Koh Kood Trat
Koh Kood is an island at the farthest east of Thailand, just before entering Cambodia water territory. It is the second largest island after Koh Chang, with two minor islands named Koh Rad and Koh Mai See Lek.

In old days, Koh Kood used to be only a small village under Koh Mak. Until in 1990, it was elevated to be a sub-district with eight villages. Nowadays, Koh Kood has a sub-district administrative office, hospital, health center, police station, school, post office, electricity plant, and four temples.

Since this island is pretty remote and difficult to reach, the natural environment of the island is still in a perfectly pristine condition. Tourists thus could come here to appreciate wonderful sandy beaches and clear seawater very well. Most of the beaches of Koh Kood are in the west as followings.
