Koh Chang By Scooter. Part 6: Ao Sapporot Ferry Pier to Dan Mai

Koh Chang Motorcycle to Dan Mai

Koh Chang Motorcycle to Dan Mai

This, and subsequent videos take you down the east coast of Koh Chang from Ao Sapporot to the far southeast of Koh Chang.  To be honest the most interesting parts are those on the roads around Long Beach and Salakphet.  The ride down there is very pleasant but there’s nothing too exciting about the scenery.  The main thing you’ll notice is that as soon as you pass the ferry piers there’s hardly any traffic.  You’ll be able to easily count the number of vehicles you see.

This video takes you half way down the east coast from the main ferry pier, past  Centrepoint ferry which is the quieter of the two piers.  Close by is the small beach that’s home to Amber Sands, The Souk and Serenity Resort and from there the road meanders south towards Dan Mai.  I ended this video on the pier in Dan Mai village.

Most people skip Dan Mai and don’t take a detour into , what was once Koh Chang’s main settlement.  But it’s a worthwhile doing.  There are some great views from the old pier and also a small Chinese shrine.  Plus the village temple had a handful of 200 year old trees.  Klong Nonsi waterfall is located down a track behind the local government offices and there are a handful of small shops, restaurants and coffeeshops by the roadside where you can stop for a break.
