The Wanderland Guide to Koh Tao

Are you prepared for paradise?

Koh Tao is one of the most unique and magnetic destinations in Southeast Asia. There are pristine beaches to lounge on, lush jungles to hike through, and most famously, rich coral reefs to explore. It is one of the most visited islands in Thailand, and those who do it right often leave ranking it as one of their favorite destinations.

Hi, I’m Alex!

And I live on Koh Tao. I first visited the island during a summer abroad in college, and quickly returned post-graduation to work in the dive industry and make it my home. I’ve spent the majority of my twenties here — I kind of grew up on this island.

After years of randomly doling out advice, answering regular emails and social media messages, and crafting seasonal blog posts, I condensed everything I know and love about Koh Tao into this detailed and organized guide. I’ve essentially been researching the Wanderland Guide to Koh Tao since 2009!

And as someone who sees tourists come and go everyday – and helps many plan their trips — I can’t help but notice that most guidebooks give Koh Tao only a few outdated pages, and most bloggers only stop by for a few days.

The result? The vast majority of travelers have no idea how magical this island can be! They don’t realize how much this dream island has to offer beyond diving and drinking. They feel rushed upon arrival, miss out on Koh Tao’s hidden gems, and spend too much money. They only start to discover the best parts of Koh Tao as they’re about to leave, and have to scramble to alter their itinerary.

I get so excited when I talk to those traveling to Koh Tao, I pretty much have to sit on my hands not to fly to my keyboard and plan their entire trip for them. I have a Koh Tao shaped imprint on my heart and I want everyone who comes here to love this island as much as I do — that’s why I wrote this guide!
