As the second-largest island in the Koh Chang Archipelago, coming in at 111.3 square kilometers, Koh Kood is not just home to incredible palm tree-lined beaches and perfect snorkeling spots. Koh Kood boasts scenic inland waterfalls, coconut plantations, mountainous jungle-covered terrain, and the fishing village of Ao Salat located in the northeast. Of course, being a fairly remote island, public transport is non-existent here, but you can certainly rent a motorcycle or hire a songthaew to get around. That said, you will still be able to find some high-end accommodation options here, alongside some restaurants and bars in the main area, Klong Chao.
