2488 Zong Zi Pad Pad Koh Chang

This restaurant provides a delicious and informative dining experience on Koh Chang. It is located in a super-chic modern building just outside of Chai Chet on the way to Klong Prao village.
The stylish design provides an excellent contrast to the cuisine since this is the only place on the island where you can sample traditional Koh Chang and South-Eastern Thai cooking. The dishes on their menu are carefully prepared using 70-year-old recipes and the result is a tasty insight into Thai traditional food. Since all of the dishes come from the local area all of the ingredients can be locally-sourced and therefore they are extremely fresh and flavourful

All in all, this is a rich and rewarding dining experience that everyone should try during their visit to Koh Chang.

Riverview Hostel

Riverview Hostel couldn’t be in a better location, right beside the Klong Plu River just at the entrance to the sea. The views from their waterfront bar/terrace and upstairs private double room are phenomenal.
All round, this is a modern and friendly hostel with mixed and female only dorms at very reasonable rates. It’s a great budget option in the central Klong Prao area of  Koh Chang and is a perfect base to begin your exploration of the island with all the help and advice that the owners and staff will be happy to provide you.
And for food you really should sample some of their authentic Spanish cuisine, you won’t be disappointed.

Nong Bua Seafood / Pajamas Hostel Koh Chang

A nice and modern combination of Thai restaurant and luxury hostel just a few metres from Klong Prao beach.


Thailand and particularly Bangkok has seen a rapid growth in modern luxury hostels in recent years. Pajamas is a great example of the concept done well. it may be a hostel but forget about the old youth hostel model – here you get a swimming pool, lots of communal space and aircon dorm rooms of varying size so you can book a room amongst four friends or stay in a larger dorm. And if you want to stick with convention and book a private double room they offer that as well.

KA-TI Culinary

ka-ti culinary koh chang logoKa-Ti Culinary is a Thai restaurant and cooking school in Klong Prao village on Koh Chang that enjoys a deserved reputation as one of the island’s very best places to eat. It is a popular choice for both visitors and locals – and if the locals eat there then you  know that you are on to a good thing.

Everything on the menu is fresh and home-made, including some excellent desserts and ice creams. They concentrate on making their Thai dishes to old family recipes and no corners are cut. Unlike many places all curry pastes are freshly made and you will definitely notice the difference.

The restaurant is in an attractive wooden building close to the centre of Klong Prao village and at the back there is a large specially designed kitchen and teaching area where the cooking classes are held.


Given the quality of their food and their attention to detail it is no surprise that they also offer Thai cooking classes. In their four hour class you will learn some of the science and the art of Thai food. They will teach you the essential herbs and vegetables used in Thai cooking and help you to see a see a different side to Thai culture.

The cooking class attempts to increase your knowledge of Thai food while you are learning actually by doing rather than watching. You will leave with a recipe book, a  full stomach and have a memorable holiday experience.

Iyara Seafood

by Dave in Eating & Drinking - Klong Prao Comments Off on Iyara Seafood

Iyara Seafood and Resort Koh Chang

Seafood restaurant in a picturesque setting on the lagoon with terrific views of the beach and the mountain.



Iyara Seafood must occupy one of the best positions for a restaurant on the whole island situated at the mouth a mangrove fringed river where it meets the sea. There are great views of beach, river, mountain – everything!
The restaurant is a wooden structure that juts out on two stories over the water.

After dinner you can take a free boat up the lagoon where, in season, you can see scores of fireflies clinging to the trees atthe side of teh water. It’s a great experience and worth visiting for that alone.

But fortunately their food is very good too. They have every kind of fresh seafood that you can think of, as well as terrestrial fare. All served thai-style. It’s the seafood place that we visit most – and we like to think we know about what’s good in these parts 😉


The owners of Iyara Seafood also operate a small resort in the heart of Klong Prao village directly opposite the temple on the main road. Rooms are set in a large garden area and have aircon, TV and hot shower. Prices are very reasonable and rooms can be booked by day, week or month.
