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 is strange that such a tourist tropical paradise was originally constructed as a political prision. The remote location, made it impossible to escape by swimming to the shore or nearby Koh Samui. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands Prime Minister at the time, asked for and received a royal pardon for KohTao´s prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand. All the prisoners were all repatriated and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and Koh Tao was deserted yet again.

KohTao is little, 20 sq kilometer and half of that too steep to access. The island is surrounded by a lot big sharks as well, nice friendly ones fortunately. And yes, you can still snorkel with sharks, and perhaps the odd turtle as well, just check out our web site for all the local dive centres available.

As KohTao´s reputation spread and quickly grew as it widely became known all over world through international travellers and adventurous visitors. During the last 11 odd years the island has changed in many different ways as it developed to become one of the major dive destinations in Thailand, attracting all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local farmers and fishermen quickly realised that major business people from other places were developing their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they also, quickly started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands. From the first bamboo A-Frame huts on the beach for 25} Baht a night other wise known as Ferangs.
