There are many beaches and resorts , mostly place along Aow Yai beach on the west . The resorts are well into the vegetation behind the beaches and hardly see them from the boat. In the forest wild animals abound, especially wild boars. It takes only one hour to get to Koh Chang from Ranong . The long tail boat ride on the border line between Thailand and Myanmar among many small islands: Myanmar on the right, Thailand on the left.

At the northern , you can see boats of sea Gipsies , a short dark people , mostly living on boats and moving from island to island. No electric power islands, telephone and mobile phones almost in every resort.

Thailand, which is situated on the eastern coast near Rayong, in the Gulf of Thailand.

This is Koh Chang Island - the Elephant Island - at the west coast of Thailand, close by Ranong, in the Andaman Sea. Koh Chang is to be reached within a one hour boat trip from Ranong at the Ranong Islands Pier, which is situated at the end of Sapaan Plaa Road.

Kho Khot Kra or Kra Isthmus The Kra Isthmus is the Malay Peninsula’s narrowest point, spanning a mere 44 kilometres from the Gulf of Thailand on the east coast to the Andaman Sea on the west coast. The Kra Isthmus provides an excellent vantage point from which to see the Kra Buri River forming a natural boundary between Thailand and Myanmar.

Tham Phra Khayang  Despite its small scale, this cave is related to a legend of the establishment of the district. Some 40 metres deep inside, a staircase leads upward and further outside the cave to where some rare herbs are believed to have been grown.
