Ko chang Cautions and Business Hours

Cautions Koh Chang is a very safe travel destination and there is very little petty crime.

Locals are, however, often inclined to get as much money out of visitors as possible and you’ll find that tourists are generally charged more than locals for basic services.
The main threat to your safety may be the traffic, particularly if riding a motorbike. Koh Chang is notorious for the number of road accident victims. You’ll also encounter young children riding motorbikes and hardly anyone wears a helmet. This in combination with many visitors’ inexperience of handling motorcycles, a carefree holiday attitude and inadequate protection makes for a dangerous mix. Diving can also pose dangers, although most certified diving schools and trip organisers adhere to international safety standards.
Electricity: 220V AC, all plugs are two-pronged.
