KOH TAO is the fantastic travelling and diving site in Thai Gulf. Just beloved and well known among Thai in the last recent years but among foriegn traveller it's mean diver paradise well known by the beautiful shade of the sea. That we can say the very best on earth.

KOH TAO consist of two main islands : KOH TAO and KOH NANG-YUAN almost all are mountain area only 30% are plain. There are three villages which are "BAN HAAD SAI REE" , "BAN MAE HAAD" and "BAN CHALOK BAAN KAO" 85 km. from Chumporn, 120 km. from Suratthani and 45 km. from Phangan, the nearest island. This made it a rather distance place in Thai eastern sea.

They face the north eastern monsoon from November to March. However, there are several island to hide it from the wind.

Traveller can make a trip to KOH TAO island all through the year. Bangalows are available at rest area on the beach including jeep. motorcycle and mountain bike for rent.

There are also boat and diving center. During the day, we hardly see traveller since they are out to sea diving task... early in the morning till the sun down. Interesting site are diving area for skin dive or scuba dive... which one do you prefer.

Right! one full day program for diving and travelling around in nature, rent a boat or take taxi boat all available at MAE HAAD PIER. But for those who appreciate scuba diving, a day is certainly not enough to search for the beauty of underwater world here. Since there are several different places for scuba loving. 3 to 4 days may be more suitable. At diving center, scuba training courses are available.

Take some courses for diving certificate which meet world standard request wherever you will be. Diving and Travelling places are all different in its beauty.
