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.

In the begining this tiny island was not inhabited, visited only by fisherman from not far away islands when seeking shelter during storms or also if a fishing crew was getting water or and supplies.

Around 1947 the very first settlers laid claim to a big portion of land on which is today called as Sairee Beach. They were the twin brothers Khun Ueam & Khun Oh who got to Ko Tao by boat from the next island of Koh Phangan, the island was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not stop those fortune seekers from staking their claim. The 1st generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought their families and began to harvest and cultivate the on offer. Despite Ko Tao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see loads of evidence of the huge plantations all over the island. The first settlers lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing fruit & vegetables and of course sustaining themselves through fishing.

Attracted by the wonderful coral reefs surrounding Koh Tao, and the growth in recreational scuba diving, quite a few companies have set up diving businesses on the island, these companies in turn designed resorts for their clientele, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite plush. Now a days, you can find everything from basic simple wooden bungalows with palm leaf roofs to elegant high class villas with their very own private swimming pool.

As The islands reputation spread and quickly got bigger as it widely became known all over world through international travellers and adventurous visitors. During the last 12 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 business people from other places were creating their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they also, immediately began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands. From the first bamboo A-Frame huts on the beach for back packers other wise known as farangs.
