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 the begining this little island had no one living on it, visited only by local fishermen from near by islands when looking for protection during thunder storms or also if a fishing crew was in need of fresh water.

In those days getting to KoTao required a treacherous boat journey from near by islands or the main land, if and when the seas & weather permitted but the population continued to grow steadily all the same, even when simple life was hard without much reward. Departures & arrivals were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common place, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for beautiful nature, unique marine life and amazing landscapes grew, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to handle the large number of backpackers being attracted to the island.

In the late 1990's KohTao´s first, and until recently, only road was constructed, the road 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 other side of the island for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment by four wheel drive. The island 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 periods there is enough water for all. Occasionally progress can be a wonderful thing, fortunately the island has maintained its chilled atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.

Straight after the horrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the caliber of visitors coming to Koh Tao have changed, before it had been a Mecca for back packers, 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 many, but generally the island reacted with a passion to these new visitors, over the following months much change had taken place, new resorts, with more facilities, a new array of eating establishments offering cuisine from around the globe, and even things for families to do during the day, when the beach becomes too much.
