The largest and most developed of the 52-island archipelago that became Mu Koh Chang National Park in 1982 is called Koh Chang, or Elephant Island. Most of Koh Chang is mountainous, and there are only a few small beaches. The 30-km-long (18-mile-long) island has only nine villages, a few accessible only by boat. But this little paradise has been the focus of rapid development in the past few years, and the number of resorts is increasing exponentially.
