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.

The name Koh Tao means in thai language 'Turtle Island', people tell that this name is from Koh Tao's shape which is meant to look like an upside down turtle whilst other people claim its from the days when the sea around Koh Tao was rich with turtles and Koh Tao was their breeding site.

On June the 18th 1899, the then king of Thailand King Chulalongkorn (Rama 5 1868-1910) visited KohTao and left his monogram as evidence on a huge.large rock at Jor Por Ror Bay (near,next to] Sairee Bay. This location is honoured even today and get treated with the greatest of respect.

As KohTao´s reputation spread and quickly 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, bringing all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local farmers and fishermen quickly realised that business people from other places were developing their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, immediately began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands. From the very first bamboo A-Frame bungalows on the beach for 20 other wise known as Ferangs.

In the late 1990's KohTao´s first, and until recently, only road was constructed, the road runs North to South from the far side of Sairee beach to the southern settlement of Chalok Baan Kao. A new road is under construction towards Tanote Bay, and when finised it will open up the other side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment by four wheel drive. The island now has 24 hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir made to ensure that even in the dryest periods there is enough water for all. Every now and again progress can be a wonderful thing, fortunately Ko Tao has maintained its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.
