The blip of an island of Ko Mun Nork rarely finds itself on the itinerary of roving backpackers and travellers -- partly due to the cost of the resort, but also because it can only be visited as a part of an organised trip.
Ask many Bangkok residents though and you'll quickly hear some of the rave reviews Ko Mun Nork receives -- both as a romantic weekend getaway, but also for the occasional parties thrown on the island -- parties which are very much invite only.
Private label raves and romantic weddings aside, Ko Mun Nork is certainly worth consideration -- particularly on weekdays when you could well have the entire island to yourself.
There's just the single place to stay -- the imaginatively named Ko Mun Nok Resort. Unfortunately the digs are not quite up to the standard of the island, and, as neither is the food, this is a place you come to for the beach and the beach alone.
As far as pastimes go, there's the beach, the water and the salas -- that's about it! Yoga enthusiasts will be more than satisfied with some of the platforms dotted about, and there's apparently some ok snorkelling -- we never managed to leave our sala.
