Koh Tao. Straight after the horrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the type of visitors visiting Ko Taohave changed, previously it had been a Mecca for back packers, young travellers along their way south to Malaysia and beyond. Strange, but true, from 1933 until 1947 Ko Taohoused political prisoners. Being located about 75 km from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was fairly escape proof! Alcatraz...piece of cake. The island of Koh Tao is one of the country's amazing tropical gems. Blessed with golden beachesand secluded bays, people from many different countries come again every year to experience the unforgettable Thai culture.

Koh Tao. From the days of being a prison camp, through to its current redevelopment, Turtle island has retained it's sparkle, though it now caters for everyone's tastes and costs. KoTao is little; 21 square kilometer and 50% of that too steep to access. Around 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailand's then Prime Minister, requested and got a Royal Pardon for the islands prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand.

Koh Phangan. Here they brought in the globe. This small island was still under Royal Patronage in those days, but it did not avert those fortune seekers from staking their claim. The very first generation of todays community started to settle when they brought their families to Ko Taoand began to cultivate and harvest the rich soil and natural resources the island had to offer. Notwithstanding it still being under Royal Patronage, pieces of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You can still see loads of verification of the very large coconut plantations all over the island. Kohtao's weather is almost always a perfect for a holiday. Nice weather days and a steady ocean breeze nearly everyday. The best time for a visit, late December to late of March is the ideal vacation island weather.Koh Taois a small island south of thailand.
