About the ride from Koh Kood to Trat

With no airport nearby, the only way to travel from Koh Kood to Trat on the mainland is by boat. Modern, high-speed ferries and speedboats leave from Ao Salat in the north of Koh Kood island several times a day. The ride takes between 40 and 90 minutes, depending on the boat.

Whether you’re returning after an island-hopping trip around the Koh Chang Islands, or you're visiting for the first time, Trat is a great place to spend a day or two. A former French colony, today, Trat is a multicultural town with a laid-back vibe, and many affordable places to stay. The wider province is very scenic, with white sand beaches, mangrove forests, coral reefs and Hat Chao Mai National Park on the doorstep.

You can’t fly from Koh Kood to Trat; traveling by boat is the only option. High-speed ferries, regular ferries and speedboats leave from the pretty fishing village of Ao Salat in the north of the island and arrive at Laem Sok Pier on the mainland, south of Trat town.  Bookaway offers a combination ticket which includes hotel pick up on Koh Kood, and hotel or airport drop off when you reach the mainland, saving on stress and taxis.

If you're moving on from Trat, you can fly to other destinations in Thailand from the small airport which is about 30 minutes from the town.
