Good to know
Koh Tao literally translates to “turtle Island” because the mountains are shaped like a turtle or 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 beautiful and you 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 more you 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 decide to go Island hopping, you’ll have the time of your life. You can grab a VIP bus in Bangkok and then catch a songserm ferry to Koh Tao. This island connects to other islands like Koh Samui, Phuket, Koh Phangen etc.
