Ko Kood island
Ultimate guide (August 2018)
is one of the most beautiful islands, - not in Thailand only, but also in the whole world. The beaches
are with white sand and palms hanging over the water. The island has no many tourists and no nightlife. This leads to a surprising effect: some people reported that being a week on Koh Kood they spent less money in comparison to one day in Pattaya. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.

Koh Kood have not many hotels, but you will find a room almost everywhere. Most of the hotels are very cheap and quite basic. But there are also some luxury resorts like Soneva Kiri
with room rates starting from $1000 per night. Find hotels in Ko Kood
How to get there 
Fly to Bangkok international airport (BKK)
. Next get to Trat
- by the taxi, or by bus, or by plane. Next take a ferry to the Koh-Kut island. There are direct ferry services from Trat, as well as connecting routes via Ko-Chang and/or Koh-Mak.
But if you stay at the Soneva Kiri
, you may also take a direct flight from Bangkok. Once get to the International airport you will be immediately loaded to a small hotel's plane, which will reach the small Ko Mai Si
island located near the hotel. The flight will take 1.5 hours per way. Find flights to Ko Kood
When to go 
The best time for a beach holiday in the Ko Kut island of Thailand is a dry season from November to March. It rains heavily in the summer, so ferries don't go to the island, and most of the hotels are closed.

Any comments or ideas are also appreciated:
In Koh Kood island, the best beach for me was Ao Phrao. But to be honest, I haven't been to Soneva Kiri.
The best thing about Ko Kood is that it has great tropical beaches (comparable to those in Maldives), but not overcrowded - unlike all other Thai islands with good beaches. The main reason for it is that Ko Kood has no night life (except for bar at Klong Chao), and transportation is complicated.
