Koh Kood Travel Information

The oldest village in Koh Kood is the Klong Mad Village where the people are of Thai and Cambodian origins. These early dwellers had migrated from neighboring Koh Kong since the turn of the 20th century. Koh Kood has a mountainous terrain in the central region. About 70% of Koh Kood are covered by tropical rainforest. Development is scarce and mostly at coastal areas. Koh Kood boasts of scenic beauties, crystals clear sea, pristine beaches, breathtaking waterfalls and a very pure nature environment.

Boats from the piers in Laem Ngob and the Dan Kao pier on the mainland take about 4 to 5 hours to reach Koh Kood. Speedboats takes slightly over an hour. The resorts which cater to the higher priced market include this trip in their packages. There are several resorts, most of them are on the west coast. Koh Kood is little known to foreigners. Most of the visitors are Thais who find it a paradise. Most resorts have, a minimum requirement on number of guests per package, usually 10. However, if you do not have your own group you can join the others to meet the minimum required.

The west coast is lined with a series of pristine beaches, sparkling clear sea, captivating views and a great place to catch the magnificent sunset. Most of the best known beaches are along the bays which include the Ao Pak Waeng, Ao Klong Ta Tin, Ao Klong Yai Kee, Ao Ta Pow, Ao Klong Chao, Ao Klong Hin and Ao Prao. Noted fishing villages include the Ban Klong Mad and Laem Hin Dan.

The east coast is equally beautiful with fascinating views of the glorious sunrise.
The prime areas include Ao Sapparos, Ao Klong Kwaen, Ao Yai Kerd, Ao Hin Yai and Ao Chak. Ao Salad and Ao Yai are the major fishing villages here. The Khao Paenthee is the highest hill and has just been recently discovered as a superb viewpoint for the sparkling island-dotted seas.

Two of the most beautiful islands closest to the shores of Koh Kood are Koh Mai Si Lek and Koh Raet. Both are small islands of coconut trees, fine beaches, healthy corals and excellent sunset viewpoints.

MOO KOH MAK

Lying between Koh Chang and Koh Kood, about 40 kms. from the mainland is a group of 9 islands called the Moo Koh Mak. Only 4 of these islands, including Koh Mak, Koh Kradad, Koh Kham and Koh Rayang Nok are occupied. Koh Mak, with an area of only 16 square kilometers and a 27 kms coastline, is the third largest island of the Marine Park. It has a flat terrain with plenty of coconut and rubber plantations. The main attractions are the long beaches and clear seawaters.

There are only a few hundred people living here, most of them related. There are about 10 resorts mostly situated at the northwest or southwest of the island. Almost all the resorts are sold on full board packages with sightseeing trips and transportation.
