Koh Madsum & Mr. Kitt's Journey

Once known as Koh Madsum, this island took on its Pig Island identity when Mr. Kitt encountered four distressed pigs at a market in Surat Thani. These pigs, distinct from the others, resonated with his compassionate heart. Recognizing their family bond, he chose to keep them together. The pigs were purchased, becoming his companions on Koh Madsum.
