How a TAT Social Media Initiative is Promoting Thailand Across the World
Koh Chang has a long and detailed history which dates back to the Ayutthaya era (1350-1767). Back then, the whole of Trat province, including Koh Chang, was known as Baan Bang Pra. However, it was not long before Koh Chang started to develop its own personality and therefore received its own name. During the reign of King Naresuan, the island was named Koh Chang because of its shape.
For foreign golfers holidaying in Pattaya, a game at the historic Siam Country Club is an absolute must do. The Club is home to two wonderful golf courses including the first privately owned course in the country which gives in a unique place in the history of golf in Thailand. The Siam Country Club is located just 20 minutes drive from Pattaya. There are two courses a few kilometres apart, both with their own excellent clubhouses and facilities.
Thailand is without doubt one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but at the same time the Thai government is aware of significant improvement opportunity for the future development of tourism in Thailand.
Thailand is increasingly becoming Asia’s leading destination for the rapidly growing market in global health tourism.

Keen amateur golfers wishing to experience the game outside the familiarity of their home countries will find that Thailand is the perfect destination for players of all standards. The country boast some of the finest courses in South-East Asia, a pleasant climate, excellent facilities, value for money and Thailand is a wonderful exotic holiday destination for the time you spend away from the course.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced that it has many initiatives to promote Thailand throughout 2011.
If you’ve had enough of lounging on the beach for one day and would like to get out and about to see some sights, one of the best day trips is to make the most of the surrounding islands.
Does the thought of being stuck indoors make you claustrophobic? Do you long to get outside and close to nature? If so, make sure you don’t miss out on a jungle trek while you’re on Koh Chang.
One of the most popular activities to enjoy while on Koh Chang is diving. Whether you are a novice or a pro, there are plenty of sites to keep you busy and you won’t be disappointed with the island’s offerings! The best time to take advantage of the myriad of diving opportunities is between October and April and the best dive sites are found on the western and southern tips of the island – in between Koh Chang and Koh Kood. It’s here that you will find an abundance of coral, anemones, reef fish and moray eels. For something even more special, head south for the chance to spot white-tip reef sharks.
Customer Story by Anna and Thomas Mueller
When we visited Koh Chang for the first time a few years ago, we both fell in love with this island at first sight. We were immediately fascinated by the very special Koh Chang atmosphere that caught us after stepping foot on the island, and of course by the breathtaking landscape and views. A couple more blissful visits convinced us that we would come back to this eden-like place again and again. And so, the idea to have our own piece of paradise in this life matured.
