Traveling from Bangkok to Koh Kood by different modes of transport.

Koh Kood is one of the favorite places of tourists visiting the islands in Thailand, it is the 4th largest island in Thailand. This island also has a slightly calmer atmosphere than some very visited other islands in Thailand, such as Koh Samui or Koh Phi Phi. Koh Kood is located approximately 40 km from Cambodia, so those traveling to, for example, Cambodia can use this place as a transfer point.

On the other hand, the nearest airport is Trat Airport in the town of the same name, which is the gateway to Koh Kood and from where speedboats or ferries depart. There are also direct flights between Trat and Bangkok, but the flight schedule is limited and flights can sometimes be more expensive.
