Literally, there is no more Bang Bao Beach. It became the Pier and Walking Street Plaza. There are two Bang Bao Pier locations on Google Map, one is the Original and the other is the latest Bang Bao Pier. By history, the new location of...More

A floating village on Bang Bao pier, definitely worth visiting. Good restaurants and plenty of touristy shops to amble through whilst wandering along the very large pier. There is a small supermarket and even a large health centre built over the water. Lots of colour...More

Lovely stilted village with a few bars to sit and while away a few hours. Well worth a visit. Selection of shops selling usual Thai tourist tat found elsewhere on the island.

If you like quiet and relaxed this is the place for you! A little on the pricey side around holidays. But perfect for simple and easy family days.

But it's a lively shopping, dining and harbour area. A must see for anyone visiting Koh Shang! Rent a motorbike and travel here by yourself. No need to use taxi or minibus.

For a morning out exploring this was our first stop. Quaint shops with souvenir bits n bobs. Fresh fish restaurants, cafes and bars. A stroll down to the bottom of the pier and photos from the lighthouse. The breeze cooling the walk was lovely.

Hire a scooter and spend 4/5 days there max. You can explore the whole island (apart from the centre which it is illegal for anyone to access due to it being a national park) in a couple of days. This’ll leave you time to... More
