View Resort & Restaurant
One of the places you MUST go when you visit Koh Tao is Sairee
View. Not so easy to find, being at the very very end of Sairee
Beach and up the hill it doubles as one of the best view points
on Koh Tao.
Apart from the view - and very AMAZING - the owner of Sairee
View has managed to restore a 6 meter long whaleshark skeleton.
That's a great feat, and something I admire him for. The story
goes that the skeleton was found in a very large cave further
up the hill from the restaurant, nobody knows how it got there
- a strange tale indeed.
Even if you are not hungry, Sairee View is worth a visit -
if for nothing else - then for the fantastic view. Still pictures
just doesn't do it justice. Go there around sunset and you'll
be taken aback - it's simply fantastic.
If you are after a bit of solitude and fresh mountain air,
then Sairee View will be your type of resort. The bungalows
are new, clean and shares one of the best view of Koh Tao
with the restaurant. It's a very small place, so you will
quickly get friendly with the owner and his wife. They are
both thai and very generous hosts.
