    Image Credit : Shark Attacks
    Haad Sairee, the longest and most popular Thailand beaches on Koh Tao, boasts a vast stretch of sand lined with bars, restaurants, resorts and dive centers. While the area around the beach is a major hub of activity, the beach itself doesn't get overcrowded - there's always a patch to spread your towel over. The bay can get quite busy with long tail transfers, so keep a keen ear out for boat engines while frolicking. Hawkers do walk the beach selling sarongs, tasty snacks, and fresh fruit but are not bothersome.

    For resort comforts, privacy without total isolation and convenient snorkeling, head north where the coastline gets rockier but the silence makes it worthwhile.

    Image Credit : Trent Strohm
    White Sand Beach is generally split into north and south, with the vast majority of the actual beach at the northern end and the southern section generally held to start at the point where the sand gives way to rocks and the cliffs.

    For those not seeking this or unsure as to whether the atmosphere 
    will prove too touristy for their tastes, it is probably best to look elsewhere on Koh Chang. 

    Activities
    :  Diving and snorkeling are very popular on the beach; you can go trekking in Koh Chang.

    Location: Koh Chang

    Getting There: 
     You can reach to the white sand beach after heading through Klong Son and over the steep hill.

    Haad Rin Nai is only a short walk to the party beach, so it's an ideal place to stay, within walking distance to all the action but far enough away for some peace and quiet. If you are looking for some calmness then this is one of the best Thailand beaches.

Chao Phraya River

Truly, the River of Kings ­ as King Rama I named it ­ is the lifeblood of Bangkok. And not just because of this rich history. Around 50,000 people still use its ferries to get to each day. Slow barges bearing cargo coast upstream. Kids still frolic in the russet - brown water. Wooden shacks, mottled by the elements, still lurch over the water.  

Soaring hotels and condominiums hem in solemn temples, churches and civic buildings that look 19th century European, while yards away the odd wooden sampan sells noodle soup or dried squid to hungry river workers. It is this juxtaposition of calm and chaotic, modern and traditional, religious and secular, ugly and sublime, foreign and indigenous that makes the Chao Phraya so evocative. There are many ferry trips that take you on a tour around the river.

Iron Fairies

Iron Fairies is a mystical bar that is outlined like an ironsmith's workshop: dim and broody, with fashioned iron staircases, uncovered pipes and broken down timber and block. Bottles pixie dust are stacked in lines, and all over you look, you could risk upon minimal iron dolls of the winged animals that give the bar its name. Open subsequent to 2010, Iron Fairies moved in 2013 (however just three entryways down the road) and extended its operation so now it is a labyrinth of staircases, mystery entryways and dim recesses. The previous premises were tiny to the point that it was a steady fight to get in or out, keeping in mind it is still a tight crush, however, no matter you are standing or sitting you will certainly be in awe with its stylistic theme.
