Like any other tourist destination, Koh Mak is usually "busy" during high season. People come mainly for relaxation, vacation, getaway from the crowd, and so on. Certainly, high season is a great time to spend your perfect holiday on any beach destination. Why?
#1 The weather, no rain, the day being shiny under the warm heat of the day. That means, they can relax on the white sandy beach, getting suntanned, and swim in the sea. These seem not possible during low season when the monsoon happens. But it does not mean the journey to the island in low season is not fun, in fact it is up to what people are looking for… the reasons for their travelling.
#2 For Koh Mak, there are some intertwined reasons why people travel to the island during low season. The first simple and general reason, particularly for those coming from the cold countries, Thailand is one of the top tropical destinations, so they can get away from the cold. Besides, Thailand is still a beach paradise for people of all ages. It then leads to the second point, especially for those who are returning for another visit to Thailand. They have discovered all the highlights of Thailand, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Krabi, and Samui, and maybe even Koh Chang, all the busy zones. So they are getting away from the crowd. They can be very keen to explore some new places and beaches to spend time for their holiday. Looking at the map, they are wondering what this small rectangular island near Koh Chang is and eager to find out. Book the flight, pack the stuff, and leave, just like that… and here they are, on Koh Mak.
#3 Here comes to the third reason. The nature and charm of Koh Mak tempt people for a longer stay. They make a trip to the island once, they never want to leave or always want to return. Once they return, it is not for a short period of time. They plan to stay longer and enjoy all natural assets and atmosphere that cannot be found in their own country.
Thus, the bottom line is, “how do people spend one perfect week on Koh Mak, especially during low season?”. The answer lies within a wide range of activities.
