There's so much to see on Ko Sichang that we're still discovering new attractions after twenty years of visits and five years of living here.

There's hardly a corner of the island where you won't find something worth looking at. Below we list the most popular targets, plus a couple that are often overlooked, but shouldn't be. Samlors will take you to most of these on the standard tour of the island. Make sure to allow plenty of time--just tell the driver how long you want to wait, and it's her/his call whether to wait, or go off and come back...

Cliff in quarry at Thaa Yai Tim

Night-time vendor, Thaa Bon market

Along the road down to the Thaa Laang pier and the waterfront just south of it is the oldest settled area of the island, where tiny lanes will lead you past Chinese shrines, hideaway hotels, fishermen's modest houses and boats that seem to have made their way into impossible places. If you can't turn a motorcycle around in a space the size of your hat, walk. The lanes are much too narrow for samlors, and in places to steep for all but the most muscular bicyclists.
