Koh Tao island

Ultimate guide 2017
Koh Tao is an island with the most clear water in the Gulf of Thailand. So there are some beautiful beaches with huge boulders, but the main attraction is a snorkeling. In addition, due to the relatively small size of the island, there are many spectacular mountain trails, allowing to walk from one coast to another. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]

Hotels [edit]

Koh Tao has a lot of hotels for every budget. However, you can hardly find options for US$10 per night. But there are many hotels from US$30, located on an almost private beach, - as there are many secluded bays on the island.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Bangkok international airport (BKK). Next get to Koh Tao by Lomprayah catamaran. Please note, that from Bangkok to Chumphon you will get by bus anyway.

In many cases you may just walk to reach your destination, as Ko Tao island is relatively small. But the most popular transport options are water taxi, shuttle minibuses and car taxi.
