What can we say about Koh Tao? It's a 21 kilometer emerald jewel nestled in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand. Just a short ferry ride from neighbouring islands Koh Phangan and Koh Samui, this little slice of paradise is an island like no other.
From friendly locals to backpacking Westerners, straight-from-the-sea seafood to mouthwatering curries, whale sharks you can dive with to reef sharks you can swim with, hidden bays to popular beaches this a tiny corner of the world we consider ourselves fortunate enough to call our second home, and a place we can escape to whenever we need to take a ‘Thaim' out.
Whether you are ready to book a flight or are just in desperate need of a distraction, this is one place that is sure to steal your heart and put a smile on your face.
So put your feet up or grab yourself a coconut to sip on and click play!
