About the ride from Bangkok to Koh Kood

For the 350km (217 mile) trip from Bangkok to Koh Kood (or as some people call it, Koh Kut), you need to buy a combined bus and ferry ticket. Though this is the only method of getting to Koh Kood from Bangkok, many different companies serve the route, leaving you with lots of options for making your journey.

A  combined bus and ferry journey is fantastic for getting swiftly and easily from Bangkok to Koh Kood without any stress or the need for various bookings.

While Bangkok has always been one of Thailand’s most popular destinations, Koh Kood is one of the country’s quieter getaways. It’s a perfect pick if you want a beachside break without some of the backpacker partying that’s so prevalent on some of Thailand’s more popular and well-established islands.

Traveling from Bangkok to Koh Kood is a great choice if you’re keen to escape the hustle and bustle of some of Thailand’s busier destinations. In a country of many busy towns and cities, Bangkok is the most hectic of them all, with a huge population, unbelievably busy roads and endless groups of travelers. 

With clear waters, soft sands and relatively few tourists, Koh Kood is a remarkably laid-back destination, full of beautiful waterfalls, serene shores and charming boat trips.

And by traveling directly to Koh Kood from Bangkok, you can get all the sweet relief of a quieter destination without the stress or hassle of multiple bookings.

 

 

What to see when traveling from Bangkok to Koh Kood

Your journey to Koh Kood from Bangkok is made up of two separate sections - a bus trip from Bangkok to the port province of Trat followed by a boat trip from Trat to the blissful beaches of Koh Kood.

The first stretch of your journey from Bangkok to Koh Kood is on a lengthy but comfortable bus trip, which will take you all the way from Bangkok right to Trat’s pier. The road you’ll ride on is well-built and well-maintained, so though it’s not the world’s most exciting journey, it’s certainly an enjoyable one.

Your bus will begin the journey by navigating the madcap streets and sights of Bangkok, as it somehow winds its way through perilous piles of people, scooters and street food stalls to escape the city’s crazy chaos.

Once this stretch is over, you’ll hit a highway, which will take you most of the way to Trat.

Though there’s nothing special about this road, the views are fairly interesting. You’ll see distant mountains, humble roadside homes and small pockets of forest and flora.

Before you know it, you’ll be in Laem Sok Pier, which is your rudimentary and charming gateway to Koh Kood. You’ll quickly and easily transfer from your bus to your ferry and embark upon the second stage of your journey. 

With distant lands, lapping waves and the promise of shoreline adventures to come, this ferry section is the most exciting and enjoyable part of your trip. You’ll pass mainland Thailand to your left, while views from the other side of the boat include vistas of Koh Chang, Ko Mak and various other small slices of island life.

You’ll soon arrive in Koh Kood, which some claim is Thailand’s most beautiful island. The moment you arrive, you’ll fall in love with the island’s laid-back, basic approach to living. Even the pier is beautiful, with its rickety wooden jetty backed by a bold backdrop of vivid trees and colorful buildings.
