Ko Tao Tourism
Ko-Tao (also pronounced as Koh-Tao), or more commonly called as the Turtle Island, is situated in the southern part of Thailand and its pioneer settlers concluded that its formation is in the shape of a turtle. Coincidently, it is an abode for many species of turtles and is also a paradise of nature’s best aquatic creations. Koh-To, where on one hand is a classic representative of Thailand’s rich cultural heritage, it is also a top preference for the people who want to enjoy the jazzy nightlife of the island. Buddhist monasteries and temples are an integral part of Ko-Tao vistas as much as are the beaches, restaurants and lush green vegetation of the island. There are not many high tides in the seas of Koh-Tao, so get ready to enjoy lots of water sports while on the island. Everything in Koh-Tao speaks about its grand history and ancestry and the inhabitants of the place are equally proud to share their culture through warm hospitality and a never fading smile.Go Thailand, go to Koh-Tao!
