KOH TAO

KOH TAO TRANSLATES AS "TURTLE ISLAND", SO NAMED BECAUSE OF IT'S SHAPE AND ALSO THERE WERE MANY OF TURTLES LIVING AROUND.

It's only about 21 sq Km and is remotely located about 70 km far from the mainland.

Ban's Diving Resort - Sairee Beach - Koh Tao - Thailand Ban's Diving Resort - Sairee Beach - Koh Tao - Thailand Ban's Diving Resort - Sairee Beach - Koh Tao - Thailand

From 1933 to 1947 Koh Tao was used to jail political prisoners of the Bowaradech Uprising. Many were transferred from Koh Tarutao to Koh Tao by reason of its location lonely in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand.

The community in Koh Tao was settled at the first time when the villagers from Koh Samui and Koh Phangan immigrated and were on the land of Koh Tao in 1947. Before that there were some people who came and used the land for coconut plantation and small fishery.

During the past 15 years the reputation of Koh Tao's natural beauty, especially its marine life and coral reefs due to the island's distance from the mouth of Mae Nam Tapi, which affords high visibility and an abundance of marine life. It soon became one of the major dive sites of South East Asia.

 

 

How to get here

Ban's Diving Resort - Sairee Beach - Koh Tao - Thailand

Getting to Paradise !
Koh Tao is located in the Gulf of Thailand just a short boat ride away from the bigger island of Koh Samui. There are a number of options for getting to Koh Tao depending on where you are coming from and your budget.

Bus and Boat
We have 2 offices located on Khaosan Rd in Bangkok (see attached map). Tickets can be arranged for you at our offices or made directly with the company, please make reservations at least a day in advance. To see a schedule of the prices, routes and times to and from Koh Tao.

Train and Boat
The State Railway of Thailand has daily departures to Chumphon and combined train and bus options can be purchased. The best train to take is the 2nd or 1st class sleeper trains which travel through the night. The express (EXP SP 85) train leaves at 19:15 from Bangkok and arrives in Chumphon around 5:00 am. Once is the Chumphon the boat leaves around 7:30 in the morning arriving at 10:30 on Koh Tao. Prices depend on classes, train reservations can also be booked at our office on Koh San Rd.

Airplane and Boat
If long hauls are not for you then I recommend flying to the island of Koh Samui and then taking a boat from there. Tickets can be purchased on-line from Bangkok Airways www.bangkokair.com There are daily departures from 6:00 to 19:40. If you would like to arrive on Koh Tao the same day that you leave Bangkok then make sure you take the flight that leaves at 10:10 or any earlier flights. There are 2 baots to Koh Tao daily one at 8:00 am and then the last ferry at 12 noon. Once at the Samui airport tickets can be purchased for the Lomprayah Catamaran or the Seatran Company, both boats are roughly a 2 hour journey. Tickets for both companies are 550 baht and they provide pick-up from the airport to the pier.

For planning your holiday and itinerary boat schedules can be found at www.lomprayah.com and airline tickets schedules at www.bangkokair.com Both websites offer online booking.
