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.

From 1933 until 1947 KoTao was inhabitated mostly by political prisoners. Being situated about 71 kilometres from the mainland meant it was hard to escape from! Alcatraz ... was nothing in comparison with this island.

KohTao island is situated approximately 70 kilometres east of the coastline between Chumporn and Surat Thani in the Gulf of Thailand and it is about 20 kmē in size - so small ... but big enough.

The years after 1980 brought to Koh Tao some of the first backpackers from Kohpangan who were looking for some thing new away from the masses and crowds going crazy for the Fullmoon parties on Koh Panghan. Here they discovered something more then just another party place and soon the back packer community had a new topic to talk about about the wonderful recently discovered island paradise of Koh Tao. Attracted by the serenity, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, back packers soon arrived in droves.

In 1947 the 1st settlers laid claim to a big part of land on what is now known as Sairee Beach. They were the twin brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who got to Koh Tao by boat from the next island of Kohpangan, Koh Tao was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not prevent those fortune seekers from staking their claim. The first generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought their families and began to cultivate and harvest the very rich. Despite KohTao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see plenty of evidence of the large coconut plantations all over the island. Their lives mainly consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing fruit & vegetables and of course sustaining themselves through fishing.
