Visitor's Guide to Koh Tao (Ko Tao)

Articles and information about Koh Tao, a Thai island also known as Ko Tao and Tao Island. It is located about 45 kilometers north of Koh Phangan, in the Surat Thani Province in the lower southern region of Thailand. It is most well-known for issueing more PADI scuba diving certifications then almost any other location in the world (second only to Cairns Australia) and for its dive spots that are shallow enough to be safe for beginning divers.

Transportation to Koh Tao
Koh Tao is accessed by boat, either from the Thai mainland at Chumphon City or Surat Thani City, or from one of its neighbor islands, Koh Phangan or Koh Samui.
