Volker Klinkmueller has worked as a freelance correspondent and photographer since 1991. In addition to working closely with the Tourism Authority of Thailand in promoting the country abroad, his articles and photos have appeared in many German newspapers and magazines over the years. He is also one of the authors for the Stefan Loose series of travel guides ( A German language equivalent of Lonely Planet )
More importantly, for the purposes of this site, he has been visiting Koh Chang regularly for 20 years and is an old friend of some of the German resort owners who set up their businesses in the early days of tourism and who are still going strong today. ( You will see a few photos of Plaloma Resort here and one of James, the owner with considerably more hair than he has now.)
Volker has kindly allowed me to reprint some of his photos of Koh Chang here.
