Koh Mak Island
Welcome to the beauty of Koh Mak island situated off the west coast of Thailand. This site ails to give you all the information you need in terms of visiting the island, finding hotels and getting the very best out of your stay. This site was built based on at least five trips to the island and what we really needed as travellers and visitors to the island. We liked it so much we went back again and again and again and again and …. you get the picture.
We’ve added as many links as possible to hotels and accommodation as well as ferries and timetables of how to get there. We hopr you find the site useful and really appreciate your feedback and experience on the island so we can pass on the good, and rarely bad an ugly experiences to others.
Somewhere to stay on Koh Mak
The options for hotels, guest houses, short and long stay at resorts is quite overwhelming given the size of Koh Mak island. As a result, we’ve added listings for all of the resorts, many of which you can book directly on this site. Many of the resorts, especially those at the mid and budget end are not featured on Agoda, TripAdvisor and Booking.com. Simply put, these sites take excessive commissions, offer poor terms in some cases, and sometimes offer loss leading and confusing options for travellers ( Check the cancellation policies ). We strongly suggest you book through this site where fees to hotels and resorts are lower and you get ( what we believe ) is a far better service.
Things to do in Koh Mak
The island is idyllic, quiet, and laid back. This is truly a place to relax on any budget. The crime rate is pretty much non-existent. Motorbikes are left overnight with the keys in the ignition and are still there in the morning. There’s only one way in and out so its about as safe as anywhere can be. After a few trips there we felt we pretty much knew everyone and everything about the island.
Rent a bicycle, a motorbike, or just walk, and everything is literally minutes away. As well as the standard resorts and a restaurants, there’s street food, small local shops, supermarkets, bars and diving. Everyone is catered for. There’s even local ice-ceam.
The Guardian newspaper listed Koh Mak as one of Thailands lesser-known islands.
