Koh Tao is a tropical Paradise Island in the Gulf of Thailand, with just 21 square kilometers of area is a perfect get away from the rustle of big cities without losing the socialization, good bars, restaurants and services.
I fall in love with Koh Tao during my first visit in the begging of 2013 and since then my stays was just get longer and longer here, now I call this island home.
One of the things I love about Koh Tao is the sense of community since the occupation on the island is pretty recent. So everybody that are here for long term want to make the island a good place to live and visit.
