I'm heading to Koh Tao at the beginning of August after a couple of days in Bangkok. We're probably going to travel by bus/ferry with Lomprayah as I've only ever read positive comments about them.
My question is should we book the travel and accommodation now or wait till we arrive? It's only 3 weeks away and I've heard August is quite popular. We'll probably stay a week before moving off the island and heading elsewhere.
I stayed about 10 years ago (also happened to be in August) but it seems much more popular these days! I can't remember how we found somewhere last time or if we booked in advance. I think a guy just came up to us on the pier!
