Ko Kood

A small province at the eastern-most frontier bordering on Cambodia with the Khao Banthat mountain range forming a natural demarcation, Trat is a resort town with over fifty large and small off-shore islands, long white sandy beaches and unspoiled coral ranges. It is also a major fruit-growing and fishing area.

About 315 kilometres from Bangkok and covering an area of 2,819 square kilometres, the province is administratively divided into the districts of Meuang, Khao Saming, Laem Ngop, Khlong Yai and Bo Rai, and the sub-districts of Ko Chang and Ko Kood.
Ko Kood is located in the southernmost point in Trat territorial waters. A speedboat transport visitors to the island within one hour. The inhabitants grow rubber, coconut and other fruit-yielding plants, while others are fishermen. With scenic beaches shaded by rows of pines and coconut trees mostly located on the western shores, it is also blessed with rich mangroves.

Waterfall at Ko Kood

Take about 15 minutes from the Ko Kood cabana resort by car to go to this water fall. Really cool and lots of fun, You may swim or jump from the rope hanging from the tree.

Ko Kood Cabana

In the evening, I enjoyed the golden sky. At night I came out at the pier with a torch and a star map and enjoyed searching stars.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Peaceful
  • In a nutshell:I will come back to Ko Kood again.

    a few years ago we passed the Trat province on the way to Ko Chang, but we have so far not been to Ko Kood; seems to be worth a visit one day; thanx for sharing your experience;
