Koh Chang weather

Koh Chang has three seasons. November to February is the cool season and is also high season. March through to June is the hot season and July to October is the rainy season although this is a little unfair as it is perfectly possible to have many days without seeing a drop of rain. The locals call this period the ‘green season’ because of the lush shades of green. The many waterfalls on the island are working overtime and are worth a visit.
