Ko Maak, Ko Kut, Ko Wai etc in October

Posted by sarah100 on 13/9/2007 at 17:45

Off to Ko Chang on the 3rd October and plan to visit Ko Maak, Ko Kut, Ko Wai etc until Oct 13th.
A lot of places I've found tend to open on the 15th October....

Does anyone know if there are ferries running/places to stay during this time? Ideally it won't the be 'package deals' though as I'd like to be more flexible.

Any tips/help would be gratefully received!

Many thanks

The boats will still be running, but bear in mind that the reason a lot of the places will be closed at the start of the month is that October is a very wet month (not the wettest though) on Ko Chang. That said, the boats will still be running and I doubt you'll have too much problem finding a room.

Many thanks.

Do you know of where might be less wet in Thailand during this time? The least touristy the better.

Thanks again

If you're hoping to see those glorious sunsets after big storms, Koh Mak and Koh Kut will be your best bets. Accommodations on Koh Wai all face north and you have to cross the island on foot to see the sun going down.
