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.

As The islands reputation spread and quickly grew 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 developing their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, quickly started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands. From the original bamboo A-Frame huts on the beach for strangers other wise known as farangs.

Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding Koh Tao, and the quick growth in recreational scuba diving, a number of companies have set up diving businesses on the island, these companies in turn developed exclusive resorts for their clientele, and over the years several of these resorts have become quite plush. These days, you can find everything from basic simple wooden bungalows with thatched roofs to elegant up-market villas with their own exclusive swimming pool.

Around 1947 the first settlers laid claim to a large portion of land on which is now called as Sairee Beach. These were the twin brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who reached KohTao by a fishing boat from the next island of Koh Panghan, the island was still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not stop those first settlers from claiming their stake of land. The very first generation of today's community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and began to harvest & cultivate the on offer. Despite KohTao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see lots of evidence of the large plantations all over the island. Their lives consisted of harvesting coconuts, growing vegetables and fruit and of course providing for themselves through fishing.

In the late 1990's Ko Tao´s very first, and until recently, only road was built, the road runs North to South from the far side of Sairee beach to the southern settlement of Chalok Baan Kao. A new road is under construction towards Tanote Bay, and once completed it will open up the far side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment with four wheel drive. Ko Tao now has twenty four hour electricity on the island too and finally they have had a water reservoir built to ensure that even in the dry periods 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.
