“a wonderfully quirky island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

It's worth getting on the dodgy wooden ferry at Si Racha for 45 minutes to experience the true magic of Koh si Chang; it's a working small island with a lovely park which was the home of an old royal summer palace. There's also a Buddist monastery & shrine as well as a chinese shrine. There is a small beach in the royal park and another one, with shops & food places close to it; it's a safe shallow beach. There are quite a few places to stay all over the island from isolated bungalows to the north & old fishing boats up on land at Rim Talay (?) resort next to Pan & David's restaurant as well as an amazing building built by an architecture professor over a number of years which is now a resort.

“Relaxing Quiet Thai beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

What I liked about this beach: it wasn't crowded. Prices are fair for Thai tourists. Just be careful of the taxi tuk tuk/ motorbike. Don't let them rip you off. If you want to stay overnight on the weekend next ti the beach, make sure to reserve ahead of time.

“We liked the fact that it is a quiet island”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

We liked the fact that it is a quiet island. It would be a lot nicer place without rubbish. We ate food by the beach but thought it was expensive and the place stank. Our kids did enjoyed playing at the beach.
The best way to see the island is to rent a motor bike. We also ate at Pan and David's. It is the only place to get proper western food but quite expensive. 5 slices of tomatoes with dressing for 80 baht.
Again Thai beach would be so much more beautiful without rubbish.
