Top destination around Koh Tao - Ko Tao Island

Another nuance you should remember when renting a motorbike or a car: don’t leave your passport as collateral. There is a high chance that the crooked owners will ask you to pay for the non-existent repairing of a vehicle to get your document back. If you don’t have an A-category driving license and an additional insurance, the insurance company won’t cover the cost for the hospital in case of an accident, even if it wasn’t your fault. There will also be no payment if you consumed any amount of alcohol before the accident.

When talking to a Thai, remember that the head is a sacred part of the body for the locals and you shouldn’t touch it. It is also unacceptable to give or take something with an “unclean” left hand, which they use here for the hygiene. On the whole, the locals are quite conservative, and they disapprove of any disturbance from the travelers, even out of ignorance. The inhabitants of Ko Tao speak in calm and moderate tone, keeping a smile on a face. Thai smile everywhere and always and they expect a smile and a calm tone from the person they are talking to. The important thing is to just smile without a reason.
