|Kho Tao is a beautiful islandsouth of thailand.
Local farmers and fishermen quickly realised that business people from other places were developing their islandto accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, immediately began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands.
Arrivals and departures were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common place, so back to the hammock and the world of dreams, the boat will come another day.
Koh Tao is situated in a tropical paradise infringed with coconut palms and crystal clear turquoise waters.
It has loads to offer but hasn't lost what attracted back packers here in the 1st place, its still a small piece of paradise for everyone to share and enjoy.
Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand's Prime Minister at the time, requested and received a royal pardon for KoTao's prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand.
Ko Tao offers many popular things to do one being diving at most of Kho Tao beaches.
The islandis surrounded by sharks too, nice friendly ones fortunately.
