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.

At the beginning it was a prison, through to its current tourism boom, the island has retained it's magic, though it now caters for everyones tastes and costs.

Ko Tao island is situated about 65 kilometres east of the coastline between Suratthani and Chumporn in the Siamese Gulf and is about 21 kilometer˛ in size - so small ... but big enough.

In 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 & Khun Ueam who got to Koh Tao by a fishing boat from the next island of Koh Phangan, the island was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it didn´t stop these first settlers from claiming their stake of land. The 1st generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and began to cultivate & harvest the rich) soil and natural resources KoTao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see loads of evidence of the huge coconut plantations all over the island. Their lives consisted mainly of harvesting coconuts, growing fruit & vegetables and of course sustaining themselves through fishing.

As Ko Tao´s reputation spread and rapidly increased 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 ways as it developed to become one of the major dive destinations in Thailand, attracting all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local fishermen and farmers 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 began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands. From the original bamboo A-Frame bungalows on the beach for 20 other wise known as farangs.
