Koh Chang has a reputation as an island which welcomes budget travellers, and there are a few places where you can get your head down for the night for little more than the cost of a beer. However, exclusive resorts and hotels are popping up faster than you can say sawadee.
If back-to-basics is not exactly what you are looking for, then for between 500 and 1,000 baht a night you can find a place with its own bathroom and some creature comforts. As a rule, it’s wise to head for the quieter, less developed beaches if it’s budget to mid-priced accommodation that you are looking for.
