The Islandhas many popular activities one being scuba diving at most of bays.
Suddenly the islandferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, portable computers not guitars, and what is this; trainers not flip flops?!, and some had children as well.
On June the 18th 1899, the then king of Thailand King Chulalongkorn (Rama 5 1868-1910) visited KoTao and left his monogram as evidence on a huge boulder at Jor Por Ror Bay next to Sairee Beach.
Kohtao is in the middle of a amazing paradise with many shaddy palms and crystal clear turquoise waters.
The islandis surrounded by big sharks too, nice friendly ones fortunately.
They were the twin brothers Khun Ueam & Khun Oh who got to Ko Tao by boat from the neighboring islandof Ko Phangan, Koh Taowas still under Royal Patronage in those days but it did not stop these fortune seekers from claiming their stake of land.
Koh Tao's weatheris the whole year a perfect for a holiday. Nice weatherdays and a nice sea breeze nearly everyday. For the purists, end of December to the end of March is the ideal tropical island experience.Ko Tao is a amazing island south of thailand.
