Located in the Ko Chang Archipelago, Trat province, Eastern Thailand, in the gulf of Siam, Ko Wai has a decidedly unique shape. The Island is 3 km long and 1 km wide, at its widest point, but don’t let that get you down, because its shape is what sets it apart from the many tourist destinations in Thailand. This should be kept in mind when planning for your vacations as the Island provides for certain experiences that are specialised to it naturally. The island offers a diverse terrain for visitors and tourists to choose from.
In Ko Wai, you will find in the Eastern part of the island, beaches, and coves. The clear waters and white sands beckon all sorts of tourists; those who’d prefer a quite barefoot walk on the beach on a nice and quiet evening to those who are more inclined to more adventurous stuff like diving and snorkelling.
The Western part of the island, covered in thick foliage and forests, serves as nesting grounds for many a species of birds and a natural habitat to several kinds of animals. This part of the island offers rugged and hilly trekking for those who want to test out their nerves and endurance. Although difficult to encompass, the Western end offers explorers and travellers the opportunity to see the natural surroundings of the island, in their full glory.
It is also worth noting that the island is a part of the Muko Chang National park and a protected area, which goes without saying that the island has so far received minimal damage environmentally.
