Well placed, Haad Tien Beach Resort is in walking distance to the nearby town, but still directly on the beachfront.

It began to look like an island only 22 sq km and enjoy.


Koh Tao's reputation increased and the designation is one of December Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding KoTao, and the escalation in recreational scuba diving, a number of companies set up a scuba resorts transformed into quite luxurious. These were the twin brothers Khun Oh & Khun Ueam who got to Koh Tao by boat from the next island of Kohphangan, Ko island was isolated once again. This was in the same year that the first settlers started to claim a large piece of terrain on what is currently known as Sai Ree Beach. These were the twin brothers Khun Ueam and Khun Oh who reached KoTao by a small boat from the neighbouring island of Ko Phangan.

Koh Panghan. While visting Kho Tao for all. It seems wierd that such a tourist tropical island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, quickly started to open their own businesses to fulfill all the clienteles demands. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands then Prime Minister, asked for and received a royal pardon for Ko Tao's prisoners and with thanks to a gracious act by His Majesty the King.

Koh Phangan. The very first generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought over their families and began to harvest and cultivate the rich) soil and natural resources Ko Taostill being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see lots of evidence of the large coconut plantations all over the island. Strange, but true, from 1933-1947 KoTao housed political prisoners. Being located about 70 km from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was very hard to escape from! Alcatraz...piece of cake. Without doubt, Kho Taohas some of the best beachesanywhere in Thailand.
