Island Wai, Koh Wai (Ko Wai)

 Download map of Koh Wai

Koh Wai - a small island next to Ko Chang, the complete lack of civilization, with the exception of bungalows and a restaurant. Very beautiful water - azure blue, white sand with leaves - they are not cleaned here. On the notion of Thailand - it is pure.

Pretty and primitive, Ko Wai sits about 6kms south of the bottom tip of Ko Chang. White sandy beaches, few people and abundant sealife make the island a favourite hideaway for some travellers fleeing the screaming motorbikes and blaring all-night beats of the larger islands nearby.

There are only four bungalow operations on the island -- all on the north side of Ko Wai. It's from this coast that there are terrific views over nearby island.

If you can, try to decide where to stay before you arrive -- just so that the captain can drop you off at the nearest pier. If you can't decide, don't fret -- Ko Wai is a small place and all of the bungalows can be accessed on foot via a rough patch that runs along the island's northern coastline.

Bungalow operations run on power generators, and only turn the power on in the huts from 18:00 to 23:00 nightly. Some of the bungalows will rent out gas lamps if you want to stay up later.

If you are out late whooping it up, don't forget to take a torch as the paths between bungalows are quite rocky and there is just about nothing in the way of lighting.

Also, keep in mind that Ko Wai is a very small place. There are no 7-elevens, so stock up on the essentials before you leave.

Lastly, while the island may be small, it is home to some of the biggest and nastiest mosquitoes in the region, so make sure you pack some strong repellent or your bee-keeping costume.
