Besides Koh Chang as a main star of the Trat archipelago, several smaller islands surrounding it are also worth visiting. Go beyond Koh Chang and explore unspoiled landscapes of the peaceful islands of Koh Mak, Koh Kood and Koh Laoya. These islands boast world-class shallow-water coral reefs – considered one of the most preserved and beautiful in the world. Enjoy a wide variety of great activities like diving, snorkeling, kayaking, canoeing, football, volleyball, biking and even singing karaoke! (available in some resorts).
Since most of these islands are privately owned, please note that a small fee may apply when you get on them. Also, full-board packages of one-night and two-night are usually on offer from resorts like Away Resort, Captain Hook, Bai Kood Shambala Resort (on Koh Kood), Baan Koh Mak, Koh Mak Resort, Makathanee Resort (on Koh Mak) and Laoya Resort on Koh Laoya. Not only these packages are cheaper, they’re much more convenient since everything is included and paid for (from boat transfer to meals). The Trat province itself also features fine attractions like beaches, mangroves, waterfalls, fishing villages, houses on stilts as well as wonderful markets selling some of the freshest seafood caught straight off the sea!
