The island of elephants, Koh Chang, has beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, plus mountains full of vegetation. There are lots of things to do on the island and, in addition to all kinds of water sports, there are many outdoor activities. I recommend that you go hiking around some of the many routes around the island. There are routes for all tastes and levels, for example, those with a high level of fitness can climb to some of the highest areas on the island. They are not comparatively very high but they are quite difficult to walk because the paths are quite uneven. There are also some simpler but equally beautiful routes that lead to the two waterfalls on the island or other viewpoints from which you can admire breathtaking landscapes. There are signposts that signal the start of the routes. The other option to get to know the island is to ride an elephant. This activity is offered by all tour companies on the island and is also great fun.
