It seems strange that such a tourist tropical paradise should have been originally constructed as a prison.
The island of Kho Tao is one of Thailand's amazing tropical paradise. Blessed with golden beaches and secluded bays, people from many different countries come back year after year to experience the amazing feeling of the island.
KoTao is petite; 21 square kilometer and 50% of that too steep to access.

Not like before 2000, visitors can get today everything from cheap simple wooden huts with thatched roofs to elegant exclusive villas with their own private swimming pool and facilities.
Attracted by the beautiful coral reefs surrounding KoTao, and the growth in sport scuba diving, a number of companies have started divebusinesses on the island, these companies in turn developed exclusive resortsfor their customers, and over the years several of these resortshave become quite plush.
Kho Tao is full of undeveloped remote beaches and waterfalls.
