The busiest time of the island is from November to March and in the month of August. The month of September to early November is the wettest months.

There are many things to do on the island. Snorkeling is very popular. Diving trips to Koh Ma and tours of the Angthong National Marine Park are highly recommended. On the island, there is a national park "Than Sadet National Park". The park is a great place for hikes and treks.
