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.

KohTao island is situated approximately 70 kilometres east of the coastline inbetween Chumporn and Surat Thani in the Gulf of Thailand and is about 21 kilometer² in size - so small ... but not too small.

It is strange that such a tourist paradise was originally abused as a prison. The remote location, made it very difficult for prisoners to get away by swimming to the shore or nearby Koh Samui. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand’s then Prime Minister, asked for and received a Royal Pardon for Koh Tao´s prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King. They were all pardoned and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and the island was deserted yet again.

As KoTao´s reputation spread and rapidly 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 ways as it developed to become one of the largest dive destinations in Thailand, attracting 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 too, immediately began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands.
