HOW TO GET TO KOH MOOK
The island of Koh Mook (Koh Muk) is fairly easy to reach, it is located near the mainland of Trang. Koh Mook belongs together with Koh Kradan, Koh Ngai and Koh Libong to the Trang islands. It’s possible to combine these beautiful islands with each other, highly recommended!
From the Kuan Tung Pier (Trang) to Koh Mook
If you come from Trang take a taxi to the Kuan Tung Ku Pier, this pier is located almost opposite Koh Mook. After that there is a crossing with a longtail boat of about 20 minutes. There is also a ferry several times a day to Koh Mook, which takes about half an hour. Most people book a combination ticket from Trang. This is cheaper than if you have to rent your own longtail boat at the pier.
