Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan
Koh Tao, which means Turtle Island, is about 1h30 hours by speed boat from Koh Samui and forms part of the Chumphon Archipelago on the Central Gulf coast of Southern Thailand.
Historically, Koh Tao was once used as a detention place for political prisoners, but today it is a great place for anybody who wants to get away from the huslte and bustle of Thailand’s bigger tourist centers.
This small island, 21 km is ideally geared toward diving tourists as well as those who just want to get away from the crowds. For divers there are hardly any currents, wonderful coral fromations with abundant aquatic life and for non-divers there are withe sand beaches sheltered by steep hills – some only accessilbe only by boat.
Koh Nang Yuan
Koh Nang Yuan is a small island very close to Koh Tao. It is famous for its idyllic and picturesque white shell beach, diving spots and its great snorkeling off the beach. This a fantastic place to just relax, swim in safe warm water and take those photos for unforgettable memories.
