Ko Phayam and little Ko Chang Andaman side

Ko Phayam and little Ko Chang Andaman side.

HELEN TURNER'S TRIP REPORT - MARCH 2012

Returned from short trip to Ko Chang and Ko Phayam. Stayed at Mr Gao, on Buffalo Bay, having pre-booked. Smart bungalow, 900b, with great double day bed on decked area; pristine bathroom etc.


Nice bungalow at Mr Gao.

Food great, but narrow bit of beach immediately in front; staff miserable bunch!
Mr Gao has a great restaurant purched just above the beach

Hired a motorbike which was a good way to see all round the island. Quite a few resorts springing up but also quieter places. Had massages nr Ao Yai and great food at JJ Seafood. Stayed for 3 nights & decided to go back to Ko Chang.

Just back from Little Ko Chang; Not a great start as no accommodation on main beach so ended up in Mini-mart, 200b for basic bungalow. Food and staff were great, but wanted to be near the beach, so moved after 2 nights to Cashew when a bungalow became free; 250b,quiet, well spaced out basic bungalows, but included bed bugs so moved on. Eventually found Contex bungalows, in the north west. Loved it; 250b, help yourself to beer/water and write food ordered down in the book. So relaxed..... and staff happy to let you in the kitchen to watch them cook and help with learning Thai.
Borrowed a boat and went fishing till the sunset.
