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.

It didn’t sink. It arrived on time more or less. Life is good.

Ferry was good and on time as scheduled . Pick up service was 50 mins late and we haven’t been notified that they were late. After 30mins we had to call up the main office to ensure that we were going to be picked up.

Instead of living at 11:30
Instead of living at 11:30 we left at 13:00. Inside it was very dirty, all our bags were placed in the floor, dirty and wet. In the seats there were some yellow stuffs which coloured even our skin, we don't know what was it and we prefer not to know...
