The Koh Kood Experience

It's a good time to visit Koh Kood now, no need to worry about an influx of tourists. Stay on the west side of the island, where most of the resorts are anyway.

I recall seeing some very modest bungalows near beaches but I don't recall the names.

I have never considered anything in the Gulf of Thailand to be eastern Thailand or part of Issan.

I always though of it as southern Thailand.

Am I incorrect?

Great photos and information, thank you! Last little undeveloped island in Thailand now. Let's see in 10 years ...

When I came from Singapore Christmas 1968, PhiPhi Island was still pristine. Now it's overrun by tourists, masses of tourists every day. Digital age made that possible.

That's 48 years ago! A lifetime. Of course its changed! I was in Koh Samet in 1908. It was pristine back then. Now its ruined. Digital age made it possible. We should all burn our technology and go to live in the jungle...

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'

On the other hand luckily the higher prices will keep most people like you away anyway.

Maybe, and I mean just possibly, that is an unpleasant comment. I do find it difficult to take my holidays there, kind of expensive for me but I manage it. I'm not ashamed to admit and I don't see why you find it necessary to insult the person that wrote that. Do tell us please, that you never go to hotels that cost less than ฿6000.- a night.

Thanks for posting, just found the topic now.

Been to Koh Chang 2 times and loved it there, Koh Kood is something for the bucket list but I will likely be bored after 2-3 days as already mentioned, I am not a beach person, well I like the beaches but can't lay there all day long.

Lonely Planet books made Koh Samet popular, long before the digital age, i first went in 1987 on their recommendation and it was beautiful then B350 a night which included 3 meals a day at Sametville

Still a nice quiet resort at the end of the island, door to door from Pattaya about 4 hours travelling
