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 is wierd that such a postcard like paradise was at the beginning setup as a prison island. The remote location, made it impossible to find a way to escape by swimming to the mainland or nearer islands. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand’s Prime Minister at the time, asked for and got a royal pardon for the islands prisoners and with thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand. All the prisoners were all pardoned and transported by boat to Suratthani on the mainland and Koh Tao was deserted yet again.

In the late 1990's the islands very first, and until recently, only road was built, 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 on the way to Tanote Bay, and once completed it will open up the far side of the island for greater development, it is accessable with care at the moment by 4x4. KohTao now has 24 hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir constructed to ensure that even in the dry season there is enough water for all. Occasionally progress can be a wonderful thing, fortunately the island has kept its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

The 'Turtle Island', has lots to offer but hasnīt lost what attracted backpackers here in the first place, itīs still a little piece of tropical paradise for everybody to share and enjoy.

On the 18th of june 1899, the King Chulalongkorn (Rama 5 1868-1910) visited Koh Tao and wrote his sign as evidence on a huge.large boulder at Jor Por Ror Bay (near,next to] Sairee Bay. This rock is worshipped until today and get treated with great respect.
