    We will be in Koh Chang next April so this is a great post! There’s nothing more relaxing than a boat cruise, I love stopping at different places, having a bit of a swim or snorkel then drying off in the glorious sun, and if you get a chance to also watch it set?? Awesome!! … can you tell I was there with you mentally throughout this post! Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to go and experience it for myself! 🙂

      Thanks Angie, it was a great day and exactly what I needed. I think I expected there to be more snorkelling but by the end of it I realised that it was perfect – I clearly didn’t know what I wanted!

    Ohhh! that beach of Koh Wai looks perfect! I got stabbed by a sea urchin once, so always wary of those things now! Me and Phil love boat trips like this, we’re not really sun worshippers, so having gentle activities like snorkelling is perfect. Beer and fruit this is our idea of chilling out!

      I am not the best in the water and I felt like I was going to step on an urchin at some point. Heard some horror stories so was keen not to get too close! It was a great trip!

      Thanks Lisa, while tourism has boomed here in recent years, it’s nowhere near as bad as the more well-known Thai islands. Which makes Koh Chang Archipelago such a fantastic place for a getaway!

    Wow the Koh Chang Day Cruise looks like a party cruise with loads of fun. Great beaches like Koh Wai & Koh Mak on the itinerary look amazing. Lunch with snorkeling looks like a fun day. Thank you for sharing this cruise. I pinned it for later and would love to do this the next time I’m in Thailand. 🙂

      Thanks Stephanie! I definitely recommend it, it’s great value for money and a fantastic way to spend a day. I’m usually not one for relaxing but even I loved this!

    Wow, idyllic doesn’t even do justice for that photo of Koh Wai. You really can’t go wrong cruising round any of Thailand or Cambodia’s islands I reckon. I’d actually never heard of these islands but certainly intrigued now. Good one Lex.

      David, most people I’ve spoken to haven’t either! Which is what attracted me to Koh Chang. Apparently about 10 years ago, parts of the island didn’t even have electricity! It’s a bit more touristy now but doesn’t feel overrun with people as some of the other islands in Thailand are.

    I’d love to dive in Koh Mak, too. It looks stunningly beautiful! Great pictures – good work!

      Thanks Marcelle – the area is so stunning it would be hard to take a had picture! Yes, agreed – I would love to come back and do some diving there!

    Looks like a great place to visit. Never been to Koh Chang but it brings back memories of similar boat trip I did in Thailand a few years back. Phu Quoc is the next island on my list to visit.

      Barry, that’s also very much on my list. I want to go back to Vietnam and do it properly!

    Love the photos – particularly the dock at Koh Mak. Gorgeous! Snorkeling is one of our favorite activities, so we’d be all over this trip! Thanks for sharing, Lexx!

    few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show
    the same results.
