Natural attractions in Koh Tao

Koh Tao Thailand, according to informed sources the most inexpensive place in the world where you can get a diving certificate.

Since the reefs around the island are shallow it is good for beginner divers. If you still have a fear of deep can just dive in shallow waters like you're in a giant aquarium. The feeling is unique and water world is enchanting .

Other popular attractions include mountain biking, rock climbing or simply serving azure beaches, which are very attractive to me. Here are high-tech background, and in some places still does not even have electricity.

It is for this reason hotel prices are quite low, and romantic vacation is guaranteed. This is a compromise between the islands of Koh Phayam and Ko Phi Phi. Here it is more relaxed and the food is really delicious.

There are beauty salons at a higher level even than beaches in Phuket. Prices of such services are very reasonable and most tourists visit every day. Keep in mind that the island of Koh Tao is quite different from the islands in the Andaman Sea.

Plan ahead travel and downtime is not in the rainy season. According to a friend of mine here could easily rest a few weeks on a lonely beach without feeling bored.

The nature of Koh Tao is a combination of high mountains covered with bushes, large smooth granite rocks and dense jungle. 65% of the island is covered with Highland, which are intact today and here you can see landscapes without human intervention.

Infrastructure of the island is undeveloped, the roads are narrow and the movement is best done with scooters and motor bikes. Even water speedboat is most convenient and you can see the most detailed island and make beautiful panoramic photos of Mango Bay and Tanote Bay.

For more pretentious travelers rich offer vacation on the neighboring island of Koh Phangan.
