4 Options to reach the island from Bangkok
The pristine island of Koh Kood boasts some of the most unspoiled beaches in the country and, as such, is well worth a visit. If you would like to see its breath-taking beauty for yourself but aren’t sure of how to make the journey, here are a variety of ways to reach the island from Bangkok.
There are 3 daily Bangkok Airways (PG) flights to Trat Airport (TDX) from Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK). From Trat you will need to take a taxi or a mini bus to a pier to catch the boat to Koh Kood. Trat is located 30km from Laem Ngob and Dan Khao Piers, and 60km from Laem Sork Pier.
If you are renting a car and want to get to Koh Kood under your own steam, follow these instructions. Take Motorway/Highway 7, which is a continuation of the capital’s Rama IX Road. Follow this until it meets Highway 344, which you should then join until it reaches The Klaeng Crossroads. From here you turn left onto Highway 3 and continue for 315km along this road until you reach Trat. From Trat you will have to take the boat to Koh Kood from a local pier.
