Favorite thing: The island of Ko Chang, meaning elephant island, is Thailand's second largest island after Phuket. Ko Chang is situated in the province of Trat in the east of Thailand close to the border with Cambodia.

Ko Chang is a tropical marine national park. It consists of over 70% virgin rainforest. The island of Ko Chang is a very scenic island with white sandy coves and beaches, pristine rain forests and abundance of wildlife and marine life, coral reefs, high mountain peaks and , several scenic waterfalls.

When I visited Ko Chang for the first time it was an unknown destination. Nowadays the accommodation on the island ranges from simple beach huts and bungalows to luxury villas, suites and apartments. I reads that you can hire motorbikes, jeeps and cars to take you to any of the beaches along the coastal roads and that there are are plenty of restaurants, live music bars and nightclubs.

Fondest memory: My first visit to an unspoilt island in the 80s.
