Ko Muk

Paradise found

Ko Muk is an island in the Southern Andaman Coast region of Southern Thailand. Muk is the Thai word for "pearl", so Ko Muk means Pearl Island.

Get in

By boat

Combined minibus and boat tickets can be booked from any Trang tourist information shop. For 300 baht you can get a minibus to the nearest jetty and a longtail boat to Farang Beach, whilst for 250 baht you can get the 11:00 minibus to the nearest jetty and aboard the only ferry, departing once a day. The driver of the boat and minivan is the same person. If you take the latter option it's recommended to arrange accommodation and a pick-up from the Ko Muk pier, otherwise you'll have a 3 km walk or 50 baht motorbike taxi ride to get anywhere on arrival.

The return trip is easier and cheaper, with the same ferry departing at 07:40. With no booking fees or middleman it is possible to get the ferry for 50 baht and a minivan to Trang for 100 baht, although 200 baht is the more likely combined fare.
