we're traveling to Southeast Asia in one week. We're planning on spending the Xmas on Ko Chang in Thailand. My question is if we should book the accomodation before or when we get there....considering that the Xmas is the bussiest time and things can get much more expensive.
Another question: where would be the best place to stay? Our budget is 30 USD per person per day.

I first visited Koh Chang June 2008 (low season). Revisited March 2009 and the hotel (budget) I stayed at was fully booked. Checked out a number of hotels along the White Sands strip and many were fully booked. Prices skyrocket outside of low season. Would I prebook accom. if visiting in December? I wouldn't leave home without booked accom. Google 'accommodation Koh Chang'. There are some dedicated Koh Chang websites that can help you decide. Sorry, I haven't retained the websites in my research info. I'm confident you'll enjoy your stay there. Safe travels.
