    Ko Kud (Koh Kut)... anyone been there?

    Me and the girlfriend want to escape Pattaya for a week next month and we were thinking about Ko Chang. Then someone mentioned Ko Kud (or Koot), off to the southeast, nearer Cambodia. Has anyone been there, checked out any of the places to stay yet?

    20 years ago, I had an idyllic week on Ko Samet so I'm looking for something with a similar lack of crowds and tourist tat. Decent, basic, clean accommodation, fan or air and a nearby seafood restaurant with coffee in the morning and beer in the evening.

    Thanks is advance!

    You'll find that there, although it's mostly coconut farms, and few large beaches.

    A few years back Ms. B and I were looking at the magazine "Trips" (?) and it had a wonderful pictorial on Koh Kood. It looked luscious and we resolved to go. Never made it. So, if you do go I hope you'll put together a nice trip report with lots of photos.

    Let us know if you go. I've been thinking about heading to one of those islands. Looked on the net but seem very expensive. I'd heard of camp grounds somewhere on the beach which would suit. Use to love camping in tents as a kid and the missis has never done it.

    This is not an island but on the way down to the border there are a number of very isolated beaches, one of which is Had Ban Cheun...very nice and has places where you can stay...

    I've been to Koh Mak. Small, quiet. Lots of tall coconut trees.

    Love it. Couldn't get the wife back to KoChang! It is so peaceful. You have entire stretches of beach to yourself. Unlike Ko Maak and Ko Chang, the water is clear. We liked Ngam Klo resort but the Analay nearby is much more upscale at 2/3 times the cost. See travelfish.org where I posted my review.

    Now, that does look appealing!

    I have a few good pics but never looked into how to post. I am no computer nerd. I know how to turn it on and off.

    Koh Kood

    Wife and I spent a few days on Koh Kood about a year ago. Loved it! Quiet.
    No crowds.
    However, for those who like the entertainment of strolling from store to store - not going to happen. If you want to have lunch or dinner at a different restaurant each day - not going to happen.

    We explored several beaches and didn't see another person. Had a great time watching a monkey harvest coconuts. Rented a scooter and explored our area of the island; usually without meeting another scooter or person.

    The resort you stay at may not have every little thing you need, until they make the next supply run to Trat. For example, if they happen to run out of Malee Orange Juice, they probably won't have any for a few days.
