-By car. You could also drive to Trad as well. However it is not possible to take the bus to Koh Kood. You could park the car at the pier where you buy the ticket. With this way, it is safe for your vehicle to be well looked after in the parking with the shade.
After the arrival by ferry or by the speed boat in Koh Kood, most of the service you get from the main land before you get in the ferry. They have already included the transfer from the pier after you arrive in Koh Kood to the hotel you are going to stay in. Just let them know which hotel you are going to stay so that they could drop you off at the hotel.
During your stay , there are nice beaches for you to enjoy resting and sun bathing with clear sea water and peaceful. You could also rent the 4×4 truck with driver to take you around to see the nature around the island like Klong Choa waterfall , the Giant big tree of Koh Kood. The most famous thing to do is diving for someone who has experience and snorkeling for the beginners. There are tour companies where you could chose to join in the group. It would cost around 900THB – 1,000THB. However if you prefer to take the private trip by your own, the cost would starts from 12,000 THB – 14,500THB just for your own.

The sea is clear in Koh Kood and there is still not many people visit. It is the place where you still could find the peacefulness and relax. Not too many people and crowded as in other island like Phuket , PP island or others. Koh Kood would be one of the new choice for you as the next visit while travelling to Thailand.
