Ko Kood

Koh Kood is the sixth largest island in Thailand and an island district in Trat province, located more than 300 km southeast of Bangkok. With a fairly large area of 129 km2 and 70% is covered with mountainous terrain, streams, waterfalls, verdant plains and thousands of coconut trees around the coast. All these pristine natural beauties create a unique attraction of Koh Kood Island.


Those looking for a serene island that hasn’t been “so crowded” may want to turn their attention to the north of the Gulf of Thailand, with Koh Chang, Koh Mak, and Koh Kood as raising stars on their list of places to visit. Like Koh Mak and less developed than Koh Chang, Koh Kood doesn’t own a bustle harbor with vehicle ferries, the roads are also almost deserted, so you can expect a quite beach with stunning scenery and crystal clear water, where you can comforatable enjoy sunbathing even in the high season.

Koh Kood is home to some most beautiful beaches in Thailand, especially Hat Khlong Chao beach - one of 10 most beautiful beaches in Thailand. Besides, you can visit a lot of pretty white sandy beaches such as Khlong Chao, Taphao, Khlong Hin, Phrao... The beautiful emerald Nam Tok Khlong Chao waterfall is another ideal swimming spot that you should visit.


Culinary is another highlight of Koh Kood. You can find many seafood dishes around the beach with reasonable price. The Khlong Chao area is the tourist centre of Kod Kod, with a wide range of accommodations, pe shops, restaurants, and a few bars.

To get to Koh Kood, you have to take a boat ride. From mainland, you can take a boat ride from Laem Sok to Ao Salad on the northeast coast in about 2 hours. You can also take a boat from the nearby islands such as Koh Chang or from any island near Koh Mak. The best time to visit Koh Kood is from December to the next March since this is the driest period in the year and the range of transportation to the island is also various.
