Ko Kut (Koh Kood) Island is located in Trat Province, eastern Thailand. The island is rather flat, with a good number of wonderful beaches with crystal clear water (Ta Pho Beach, Khlong Chao Beach, Thakian Beach, Phrao Beach etc.). Inland, the island is very wild with a lot of coconut and rubber tree plantations located in the plains. The fishing village of Ao Salat (on the North East of the island) is home to around 300 people, making it the largest settlement on the island.
The Champagne and Caviar service in the surf itself is legendary. All facilities on the beach are first class. That's why most cruisers just make this a beach day.
The village of Ao Salat is built on stilts in the water, and is quite interesting and well worth the rather long road trip to get there. Trekking to the Nam Tok Khlong Chao waterfall is also popular.
The local currency is the Thai Baht, which is divided into 100 satang. ATM's everywhere.
The national language is Thai. However, English is widely understood and some Chinese dialects are also spoken.
