Koh Tao is one of Thailand’s best-kept secrets and a favorite among scuba divers due to its well-varied marine life and considerably low prices. It may be a tiny island on the western part of the Gulf of Thailand, but it explodes with enigmatic beauty and exciting adventures.
Sometimes called Turtle Island, Ko Tao offers a remote tropical island appeal with just about enough places to stay, eat, and shop. It is far from being crowded and only has a few attractions. But what it has are so iconic, you could not miss them for the world. John-Suwan Viewpoint, Koh Nangyuan, Sairee Beach, Haad Tien, Mango Viewpoint, Taa Toh Lagoon, and Tanote Bay are the must-visit sites within Koh Tao, offering amazing beach experiences with accommodations that range from basic to luxury.
One of the easiest ways to go to Koh Tao is via the Samui International Airport, which serves the major cities in the region, including Bangkok, Singapore, Phon Penh, Hong Kong, and Penang.
