journeys end koh chang logoJourneys End

Journey’s End is a friendly English-run homestay and bar down on the shoreside in beautiful and peaceful Chek Bae down in the Southeastern corner of Koh Chang.
Very few people even make it to this part of the island and if you’re a get-away-from-it-all kind of person then you’ll be very happy that they don’t since you’ll have this beautiful bay almost to yourself.

There’s plenty to do here though. The owners have a boat which you can hop onto for snorkelling, fishing and island hopping. Or you can paddle around the bay on one of their kayaks.

The accommodation of offer is in comfy bungalows or garden tent hire is also available.

Watching the sunset from their bar is almost obligatory of course and they have a tasty menu so you definitely won’t go hungry.

This restaurant and guesthouse is situated over the water on the pier of Bang Bao village to the south of Koh Chang. It’s a lovely location and definitely worth a visit.

A nice touch, in a addition to their normal seating, are a couple of floor tables where you can sit Thai style with the added amusement of dangling your feet over the water below – without shoes of course!
