    I discussed with Wolf in a previous string what to do on Ko Kut. Does anyone know if we will be eaten alive by sandflies the first half of Oct? Or wheather there are small roads crisscrossing the island that we can explore by motorbike?

    Thank you

    Hi gonghouse,

    Ko Kut has a fair netwrok of roads you you can do some exploring by motorbike -- I'm not sure about the sandflies though -- it is nearby Ko Maak that has the bad rap in that regard.

    Thank you very much, I have had run ins with those those little guys and would prefer to go somewhere they will not. I will have 3 weeks in thailand early October and would prefer something calm..( I have not been out of Shanghai for 6 months) In your opinion where would a chronic city boy enjoy most of the day on an island without seeing many people yet not feel too isolated?

    I was originally thinking Koh Chang/Maak/Kut in early Oct.

    as somtam says, koh mak has sandflies. kuud does not-as far as i´m concerned-actually i never had ´n have probs with´these. kood is a big island and barely developped. this means nature, jungle, waterfalls,beaches. on the east-side is a village. you ´ll need a bike to get around, bikes are available, sandy roads run around the isle. chang is on its way to a second phuket, bailan beach is still o.k. i´m a fan of maak. koh wai is another option

    hope this helps-best regards
