Bailan is the quiet little sister of Lonely beach. You can find there all kind of accomodations, from luxury beach-front resorts to low budget bungalows. The life style in Bailan is quite preserved, as it seems this area has been
spared by the big partying frenzy of Lonely beach — and yet you will find very nice places to chill out.
As in any other parts of the island, Bailan has good and less good places for eat and for stay. You will find there a lot of activities to spend good times. Although Bailan has some nice water beachfront spots, they are rather isolated and there is no white sand beach : this is the main reason why Bailan is not as developed as other parts of Koh Chang — and that’s why it’s a very nice spot to rent a house monthly and spend some quality relaxing time.
