When we were in Koh Chang we decided that we were craving movement and exploration. So, Matt found Bang Bao Pier. The next day, we were heading that way. We started off walking, but as I mentioned in my previous Koh Chang post, the roads here are insane with zero shoulder and just drop-offs. So about halfway there, we jumped in the back of a truck and rode the rest of the way.
Bang Bao Pier is a nice little pier lined with shops, restaurants and amazing views! We loved looking in all the different booths at the trinkets and wandering down tiny boardwalk paths that led to some of the most quaint buildings I’ve ever seen. At the end of the boardwalk is a gorgeous white-washed lighthouse. Even though all we did was wander around for a couple of hours we still seriously loved this stop.
Seriously, Bang Bao Pier is amazing. It’s like turquoise overload!
Among many other trinkets and things were rows of wind chimes made up of seashells.
Small boardwalks led back to restaurants + guesthouses. It was so quaint.
Of course, boats of all shapes and sizes dock at the pier and just off of it.
Left: The Pier was flooded at one point and boards were missing. This was definitely unique for me. However, it was just business as usual for locals + tourists. // Right: The gorgeous lighthouse at the end of Bang Bao Pier.
Like I said, our trip down to Bang Bao Pier was very short and sweet, but it was my very favorite part of our trip to Koh Chang. It was fun to explore and discover the quaintness of this area.
