Koh Chang has the wind. What a relief. You can never be sure that the rainy season is really, truly over until the wind shifts direction and begins to blow strongly from the north. And that began a few days ago. So now we can usher in the ‘cool’ weather of the Thai Winter Season. Of course cool is relative and you can expect daily high temperatures of around 30 degrees. It’s often breezy by day and can blow hard at night. Truly lovely weather. The year’s best sunsets seem to happen at this time of year as well. Day after day of splendour.
And also over the last week the island seems to have finally started to fill up. This tourist season seems to have begun a little slower than in previous years but now flights are busy and people are starting to arrive. Local business owners are smiling again, all is well.
We’re busy preparing our new guides for January issue (earlier online of course for our tech-savvy readers!). There are new issues of our Koh Chang Guide and Treasure Map as well as our Koh Mak Map. We took this photo at Thaidaho Vista Resort, one of our favourite spots on Koh Mak the other day. As usual we have some great new photography and features to celebrate another high season.
We’ve also been sampling some of the new places to eat and drink on Koh Chang so let us finish digesting these new guides and then we’ll tell you all about them.
