Ko Tao, royal property, initially is an island whose objective was to incarcerate prisoners.
The primary purpose has been abandoned,
then people are installing to grow many fruits including coconuts.
Families still on the island have now ceased to carry coconuts on an industrial scale,
and those who received an opening to the sea began to receive tourists very briefly in the 1990s.
Nowadays, most islanders live from tourism during the diving and hotels mainly.
Although tourism is a big part of the money generated on the island,
Koh Tao has nothing to do with other nearby tourist islands such
as Koh Samui or Koh Phangan

    Koh Tao is a tiny island, just 7 km by 3, and to this day it remains a green jewel in the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Indeed many of the dive schools, business owners and local government officers on Koh Tao are committed to maintaining its natural beauty and bio diversity. For more information on the ecological work undertaken by the Marine Branch of the Save Koh Tao Community Group, visit: . Koh Tao Star Villa would like to pay particular tribute to Dev and Chad at New Heaven Dive School and Nathan at Crystal Dive Resort for their efforts in this endeavour. The good news is that more and more dive schools and other businesses are becoming involved in these efforts.
