Book hotel before arriving at Koh Tao?


Im planning of going to Koh Tao for a couple of days in June and am wondering if I will need to book somewhere to stay before leaving the UK? Or is there lots of options when over there?

Thanks in advance

It's a lot cheaper to find your own place coz you can haggle and get them down on price. i never booked but if you wanna be sure then just book one night - top price id say 600 ...no more! and only book one night, coz ur sure to find more accomodation. ur gonna luv it! and go stay on freedom beach at the other end to sairee....its beautiful and i stayed in a hut for 60 baht.

The only time I would bother booking ahead is the first 2-3 days after Full Moon Party on Phangan as a lot of people make the switch over.

Still you would only need one night somewhere so that you can then see what's available.

There are no Bungalows for 60 Baht on Koh Tao! I would even go as far as not in Thailand. Bungalows on Koh Tao start at 400 Baht. Freedom Beach Bungalows has bungalows starting from 500 Baht for simple wooden bungalows up to 2500 Baht for AC ones. They have a web site with all the information on. I have just stayed there and I can only recommend the place.

agreed ,the cheapest bungalow i ever stayed in in thailand was 60bht and that was more than 15 years ago ,i did see a bungalow on koh tao last year for 250bht but a slight wind would have blown it over .we paid 600bht last year on koh tao for basic bungalows with own bathroom..
