Koh Chaang, Thailand.

Canon EOS 70D with Tamron 18-270mm lens @ 39mm f4.5 1/2500s ISO 500 RAW file.

Koh Chang ( เกาะช้าง) is an amphoe (district) in Trat Province, Thailand. It is on the Gulf of Thailand’s eastern seaboard, 310 km from Bangkok, near the border with Cambodia.

It is the country’s second largest island, after Phuket, and the largest island in the Mu Koh Chang National Park archipelago.

The name means “Elephant Island”, and comes from its elephant-shaped headland. Despite the presence of elephants on the island, they are not indigenous. At present, there are nine villages on the island.

Prior to World War II, Koh Chang was little known. During this period, the few families there made a living growing coconuts and fruit.[citation needed]

During World War II, when Thailand was occupied by Japanese forces, Koh Chang was the scene of the 1941 Battle of Koh Chang between the Royal Thai Navy and a Vichy French naval squadron, in which the French won a decisive victory.

Koh Chang is home to populations of the stump-tailed macaque, the small Indian civet, the small Asian mongoose, 61 bird species, and a number of snakes and deer.

The Koh Chang frog (Limnonectes kohchangae) was originally thought to be an endemic species, but has also been found on the mainland.
