One word - wow! Everything about this place is just so charming. Picture perfect beach. Lovely climb up the hill for a spectacular view over the bay. You can snorkel just off the beach, or simply dip in the water and chill. There's a place...More

During the time of our visit (low season) the island was crowded and the beaches and restaurants filthy. There are lot’s of things to see and do on Koh Tao that’s worth your money..For us the trip to this island definately wasn’t.

I totally recommend this place. We spent 200 bath for Taxi per person and 100 for the entrance. It was worth it

...not actually sure what the hype is for, if I’m honest. It’s got the usual snorkel/dive contingent, snacks and beer are over-priced for the captive market. I was more impressed with their ecology drive than the place itself but still worth a visit. Pretty to...More

This place is really like a paradise. The pictures show this. I just think that the prices in the only restaurant available for tourists are very expensive. It's impossible to drink some beerq there

Spending Money & Currency Exchange (8 Replies)
Hi. I am going to Thailand this coming April and I am unsure if we are best changing our money in the UK or over in Thailand? If you recommend exchanging in Thailand is it best to take a debit/credit card, travellers cheques or sterling cash? Travelling as a couple in our late 20’s we were thinking of taking £500-£600 each. Flights and hotels have all been paid for so this would just need to cover food, drink, taxis, activities and shopping (although I will be taking my credit card in-case...More

Hi ReshaXiaoRou, It's really up to you. The big boats with lots of other people are cheaper (from around 800 THB per person for 3/4 day, often including fruit, water, sometimes even lunch. Longtails are more expensive, especially if you want a private boat, but you'll have much more flexibility with your schedule and where you stop. You would need to arrange your own food and drinks for the day, but again, this gives you more flexibility for your trip. Regarding accommodation, Koh...More

I would go to the Andaman side if you are wanting the rock climbing. There aren't really the cliffs that you are looking for on Samui or Koh Tao. I would look at Krabi for that and you could look at your diving in that area. If you go to the Krabi forums they will be able to help more with actual location and how to make the best use of your time. Enjoy!
