Koh Tao island is situated about 70 kilometres east of the coastline inbetween Suratthani and Chumporn in the Gulf of Thailand and its approximatly 22 kilometer in size - so small but not too small.
All through the last twelve years KohTao has changed in a number of ways as it developed to become one of the main dive islands in Southeast Asia, drawing all levels of divers and water lovers alike.
Immediately following the terrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the type of tourist coming to Koh Taohave changed, previously it had been a Mecca for backpackers, young travellers along their way south to Malaysia and beyond.
This small islandwas still under Royal Patronage in the early days, but it did not inhibit these fortune hunters from staking their claim. The first generation of today's community started settling when they brought their families to KohTaoand began to cultivate and reap the rich earth and natural resources on offer. In spite of it still being under Royal Patronage, acres of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see lots of proof of the very large coconut plantations all over the island.
Despite KohTaostill being under Royal Patronage still see loads of evidence of the huge coconut plantations all over the island.
Consequently, as its reputation for gorgeous nature, unique marine life and beautiful landscapes got bigger, easier access was made available when safer constructed were brought in to cope with the number of back packers being attracted to the island.
