About Koh Sichang
From the moment that you step off the ferry, you can tell that something is different about this place. The facades of rows of handsome little homes dot the hillside in the distance. As you walk through the narrow streets, locals great you with a warm smile as they go about their daily chores in front of their humble kiosks. You walk down a road flanked by stately trees swaying in the wind and stumble onto the old summer residence of King Rama V, a complex of immaculate gardens and baronial residences. You continue exploring and notice that he sound of morsels of pork sizzling on a grill is clearly audible; there are few cars on the road to drown out the music of daily life. You notice that no one is in a hurry and everyone seems to know each other. This town seems snatched from a simpler time, the beach is free of business and open for leisure. The shops sell food and clothing made for locals, by locals. The streets are lined with homes and daily life goes on at a breezy, idyllic pace. This is Koh Sichang, a small island with immense charm, home to Somewhere Koh Sichang.
Getting to Koh Sichang
If you are coming from Bangkok, you may take a taxi straight to Koh Loi Pier, or drive your own car to one of our Cape, Kantary or Kameo properties in Sriracha (it will be well looked after) and continue on via our shuttle bus to Koh Loi Pier. The 100 km trip from Bangkok to the pier is very easy to arrange and will take approximately 1 hour and thirty minutes, along either the Bangkok-Chonburi Motorway or the Bangna-Trad Expressway. From Koh Loi Pier, catch the ferry to Koh Sichang. The ferry leaves every hour and should take approximately 45 minutes to reach the island. Once you reach the Koh Sichang pier, disembark and board our private tuk-tuk (also known as a samlor on Koh Sichang) that will then take you to Somewhere Koh Sichang.
