Tiny travel guide on Lonely Beach [Koh Chang]

Koh Chang is Thailand’s second largest Island with about 5000 residents and means translated “Elephant Island” thanks to the shape of the island itself.

It is not as busy as Phuket or Koh Samui yet and therefore still a lovely destination for a more quiet holiday.
