My bro and I are planning a trip to Koh Chang (we think!) for the first week of October. We've both been to other beaches/islands around Thailand and are trying to go somewhere new. Any advice about places to stay in Koh Chang. A lot of the accomodation I'm looking at is way out of my price range (I work in Thailand...). Basically looking for something decent but cheap. Also what about snorkelling on Koh Chang? Any advice would be more than welcome. Thanks!!!

For a semi-budget option I could recommend Northern Lights on Haad Kai Mook. The bungalows are much nicer than the superbudget options and the area is pleasant and laidback, though not too far from the busy beaches. The beach at Haad Kai Mook is not sandy, but there are many great snorkelling spots nearby, so it might suit you well. We paid 350 or 400 bahts for a fan bungalow this March, so I think you can get one cheaper than the price quoted here (600).
why koh chang-skip it. try koh mak f.e. island hut bungalows, basic but nice. the charming thai people, who run this place might charge you a 200 or 250 baht per night. the snorkel ,just off the beach, is not bad either.
