Home - Travel stories - Ko Mak - Introduction

Ko Mak is a small island, near Ko Chang in Trat province. It is located about 315 km from Bangkok. The island covers an area of approximately 16 km ². and a circumference of about 27 km. There are many sandy beaches. There is a growing number of resorts on the island. But it's still very quiet.

To get there you have to go to Laem Ngop, and there take the boat. The road from Bangkok to Laem Ngop is good, almost everywhere four (or more) lanes.
By car you are in about three hours in Laem Ngop (motorway to Chonburi, then direction Klaeng - Chanthaburi - Laem Ngop).

From the Ekamai bus station in Bangkok buses depart to Laem Ngop regularly, it takes about 5 hours. From the bus station Ekamai and Mo Chit and from Suvarnbhumi Airport regular buses depart to Trat. There you have to take a local songtaew to Laem Ngop.
And then another hour by speedboat or three hours with a normal boat.

The coordinates are 11°49'9"N 102°28'48"E.

We have been there in February 2010.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
