It isn’t often that I get time to go down to Koh Kood but as I was given a good deal on a room at Away Resort it was worth leaving the guesthouse behind on Koh Chang and heading down there for a couple of days of riding around on a scooter and taking a few photos.
It is a lovely island – as you will see from the pictures. But if you do stay there the main thing to remember is to choose your resort carefully, many are easily accessible by boat – as they have their own piers – but are a nightmare to get to by land, as they lie at the end of long dirt tracks. This makes getting out of the resort and to the main road pretty difficult even by scooter and when you are at the main road there is very little in the way of small restaurants or shops close by.
You may well find yourself eating in the resort or a neighbouring resort on the same beach far more often on Koh Kood than you would on Koh Mak or Koh Chang.
There is also no public transport, no ATMs, no tour agents offices, no tailors shops, no internet cafes ( aside from one cheap government place) and no souvenir shops. Which all makes for a very nice island experience if you are the type of visitor who either just wants to laze on a white sand beach all day or enjoys getting out and exploring by scooter, which I’d definitely recommend as there is very little traffic.
The photos are pretty random. Hover over the thumbnail for a brief description. Two sets here and two on the next page of Koh Kood pics
