Welcome to Koh Kood island
Welcome to Koh Kood island


The Koh Kood Island is situated in the eastern part of Thailand and it is found near Koh Chang and Koh Mak. What is special about this island is the fact that those who settled here, the original people where from Cambodia as well as Thailand. They got there because they were looking for some kind of refuge after the French people were trying to get their hand on Padjantakiri during 1904. The thing about this island is the fact that it was inaccessible to people because of the political problems that Cambodia had. This problem has been solved in time and now the island can be visited by everyone.


What was great about this island is the fact that it offered people the possibility of earning their own living because they cultivated coconuts and also rubber and they were catching fish as well. This island has slowly become the core of Thailand because those who didn’t have where to work and didn’t have ways to survive came here and they started working on their own in order to afford their living. Nowadays the tourism is helping the locals gain more money and they are able to have a better life than before also.


The Koh Kood Island is great because it is a peaceful island and a very beautiful one. The sand is white, fine and clean and the water is crystal clear. Those who are looking for a vacation where they can lay in the sun and swim in the sea should most definitely choose to get to Koh Kood Island. They can get there if they are taking a boat and they can ask the locals to show them the island. They can explore it by foot or by car. The island has a lot of beaches that are worth a visit as well.


During the years the island has become more and more popular and that is because people have heard that it is like paradise. The fact that they can find there some accommodation as well has made it even more desirable. People tend to spend several days there because they have a lot of places to see and to explore and because they can relax and they can see one of the most beautiful sunsets while they rest on the beach. Also, it is a great place that it is worth a visit with the family and friends.
