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 strange that such a postcard like paradise should have been first used as a prison island. Because of the remoteness, made it impossible to escape by swimming to the mainland or nearby Koh Samui. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand’s then Prime Minister, asked for and received a royal pardon for Ko Tao´s prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand. They were all pardoned and transported by boat to Suratthani on the mainland and Koh Tao was deserted yet again.

In the late 1990's Koh Tao´s first, and until recently, only road was laid, it runs North to South from the far side of Sairee 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. Koh Tao now has twenty four 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. Occasionally progress can be a wonderful thing, it´s a good thing the island has maintained its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

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