Koh Tao, Thailand is well-known for its numerous dive sites and has grown into one of the most popular diving spot in the country. The island with only an area of 21 sq km lies north of Ko Samui and Ko Phang-ngan. Koh Tao boasts about 30 different dive sites all pretty close by, with the furthest away being Hin Bai.
The island is unique in many ways and not just because it offers the best scuba diving in the Gulf of Thailand. Conveniently small, with a real international community, truly great cuisine at reasonable prices, fantastic night life, exciting activities and stunning vistas, Koh Tao really is worth a visit.
