Through voluntary sinking of the U.S. warship HTMS Chang, Koh Chang could quickly become one of the top destinations for diving tourism in Thailand. Divers already fond of the site and the underwater life grew quickly.
The HTMS Chang is indeed the largest wreck lying in the seabed Thai. Its dimensions are impressive: 100 meters long and 15 high. The American ship built during World War II and assigned to the Thai Navy in 1961, was intentionally sunk on November 22 off Ko Chang.
The status of the island has risen several degrees in the field of international tourism in recent years, thanks to its fascinating natural beauty and also work to develop its tourism infrastructure.
More than 70% of the mountainous islands are still covered by virgin tropical forests, and there are many sandy beaches, including the vital trinity of a tropical island - white sand, palm trees and blue water temperate - where you can escape from your everyday life and leave your worries on the continent.
