Koh Kood is considered by those who know it to be one of the last real paradises left in Asia. Nowhere near as built up as its neighbor, Koh Chang, Ko Kood sports some of Thailand's last empty white sand beaches with nary a development in sight. There are many upscale boutique lodging options here. and with no nightlife to speak of, activities are mainly limited to relaxing, visiting some of the island's waterfalls, or kayaking in the beautiful emerald water. The island caters primarily to Bangkok Thais on package tours, however in recent years there have been many more resorts springing up aimed at the foreign market. Things will invariably change here, but for now, Koh Kood remains a sleepy place and a lovely tropical holiday escapist paradise.
Ko Kood Island, Trat
- Beaches: "To get to Koh Kood, you need to get to Trat town first, done either by flying Bangkok Air or else taking a bus from the Ekkamai Bus Station in Bangkok. Once in Trat, one can arrange either a speed boat or rapid ferry out to the island, with most companies including free return transport out to the Laem Sok pier from Trat."
- Best for Beaches Because: For real empty beaches in paradise, Koh Kood is one of the few left standing.
