A Guide to Koh Tao Thailand

One of the great things about Thailand is there are many islands to explore and find new adventures going to somewhere new and exotic. Koh Tao Thailand is one of these places. Located on the Western shore near the Gulf of Thailand, it is an island dedicated to the tourist industry.

Koh Tao Thailand otherwise Known a Turtle Island

The name Koh Tao refers to its distinct shape. It has often been remarked that looks similar to a turtle. This is an interesting coincidence as the island is a breeding ground for Hawksbill turtles and Green turtles. In recent times there has been a concerted effort to preserve the populations of these turtles and the area in general is working hard to conserve the natural environment that attracts the touriss.

Koh Tao Diving

A lot of people come to Thailand to explore under the sea. Thailand’s Koh Tao is one of the best places to visit in Thailand for scuba diving. The area’s economy is almost exclusively tourism and scuba diving especially is its specialty. Do not worry if you are inexperienced as there are numerous schools that can help you learn and help to make sure you are safe while diving. The island prides itself on the quality of its instruction and it is something they have worked hard on in recent years.

Koh Tao Climbing

There are other great activities to enjoy as well. The area has a number of granite boulders and thick forests. This means it is ideal for people who enjoy spending their day hiking and rock climbing. When it first became popular as a resort it was mostly frequented by single adventurous tourists.

Koh Tao Fishing

As an island Koh Tao Thailand is also a fantastic place to go to if you enjoy fishing. The sea is rich with species of fish such as marlin, sailfish, barracuda and snapper, so the likelihood is you will find something that meets your approval!
However in recent years more of them have come back with their families, taking advantage of the fact that the area is relatively quiet. The road infrastructure is also improving, making it much more accessible than in previous years. There are also frequent ferries to the island. There are numerous options depending on budget and level of accommodation that you want while on the ferry.

Koh Tao Travel

You can also get regular train rides from Bangkok that are relatively inexpensive, ideal if you want to take a break from the intensity and partying in the city! There is no airport on the island so you have to get a transfer. This is worth noting when booking with a travel package to ensure that this is included.

In short Koh Tao Thailand offers an experience that is worth the extra travel. You can find out more by going online and looking for travel package and listing websites.
