Koh Tao is an island in the Chumphon Archipelago group of islands in the southeastern part of Thailand. It has some of the best and cheapest diving spots in the world. On one hand, it has a proud and vibrant local culture, and on the other, has a relaxing atmosphere and an exciting night life.
Koh Tao, being synonymous to diving, requires four days if one wants to do a PADI or ISSI diving course. Most travellers come here for diving education. However, if you're here only to relax, a two-day trip works just fine. Koh Tao is known for its pristine white sand beaches, lantern-lit restaurants, delicious food, and of course, the abundant sea turtles residing on its shores, as suggested by its name. Koh Tao is known to be the laid back and less developed neighbour of Koh Samui and Koh Pha Ngan. The island offers the visitors a chance to see the beautiful corals, bull sharks and if you're very lucky, whale sharks. Besides scuba-diving, swimming and snorkelling, the island has other attractions like hiking and rock-climbing on its eastern side.
