Fresh Fruit

Hi all,

We will be visiting Koh Chang in February 2010.

We visited Thailand a few years ago in the month of February and bought plenty of mangosteens and rambutans.

Are these fruits available on Koh Chang or should we buy a bunch in Bangkok before we come to Koh Chang?

We love these fruits and don't want to miss out on them.

Thanks a bunch!

Lots of fruit is grown on koh Chang and elsewhere in this part of Thailand, but the main season is around May - July where you see loads of people selling all types of fruits by the truckload on the roadside around Chantaburi.

You'll be able to get some mangosteen and rambutan in February but the prices will be comparatively high as they'll have to come from the north of Thailand, they wont be grown locally. You'll see small stalls selling fresh fruit by the roadside or in the markets when you are here.

Don't worry about finding fruit there.

You'll find every fruit you know of, and a few more.

the only fruit/vegetable hard to find is avocado (!),

but it can be find at big supermarkets like Makro,Tesco Lotus,Big C etc.

So you don't have to by up stock before take the

bus to Koh Chang.

You'll be happy for all different fruits here.
