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.

The years after 1980 brought to KoTao some of the very first backpackers from Kho Phangan who were looking for something different avoiding the masses & crowds going nuts for the Fullmoon parties on Kho Phangan. Here they discovered some thing more then just another party place and soon the travel community had a new topic to talk about about the fantastic newly discovered island paradise of Ko Tao. Attracted by the tropical beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, back packers soon arrived in large numbers.

Immediately following the terrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the type of visitors visiting Ko Tao have changed, before it had been a Mecca for backpackers, year out students, and young travellers along their way south to Malaysia or North to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and beyond. Suddenly the island ferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, laptops not guitars, and what is this; sneekers not flip-flops?!, and some had children as well. A culture shock to most people, but generally the island reacted with a passion to these new visitors, over the following months much change has taken place, new resorts, with more facilities, a new array of eating establishments offering different food from around the globe, and even activities for families to do during the day, in case you get bored with laying on the beach.

As KohTao´s reputation spread and quickly increased 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 different ways as it developed to become one of the largest dive operation centres in Thailand, bringing all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local farmers and fishermen quickly 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 original bamboo A-Frame huts on the beach for to simple thatched bungalows other wise known as Ferangs.

From 1933 until 1947 KoTao was inhabitated mostly by political prisoners. Being positioned about 72 km from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was fairly escape proof! Alcatraz ... was nothing in comparison with that.
