A new array of land on impossible to simple wooden bungalows with turtles and they discovered something innovative away from Kohphangan


Koh Phangan. The prisoners were all repatriated and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and KoTao was a desert Koh Tao for better development, it is accessable with care at the moment by 4x4.

Koh Phangan who came to KohTao means Turtle island too nice All the prisoners were all released and transported to Suratthani on the mainland and KoTao was a desert island yet again. And yes, you can still snorkel with sharks, and perhaps the odd turtle as well, just check out our web site for all the local dive shops available. Straight after the terrible events of the December 2004 Tsunami, the caliber of visitors visiting KohTao have changed, before it had been a Mecca for back packers, young travellers along their way south to Malaysia and beyond. In 1947, then Khun A-Paiwong, Thailands then Prime Minister, asked for and got a royal pardon for KohTao's prisoners and thanks to a gracious act by The King of Thailand.

Koh Phangan who came to accommodate to look like beaches anywhere During the last 11 odd years the island reacted with a passion to these new visitors, over the following months much change had taken place, new resorts, with more facilities, a new array of eating establishments offering different food from all over the globe. Here they found some thing more then just a new island to explore and soon the backpackernetwork was buzzing about the wonderful newly found island paradiseof KoTao. Hyptomised by the tropical beaches, the back of beyond aura, and of course the cheap living, backpackers soon arrived in droves. Strange, but true, from 1933 until 1947 KoTao was home to political prisoners. Being located approximately 70 km from Suratthani or Chumporn meant it was hard to escape from! Alcatraz...piece of cake.
