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 early days getting to Koh Tao 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. Arrivals & departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and a world of dreams, the boat will come another day. Consequently, as its reputation for fabulous nature, outstanding marine life and amazing landscapes got bigger, better access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to cope with the large number of back packers being attracted to the island.

It seems wierd that such a amazing paradise was first abused as a political prision. Being far away from anything, made it very difficult for prisoners to escape by swimming to the mainland or nearer islands. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands then Prime Minister, requested and got a Royal Pardon for Koh Tao´s prisoners and with thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King. They were all repatriated and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and Ko Tao was a desert island yet again.

Dating from 1933-1947 Ko Tao was home to political prisoners. Because it's situated approximately 70 km from Chumpon meant it is very hard to escape from! Alcatraz ... piece of cake compared to Koh Tao.
