Thailand Ko Mak

Unlike its two larger neighbours, Ko Chang and Ko Kut, Ko Mak consists mainly of rolling farmland rather than jungle-draped mountains.

It’s a fun place to rent a bicycle and take a leisurely spin, stopping to make friends in the cafes and to watch the pineapples, cashews and rubber trees grow.

Ko Mak’s relaxed vibe and close-knit community make it a favourite of long-stay travellers. Small resorts that are ideal for families and couples back the two longest beaches, Ao Kao and Ao Suan Yai, while backpackers often choose the cheap huts on Laem Tukkata Beach.
