Ao Yai North on Ko Chang (Ranong)

Destination: KoChang

The "other" Ko Chang is different -- peaceful and laid back

Total Page Views for KoChang: 20,752 - Views this week: 20,752

Most resorts are located on this 3 km bay. The northern part consists of a wide sandy beach, followed by rocks and several bays. A large temple area is situated in the center of Ao Yai, near the river. From here, a small concrete path leads to the village (1 km). Ao Yai Beach is more lively and some resorts offer a little bit more comfort and even beach chairs. Parties are sometimes held in the evenings. At certain times there can be sand flies on the beach.
