raveller described Ko Chang (the small one, near Ranong) as a kind of paradise, with beautiful sunsets, and beautiful sunrises (with a lot of natural noises).
He says there is no electricity there, and there are groups of stray dogs which do not attack people.

Is this island worth to be visited, having in mind that I will also visit Ko Tao, Ko Samui, Krabi and the Chicken island (Ko Gai), and Ko Larn (near Pattaya)?

What is the timetable of the boats from Ranong (in or outside the town) to the island and back?
Is it possible to buy bottles of drinking water there?

I suppose it's possible to find a free bungalow there upon arrival.
