Ban Salak Khok Koh Chang
Allure of Tranquility


Seeking island serenity on the eastern coast? The enchanting fishing village of Ban Salak Khok sits in a narrow strait, surrounded by lush mangroves, on Koh Chang, Trat. Here you can immerse yourself in the local fishing culture, meander through mangrove thickets, or row a traditional Ruea Mad boat reminiscent of a Venetian gondola. Ban Salak Khok may be an hour’s drive from resorts on the west of the island, but the journey is well worth the effort. Whether you arrange a trip through your hotel or independently, the best time to be here is in the morning, when you can enjoy the crisp fresh air and gentle sea breeze
