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 late 1990's Koh Taos first, and until recently, only road was constructed, it runs North to South from the far side of Sairee beach to the southern settlement of Chalok Baan Kao. A new road is being developed on the way to Tanote Bay, and once completed it will open up the other side of the island for greater development, it is accessable with care at the moment by four wheel drive. The island now has twenty four 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, its a good thing KoTao has kept its relaxed atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

It seems strange that such a tourist paradise should have been originally abused as a jail. The remote location, made it very difficult for prisoners to get out by swimming to the mainland or nearer Koh Phangan. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands Prime Minister at the time, requested and got a Royal Pardon for Ko Taos prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand. They were all released and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and KohTao was a desert island yet again.

The name KohTao means in thai language 'Turtle Island', some tell that the name is due to Koh Tao's shape which is meant to look like an inverted down turtle whilst other people say its from the days when the water around Ko Tao was rich with turtles and Koh Tao was their breeding area.

From 1933-1947 KoTao housed political prisoners. Because it's positioned about 65 kilometres from the mainland meant it is hard to escape from! Alcatraz ... piece of cake in comparison with 'Turtle Island'.
