The King's Island - Travelling there
The choice is all yours, bicycle, horse cart, moped or hiking...
The complete ride around the island is about 14 km.
It is useless to rent a bike in Kratie as the village community rents some upon arrival, in front of the pagoda for two dollars a day or one dollar for the round trip along the island. You can also find bikes at Sala Koh Trong for the same prices.
Then you don't need to climb down the stairs at the Kratie peer nor to cross the beach pushing dead weight.
The trip by horse cart or tuk tuk around the island costs 10 dollars and takes two hours, it can be organized in about two hours by the village community or Sala Koh Trong.
Besides, there are always marauding moto-doups in front of the pagoda. They are being driven by friendly matronly women.
