Fishing & Boating

Leisure trips can be arranged at most resorts, beaches, fishing villages and from Laem Ngob. Popular activities are snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing. There are establishments along the White Sand Beach, Klong Prao, Kai Bae and Bang Bao that organise boat trips in groups. You can register to join them. Fishing is a relaxing way to spend your vacation in Trat and Koh 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 youíll find on the mainland if you donít have anything with you though, as it is cheap enough not to break the bank.

Fishing & Boating

Hiking on Koh Chang

The main road west of Koh Chang from Klong Son to Kai Bae is a popular route. The Kai Bae to Bang Bao hike is a challenging experience. Passing through some coconut groves and rubber smallholdings the terrain is steep. Shorter hikes to the waterfalls from their main entrances are gaining popularity. There are footpaths to the waterfalls.

Thai Cooking Courses

Thai cooking as now enjoyed all over the world is a blend of Asian and European influences adopted through centuries of trade and diplomatic exchanges. Thais have traditionally lived close to the land and the waters, and original Thai cooking reflected that. Main ingredients were rice, fish, vegetable and herbs. Very little meat was used, and traditionally beef or buffalo meat was eschewed since the animals were the mainstays of farm life.

Thai Massage & Spa Therapy

In Asia, spa has evolved into a concept focussing on the spiritual and natural, drawing from traditions of meditation, respect for nature and the desire to achieve physical and mental well being, the key to maintaining health and beauty. In Thailand, the concept of spa blends with the ancient traditions of natural healing through herbal baths, massage, meditation, and the continued pursuit of inner and outer beauty. Before the arrival of modern medicine in Thailand, the temple was the the centre of learning for all disciplines, including medicine. Monks therefore played the role of doctor and pharmacist, prescribing herbal remedies, steam compresses, massages and other such treatments for the relief of various ailments.

Spa therapy is another choice to feel relaxed and rid away your aching. Most up-scale hotels and resorts offer their unique therapeutic session.
