Family trip to Ko Tao Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Ko Tao in Thailand is fairly called an “island of pensioners and children”. Though there are no aqua parks or amusement parks on its territory, there are still a lot of opportunities to spend time here with your children. Ko Tao, as well as other small islands, is perfect for active and curious children, who are ready for new emotions and experience. However, if your child intends to spend the whole time at the beach, he won’t be disappointed. There are more than a dozen great beaches in Ko Tao. They all have a different level of infrastructure, from deserted and wild, to civilized, which can offer everything you might need – a sunbed, a catamaran, jet ski, diving, and snorkeling equipment.
About a hundred accommodation places are represented on the island. There are luxury hotels and more modest inns focused on budget conscious tourists. Koh Tao Montra remains leader among … Open
If your child likes the underwater world, take him to the diving school. The ocean around the island is friendly towards the beginners and the rich underwater world will please even a teenager, who is experienced in diving. You can learn the local sea flora and fauna doing snorkeling. The water is transparent enough. Would you like just to travel a bit with your child? You can take a water taxi for a day at any beach. An excursion around the island will excite any child as the views are magnificent. Most definitely go to the neighboring Nang Yuan and visit the observation deck. If your child is ready for a long trip, visit Ang Thong National Marine Park.
You can discover the nature of Ko Tao on foot by yourself or with a group. The most important thing is to choose a route suitable for your child and not to forget a repellent. A child of any age will like the view from Two View and John-Suwan Viewpoint observation decks. You can also see with your own eyes Jor Por Ror, the monogram, that was made right on the rock after the King visited Ko Tao. If your child likes to ride a bicycle, you can rent it and start discovering the island. If the kid likes mountain climbing, take him to the climbing wall, where the climbers of different training levels practice. Copyright

During the winter time, you can take your child to the village of Chao Ley people (people of the sea) or how they are called, Chao Nem (water people). Those are sea gypsies, who spend their whole life in the sea on the boat, which they learn to operate from the early childhood. The rainy season the Chao Ley spend in the bungalows on the shore. They are quite talkative and friendly towards the strangers, they will gladly tell about their lifestyle, which will be interesting to any child. On Nui Beach you can visit the “Robinson’s bungalow”, an abandoned café, which looks like someone was really living here. Little children will certainly be interested in this.
Boys and some girls may also like Thai boxing. This ancient martial art hasn’t changed much since the time of its origin. In Sairee there is a whole stadium, where they teach Muay Thai. If your child doesn’t like it there, you can take him to the Monsoon Gym. If your child likes the risk, then in the Ko Tao whole loch you can meet the real sharks. Don’t be afraid for the safety of your children, this type of marine predators is not dangerous to people. Any girl will like the idea of spending at least an hour in one of the local SPA-salons, which offer a great variety of relaxing treatments, including the famous Thai massage. One of the best salons you can find in the center — Sairee Village.

Famous sights of Ko Tao Island

Red Pool

From the series “Most Scary Swiiming Pools”
The original red pool is available to guests of the Library Hotel on Koh Samui. Not everyone will dare to swim in it. The blood-red color of the pool water is the reason for this. The water gets such a rich and realistic shade because of the red mosaic tiles that cover the bottom and walls of the pool. Even hotel guests who know the secret of this pool do not always risk swimming in it. This pool really looks very unusual against the background of the surrounding exotic landscapes and cute resort environment. … Read further
