i was planning on staying on one of the islands in trat on my way to cambodia , but every resort i look at i find is not good value for money , now i have found this place and the main land of trat
so my question is would it be better to stay on the main land and do day trips out to the island or would u just go to one of the islands (ko muk, kut)
I'm not familiar with that particular resort, but I'd definetely lean towards staying on the islands -- otherwise you'll be spending half your time tooing and froing on ferries and transport.
I agree with Somtam. No point in staying in a place where you have to travel 40-50 km just to make day trips out to places where you could be staying.
Prices at that resort start at over B3000. That's above and beyond what most places charge on Koh Chang, Koh Mak, Koh Kut, and Koh Wai, except for the very high end places. What do you consider good value for money?
Better to stay on one of the islands.
between inconvenient ferry schedules and the time getting to and from, you are definitely better off staying out on the islands as the others suggest. plus, the cost of those ferry boats isn't cheap either, and that cost would add up quickly.
there are day trips that go from island to island and back if you are interested in having a look at more than one place. there are also good snorkeling trips from almost any beach and/or resort that will give you a good overall view of the area.
if you are looking for a specific recommendation, we thought that Koh Mak Buri Hut Natural Resort was excellent value for money and a great place to relax on our visit there in late December 2009. regards.
