day and night (which is very nice) the sights are all OK but there is not much to see at the palace site, the only restaurant that we could find open on the Wednesday night was a seafood restaurant in the town which was on the shore side of the main street just across the road from the Ko Si Chang Palace Hotel it was fine I had squid to start and it was very nice the rest of the meal was passable, the crossing on the ferry was very pleasant and the ferry left dead on time both ways (on the hour)

“Not many western tourists!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Ko Si Chan is a small island just offshore from Si Racha.
It's about a 40 min ferry ride to the island from the public pier (plenty of eating opportunities here). The small town of Si Racha is nothing special but basically devoid of western tourists.
You can charter a powerful tuk tuk unique to the island. Basically a car engine mounted on a type of tuk tuk. Perfectly safe and good fun. Driver will give you a tour of the island and wait for you at various points of interest for about 200baht.
A good day out if you're unfortunate enough to be stuck somewhere like Pattaya!

“Beach Front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

White sands, green and blue water were really refreshing for all of us. The travel to the island by boat was a great experience, with stoppages for scuba diving for viewing the corals
