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 KohTao means in thai language 'Turtle Island', people tell that the name is from Koh Tao's shape which somehow looks like an upside down turtle whilst others claim its from the days when the water around KoTao were rich with turtles and the island was their breeding area.

Straight after the horrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the caliber of visitors coming to Ko Tao have changed, before it had been a Mecca for back packers, year out students, and young travellers along their way south to Malaysia or North to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and beyond. Suddenly the island ferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, portable computers not guitars, and what is this; trainers not flip flops?!, and some had children too. A culture shock to most people, but generally the island reacted with a passion to these new visitors, over the following months much change had taken place, new resorts, with more facilities, a new array of restaurants offering different food from around the world, and even things for families to do during the day, when the beach becomes too much.

In the late 1990's the islands first, and until recently, only road was built, it 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 on the way to Tanote Bay, and when completed it will open up the far side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment with four wheel drive. KoTao now has 24 hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir built to ensure that even in the dryest periods there is enough water for all. Every now and again progress can be a wonderful thing, it´s a good thing KoTao has kept its chilled atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

It is wierd that such a tourist tropical paradise should have been first constructed as a prison. Being far away from anything, made it impossible to escape by swimming to the shore or nearer Koh Samui. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand’s then Prime Minister, asked for and got a royal pardon for KohTao´s prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King. All the prisoners were all released and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and KoTao was a desert island yet again.
