North of Haad Sai Khao One of the most selfied places on Ko Chang has to be a viewpoint located off the main road just north of Haad Sai Khao on the way to Khlong Son—you might have trouble finding a place to park your bike at sunset.

Kai Bae Viewpoint Situated just south of Kai Bae village on the way down to Lonely Beach, this popular viewpoint comes complete with a visitor centre and plenty of parking. The vista from high above the sea covers a pair of bushy islets which add that extra something to those holiday sunset pics.
