The Very End

a sleepy town on stilts

A six hour bus ride, ferry and two cab rides from Bangkok, Bang Bao feels different. It’s not like any of Koh Chang’s other towns — there is no such thing as a decent cup of coffee or a late night bar. Instead, there is only a pier. Shops, homes, seafood, motor bikes, fruit stands, and children cover every inch.

 

Location: South east tip of Koh Chang, Thailand

Coordinates: 11°37’0″N, 102°33’0″E

Population: > 700

The sunrises, the sunsets, the space between; like stepping into a  still frame of un-relinquished serenity.
