Some words of warning - Take great care on the roads on Koh Chang. Not only is there an extreme disregard for traffic regulations that leads to unexpected and dangerous behaviour on the roads but during the rainy season bike riders often come to grief when damp roads become very slippery.
There are also some very steep hills in some sections of Koh Chang. Particularly bad stretches of road are located between Klong Son and White Sand Beach and also between Kai Bae and Lonely Beach. The Road on Koh Chang has numerous hairpin turns, some high up on the cliffs where there is no room for mistakes.
It's probably better if you're an inexperienced rider to forget the bike and go for the safety of a car or jeep or catch one of the many Songthaew taxis. You can also book one of our organised
day trips to see Koh Chang. We promise you will get to see all everything there is to see with out the hassle of driving on unfamiliar roads.
Safety Helmets - The wearing of a safety helmet is compulsory when riding a motorcycle in Thailand but this rule is often ignored on Koh Chang. Be forewarned, if you are stopped by the police for not wearing a helmet you will receive an on the spot fine. Helmets should be provided at the time of renting a motorcycle. Please wear it! It could save your life.
