Day 2: Koh Tao
Although it's smaller than the other islands along the east coast, Koh Tao offers plenty to do. The island is renowned for its incredible snorkelling and diving opportunities with its abundance of marine life from colourful coral to sharks, rays, turtles and schools of tropical fish. Koh Tao is one of the top places to learn to dive in the world and with dive schools scattered along the beach you won’t be short of options, if you'd like to get dive qualified here.
If you fancy lingering a little longer to learn this new skill simply ask one of our travel consultants to add some extra days onto your trip.
Day 3: Koh Tao
Today is yours to continue enjoying Koh Tao, be it simply relaxing on the beach by your resort or making the most of the nightlife in the town by night. If you prefer to stay on land, there are several scenic hikes twisting through the jungle into coastal pathways where you can enjoy stunning views across the island.
