Remain several months in Koh Tao

    Remain several months in Koh Tao is possible and ca can sometimes become indispensable if you want to make a Divemaster training to Koh Tao.

    • The the months rentals (or) long term accomodation) to Koh Tao: it is possible to find a House rentals or House rental in the month.
      Effective minimum 6000 THB per month for the rental of a room. If you have several, rent a House can be a good idea. For a house in Koh Tao, count area around 10000THB per month. If want to make you happy, you will find houses in prestige for 30000THB per month.
      For rentals in the month. a surety You will be ask to 2000 to 3000 THB. Often lease in the month do not understand (water, electricity, Internet, TV) loads that may reach 1000 THB. Depending on your location we can ask 1000 THB per month for Internet and sometimes (more rare) 500 THB for television (subscription to the cable).
      Some you will propose a rent all inclusiveidea to calculate its invoice.
      In most cases, leases with kitchen are fully equipped (Some say too, with a minimum). If it lacks essential utensils do not hesitate to ask your landlord may be able to provide it

      It should be noted, as some say this here, that it is often more cost effective to eat at the restaurant Thai rather than dining dishes in either. This may be true for the laundry service (washing and drying of clothes).

Would you by chance a few references to tell me for a long term rental? I will do a DiveMaster on Koh Tao, and after many hesitations, I think opt for a rental of House, if they find one not too far from the diving centre (Chalok). I have planned to stay two months in all cases.

Thank you and congratulations for your site which is full of interesting information!

Happens to me to test the qualifications of (sea) water has Koh Tao and during several of our tests, after rinses our test-pieces with water drinking distributed in large bottle, test-pieces still contained rates of nitrate and phosphate students. Drinking water (in large bottles of 15 litres) is not very healthy a regular sustained use. I didn't test with small cylinders, of that I have a little time, I put me there and you will be informed.
Solutions: large bottles of water mineral (6 litres)
or for those who will stay very long and who know their eau, a l'origine filter install directly a your arrival d'eau, drinking water on tap... the dream:-) (buy the filter has home pro to the tesco lotus Koh Samui, there for all budgets)

Hi Chantal,

Koh Samui and Koh Tao are two very different islands; Samui is very "civilized" while Koh Tao is much smaller, a little more "root" and essentially populated divers... Your stay will be very different on an island or the other.

I do not know well Samui, but you can find small aparts rentals on Koh Tao or bungalows quite corects to about 10'000 THB per month, but a little indentation. In my case, I had leased near Chalok a small bungalow 9' 000 THB per month, a bit rustic, but with air conditioning.

For the movement, one viable solution: the scooter rental. This costs about 3'000 THB per month. But very careful: the roads are very bad (especially when it's raining) and people (especially tourists) roll as a spoilt. Needless to say, you qu0il is not insurance: you Woodcock, you pay!

Difficult to give addresses: you can possibly take a few days pending bungalow to explore the real estate market. You see a few signs "for rent" Mae Haad and on main roads, should be in place to realize.

On Koh Samui, you can probably organize things remotely, but it must be quite expensive. That said, I am not very familiar Samui, I went for the last time in 1999...

Bon voyage in all cases!
