Why Visiting Koh Kho Khao in April is The Best Thing Ever

Having an island with long golden beaches almost all to yourself is a rare thing in a country like Thailand. But it is possible. One example is Koh Kho Khao north of Khao Lak in Phang Nga Province being peaceful all year and almost abandoned after the end of the high season.

April is the end of the high season meaning higher temperatures but not being the rainy season quite yet. While some restaurants and hotels shut down, some remain open with very few guests.

The island, which was totally wiped out by the 2004 tsunami has literally no shopping or entertainment, and there is not much to see more than grazing buffalo and some mangroves. But if you’re looking for a deserted beach destination, peace, and tranquility — this is the best thing ever!

I bought a GoPro camera just before we went to Thailand this time, and it was a lot of fun to put together this video. The model I used is a GoPro Hero3 White Edition Slim and the locations in the video are Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Krabi, Lam Thap, Ao Nang, Railay Bay, Poda Island, Koh Kho Khao and Phuket. Please watch the video in 720p60 HD.
