Koh Mak Activities – Cooking School, Disc Golf, Muay Thai


Besides being out on the water or exploring on the bike, Koh Mak has a couple of other activities to wile away the hours, should you feel the urge to leave the hammock.

Over at Ao Nid, Smile Cooking School has been running for many years to very favourable reviews, great for adults and kids alike.

You would get impossibly long odds on Koh Mak having the sport of Disc Golf, but there is indeed a course – a popular new pastime for late afternoon once the heat has gone out of the day.

Muay Thai too has now arrived on the island, with a new gym to put you through your paces.

And finally, to complete these other Koh Mak activities, you will also find a tennis court tucked away down behind Ao Kao Resort.

Taking you through the ingredients, techniques, pastes and then the cooking itself. 3 to 4 dishes prepared, Thai salad or spring rolls, a curry, fried or steamed fish or tom yam, sticky rice and mango – all of which you then get to eat.

Koh Mak Activities – Disc Golf

Brought to the island by a Thai enthusiast, the alternative sport of disc golf involves throwing a frisbee over a course of different length holes in order to land it in the shortest amount of throws in a basket (‘holes’). The number of throws is then totted up to create your score.
