Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We will pick you up from your downtown Pattaya hotel (Condition apply for transfers outside Pattaya city centre; this includes any cruise port, Jomtien, Na-Jomtien, Chonburi, Si Racha, the Sattahip region as well as the airport)

Departure Time

7:30 AM
Receive a morning pickup from your Pattaya hotel and transfer north to the city of Si Racha, where you’ll board a ferry to Koh Si Chang island. The travel time to this scenic island (not to be confused with the similarly-named Koh Chang) is approximately one hour, or 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) by boat.

As soon as you set foot on this tropical island, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time to the era of Thai King Rama V. The former monarch once used its sandy shores as an island retreat, constructing a series of residential and ceremonial facilities for use by his family and guests. Stop by the “Chao Por Khao Yai” Buddha image for example, a religious icon that is well-known among both the Thai and Chinese visitors that still come to pay homage on public holidays and weekends.

Around midday, you’ll take a break to enjoy an included lunch on the island. Following your meal, head to Vimarnmek Palace. Originally built for the King’s “Lady of the Court,” today this former royal residence houses a variety of artifacts and antiquities. After visiting the palace, climb back aboard your ferry for the trip back to Si Racha, after which you’ll be transferred back to your hotel in Pattaya.
Stop At:  
Ko Si Chang Island
We will pick you up in the early morning from your downtown Pattaya hotel and head in the northern direction to Si Racha, one of the industrial regions of the Chonburi province. Located within easy reach of the shores of the Gulf of Thailand, our guide and driver for the day will head straight for the boat pier, offering regular ferry services to our destination for the day – Koh Si Chang (not to be confused with Koh Chang). The sailing distance from the commercially developed mainland to the scenic landscape of this historical pearl is a mere 12 kilometres, but the differences between both destinations look like worlds apart.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Chao Pho Khao Yai Shrine
Once arriving on the island, venturing over the island by motorcycle trishaw is the only way to get a feeling of what it was like during the reign of King Rama V (1868 – 1910). His love for the island has resulted in the construction of various residential buildings for himself and his children when seeking respite for his daily duties in serving and ruling Thailand. One of the most recognisable sites is the Chao Por Khao Yai; this Buddha image is famous among Thai and Chinese people who live on the island and Si Racha Province and still draws many visitors from other parts of the country.

Ko Si Chang
Before we head out for our lunch at a local restaurant, we visit the Vimarnmek Palace. This palace was initially constructed exclusively for the Lady of the Court in providing her with this exclusive retreat. Nowadays, the palace serves as a museum with artefacts and memorabilia of times gone by. Koh Si Chang may not have the best and softest sandy beaches in the region it still is a nice escape for an afternoon of sun, sand and sea, with little foreign tourism developments and plenty of local flavours to be found. We head back to the boat pier, catching the ferry back to the mainland and ending up back at Pattaya at around 5 pm.
Duration: 3 hours
