On June the 18th 1899, His Majesty the King Chulalongkorn (Rama 5 1868-1910) visited KohTaoand left his monogram as evidence on a huge rock at Jor Por Ror Bay near Sairee Beach.
They were the twin brothers Khun Ueam & Khun Oh who got to KohTaoby boat from the neighboring islandof Koh Panghan, the islandwas still under protection of the king in those days but it didn't stop those fortune seekers from claiming their stake of land.Kohtao is a nice island northeast of Surat Thani in Thailand.
You can book for a wide range of Guesthouses and Bungalows on Koh Tao for every kind of budget, availible for online reservation provided by PhanganIsland.com.
KohTao island is located approximately 75 kilometres east of the coastline between Suratthani and Chumporn in the Gulf of Thailand and it is about 20 km in size - so small but not too small.
The prisoners were all repatriated and transported by boat to Suratthani on the mainland and KohTaowas a desert islandyet again.
Suddenly the islandferries were disgorging people with suitcases, not backpacks, laptops not guitars, and what is this; trainers not flip-flops?!, and some had children too.
Local farmers and fishermen realised that major business people from other places were creating their island to accommodate to the needs of all these new customers and they too, quickly began to open their own businesses to fulfill all the customers demands.
Ko Tao is little; 21 square kilometer and half of that too steep to access.
