PHOTO DIARY - MY TRIP TO KOH CHANG & BANGKOK


2016 - a year full of travels and adventures - ended in Thailand. With a lot of excitement, tropical weather, summer tan, delicious Thai food and lovely people I started well into 2017 in KOH CHANG.

Koh Chang is Thailand's third largest island, which is located in the eastern part of Thailand near the border to Cambodia. It's also called "The Elephant Island" because of its elephant shaped headland.

Beside tanning and drinking lots of delicious fresh fruit juices there are numerous activities to keep you occupied - everything from elephant trekking to scuba diving.

Koh Chang isn't quite striking as other islands and doesn't have mesmerizing aquamarine blue water that you see on photos but the water is still clear and blue and the vast majority of the island is undeveloped rainforest.

I stayed at Kacha Resort on the White Sand Beach and by far the most touristy beach on the island. I spent amazing days there, swimming for hours in the Indian Ocean, watching beautiful sunsets, eating a lot of streetfood and Pad Thai, working out, playing with elephants, snorkeling from island to island, quad biking in the jungle, exploring the culture and enjoying life - and even more. Put some sound on and enjoy the pictures!
