Information about Koh Tao

oh Tao is to the northeast of Surat Thani, about 38 kilometers from Koh Phangan, and about 64 kilometers away from Chumphon.

Since 2005 it is now really easy to get to Koh Tao. You can drive with one of the high speed catamaran boats. You can also arrive from one of the neighboring islands (Koh Phangan or Koh Samui).

Diving in and around Koh Tao's beautiful coral reefs is the islands main attraction. Resorts on Koh Tao offer a wide range of accommodation to fit most budgets.

Traveling around the island and visiting other beaches and bays pretty easy.. Just off the concrete main road you have to be careful when driving on dirty roads. Pick -ups and taxies can be found almost everywhere.

It seems wierd that such a tourist paradise should have been at the beginning constructed as a political prision. The remote location, made it impossible to get away by swimming to the shore or nearby Koh Phangan. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands then Prime Minister, requested and got a royal pardon for the islands prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King. They were all repatriated and transported by boat to Suratthani on the mainland and Ko Tao was a desert island yet again.

In the early days getting to Koh Tao required a treacherous boat journey from the main land or near by islands, if and when the weather & seas permitted but the population of the island continued to grow steadily all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Arrivals & departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common place, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for beautiful nature, unique marine life and beautiful landscapes got bigger, easier access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to handle the large number of visitors being attracted to the island.

Around 1947 the very first settlers laid claim to a big portion of land on what is now known as Sairee Beach. They were the twin brothers Khun Oh and Khun Ueam who got to KoTao by boat from the next island of Koh Phangan, Koh Tao was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not prevent those first settlers from claiming their stake of land. The very first generation of today's community (began,started] settling when they brought their families and started to harvest and cultivate the on offer. Despite Koh Tao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see plenty of evidence of the large coconut plantations all over the island. The first settlers lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing fruit & vegetables and of course providing for themselves through fishing.

From the days of begining it used to be a prison camp, through to today's re-development, the island has retained it's sparkle, even it now offers something for everyone’s tastes and budgets.
