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 'Turtle Island', has loads to offer but it hasnít lost what attracted backpackers here in the first place, its still a petite piece of tropical paradise for everybody to share and enjoy.

As Ko Taoīs 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 major dive operation centres in Thailand, bringing all levels of divers and water lovers alike. Local farmers and fishermen 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 clienteles demands. From the original bamboo A-Frame huts on the beach for 15 other wise known as Ferangs.

From 1933-1947 the island was inhabitated mostly by political prisoners. Because it's situated about 70 km from the mainland meant it is very hard to escape from! Alcatraz ... was nothing in comparison with Koh Tao.

In those days getting to Koh Tao required a treacherous boat journey from the main land or near by islands, if and when the weather & seas 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 beautiful nature, unique marine life and amazing landscapes got bigger, easier access was made available when better built and safer boats were brought in to cope with the number of backpackers being attracted to the island.
