Rural living on Koh Chang (Noi)? Too rural!!

I was offered a basic wooden house to rent long-term at 15,000 baht a month.

Crikey! You could probably have one built for not much more than that.

 

I do like the cat though.

 Visited Little Koh Chang couple years ago and as the OP reports, it's perfect for the aging hippie who wants to smoke the Wayout Woodbines. 

Very little internet on the island.

Aren't the beaches a little muddy being so close to the estuary of the Kraburi River?

right next to Koh Chang you will find Koh Payham,

larger and a bit less rural

 

prices are kinda inflated on those two islands

hotel/guesthouse prices are ok though

Discovering Thailand (and maybe soon understanding?) after 20 years around...

Discovering Thailand (and maybe soon understanding?) after 20 years around...

 

Do you mean you or me?  If me, then I've lived in many rural areas of Thailand (Nong Khai, Isaan, north Phuket, Phang Nga etc etc), as well as several years in rural Burma, and am very used to the remoteness of some areas.  But this time I'm looking for somewhere that is rural but still has the basic modern amenities, such as a mini-mart and local clinic.  Electricity would also be nice, as would the opportunity to drive my car.  Can't achieve that on Koh Chang.
