Most people know Koh Tao as the place to go to get your scuba diving certification in Thailand. I’d heard mixed reviews of this little island in the Gulf of Thailand, with some dubbing it their favourite island in the country, and others feeling it fails to live up to the hype. Scuba diving wasn’t in the cards for our visit, but we were still able to meet some of the colourful underwater life just off the coast by doing some snorkeling. Not only did we visit during one of the island’s lower seasons, but our trip coincided with the Full Moon Party on nearby Koh Phangan, a combination that left us with Sairee Beach virtually all to ourselves.
What’s your opinion of Koh Tao? Awesome or overrated?
