I enjoy visiting this place. It's good for lunch, and the views are interesting. It's not the cleanest place on the island, but still fun.

Bang Bao is the place where you can enjoy some locals restaurant. It looks like small fisherman village of Koh Chang. Also, you can spend money for souvenir here.

Already twice we visited this place down south of the island. There is a large pier with many many shops, restaurants, resorts and at the end there is a lighthouse. From this point they make excursions by boats, go diving and snorkeling.
