Trat and Koh Chang Activities and Top Things to do guide

FishingFishing is a relaxing way to spend your vacation in Trat and Ko Chang lying offshore is probably the best spot to partake in this leisure activity. It is advisable to bring your own fishing gear and tackle as there are no rental shops in the area. One can always buy local nets or hooks and lines at the fishing tackle shops you'll find on the mainland if you don't have anything with you though, as it is cheap enough not to break the bank.

Trekking is proving a popular recreational activity and there are a number of trekking companies operating in the area. This is a sure-fire way to keep trim and don't forget to take some bottled water with you.

Swimming is the only way to cool off other than the pool at your hotel and Trat is fortunate in having a number of Divingexcellent beaches on its doorstep that beg you to jump in and splash about or get into some training while you are here.

Diving A group of about 10 islands south of Ko Chang have coral reefs and are ideal for diving and fishing. Boats to the island can be hired from Ao Cho, Laem Sok Pier or Laem Ngop Pier that will take you to the islands of Ko Ngam,Ko Wai, Ko Laoya, Ko Kra and Ko Rang where the diving is good.
