Good to know
Koh Tao translates to “turtle Island” for a reason: the mountains are shaped like a turtle, or as some say, simply because there are turtles on the island. If you’re looking for a relatively cheap place to dive, Koh Tao is the place for you. The diving sites are magnificent - you'll have more than 80 diving schools to choose from. If diving isn’t your thing, you can try snorkeling (and even swim with sharks if you’re up for an adventure!). If eating amazing food is what you're seeking, then you’re in the right place. You’ll find yourself making the tough decision on where to eat due to the immense amount of delicious options. The best decision you’ll make is when you choose to go island hopping, you’ll have the time of your life. You can grab a VIP bus in Bangkok and then catch a ferry to Koh Tao. This island connects to other islands like Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Phangen, to name a few.

We travelled from Bangkok to
We travelled from Bangkok to Koh Tao first by bus then by ferry. The bus ride to the pier was ok. We arrived at the pier at about 5am and the ferry was supposed to depart at 7am. In the end we left almost an hour later. The Ferry was a catamaran ferry which was really fast but also very bumpy. If you get sea sick very fast then I wouldn't recommend taking a catamaran ferry because it really does go up and down with the waves.

Longer than expected
Bus ride was comfortable, got blankets from the staff and made one 40 min break were you could buy also a warm meal. But instead of Chumphon Pier we started from another pier and much later so we got later to the island and the ride with the ferry took like 2 hours longer.

If you have stomach problems you will get seasick
If you get seasick go to the top floor right away and it might be helpful to take some medicine.

On time and welk organised
Bus stopped shortly for Food, and there is also short time between ferry and Bus so you can eat and stretch your legs.
