The Koh Kood Experience

Recommended Posts

Enjoyed your guide as we contemplated going at Xmas but ended up in Ko Chang because 4 of us and wanted to use our own pickup,not so keen on motorcycles. It's on our list for another time but I'm a keen snorkeller (qualified diver too) . Is there any decent shore based snorkelling from the beach. We had to go on an all day boat trip from Ko Chang,which was really good,to get that .so the only reason to chose Ko khood over Ko Chang would be if this aspect was much better.

Thanks for sharing, and great pics. I intendeded to spend 2 weeks in April on Koh Chang, but now will probably break that half-way thru with a 3-day trip to Koh Kood.

Sorry, I can't answer your questions about parking or snorkeling, although I know a few dive companies operate there.

There's a boat taxi service from Koh Chang, leaving daily from Bang Bao, but only available during high season. I believe it starts mid-October. I always go low season for the cheapest rates and low tourist counts, although it rains a lot during low season. For island hopping between Koh Chang, Koh Mak, and Koh Kood, I returned to the mainland each time. Each segment between islands cost about 600 baht, similar to the price of a boat taxi, but took a few hours more. Alternately, it's possible to hire a boat at Bang Bao, for traveling between Koh Chang and either Koh Mak or Koh Kood, if you want to spend the money.

Thanks for the write up.

I went here with my family a few years back. I stayed at the beach resort too and absolutely loved it. It really is the most idyllic place I've been to in Thailand.

The same boring place that it used to be and where someone must be stupid to drive 5 or 6 hours, when you can actually arrive at better place after 1 hour flight....

not so special taking into account the hassle it takes to get there.... Much nicer sand on Koh Larn with clean water and just 30 Baht to get there :-)

anyway, great report, thanks for sharing :)

We went there 7 years ago for our honeymoon ..... ended up staying for 3 weeks. Perfect place for people in love, or people looking for solitude and nature.

Sad to see that it has gotten so much busier already though. At the time we were there we hardly saw any other visitors, no restaurants to speak of.

Some nice food could be had in the fishing village next to the OP's resort though.

It's too bad that all the big mouths have to share where the nice little gems are. One of the best parts is being away from people when going to an island.

It seems like every person has a blog and must share their wisdom with the world. And for what? So people will give you 'likes'
