These trees are beautiful and worth a visit. We hired bikes (as we did on all the islands - best way to get around by far), and went to visit them on the way to the Huang Nam Kaew waterfall. So it makes a nice...More

Just to co clarify a few things. This tree is a tamarind tree - in Thai it is called Makham Yak, which is also what is written on road signs leading to the tree. Makham is tamarind and yak is a Thai mythical creature similar...More

The great appeal of Ko Kut is that most of it is still covered with virgin tropical rain forest, with trees, vines, and undergrowth so thick it is impossible to walk through it. Two trees in particular are revered by the islands, who say they...More

We visited this old tree just after Loy Krathong. Many people had been and placed items to make merit because of this. It was quite moving - there is also a lovely resident dog, who seems to think it is his job to guard the...More

These trees are really impressive and interesting. It's a great idea to show them to anyone who is visiting a rainforest for the first time. My family, who do not travel to South East Asia often, found the trees fascinating.
