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 Phangan, to name a few.
