KoTao islandis situated approximately 65 km east of the coastline between Suratthani and Chumporn in the Gulf of Thailand and is about 21 kilometer in size - so small but not too small.
Kohtao has unnumbered undeveloped remote beaches and coves.
Suddenly the island ferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, laptops not guitars, and what is this; trainers not flip flops?!, and some had children too.
From the days of being a prison, through to its current development, Turtle islandhas retained it's sparkle, though it now caters for everybodys requirments and budgets.
Ko Tao is surrounded by sharks too, nice friendly ones fortunately.
The first generation of todays community (began,started] settling when they brought their families and started to cultivate & harvest the rich) soil and natural resources KoTao still being under Royal Patronage, plots of land were claimed, and cleared for coconut plantations. You will still see loads of evidence of the large coconut plantations all over the island.
Local farmers and fishermen realised that major business people from other places were creating their islandto accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they also, quickly began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands.
