    • The modes of

    • For you to move several opportunities to Koh Tao. The taxis. The taxi boat (also called longtail boat) to coves, bays and beaches difficult access by road or to make walks around the island. The motorcycle and scooter for rent by the day. The Quad for rent by the day. The bikes / ATVS for rent by the day. And the walking !

      Namely :

      We find not Service car rental Koh Tao. We find not instead of SongTeow (Say songtèo), shuttle found in another city. The mode of travel most widespread in Koh Tao is the scooter or motorcycle One can also find rentals bikes / ATVS But we see very few on the island, perhaps due to the fact that renting a bicycle costs almost the same price as renting a scooter

    • Good scooter rental address

    • This is the port that it happens. Practice if you want to rent a scooter at your arrival. Out of port, Spin at right Arriving at the junction (a large rock near the yellow Drop Zone Bar(, to the new port under construction), take the street on your left. It rises a little. After about 50 meters, you'll find a junction with the Bam Bam on the right restaurant. Look to the leftYou will see an automatic scooter rental store and Mae Haad Guest House. Patterns are charming (seen most often the wife as the husband) and almost always smiling. It has ever been nasty surprises with them or poor echoes. Then be straight with them so that they continue to be! The sign is KP Group and they also take Mae Haad Guest House.

    • Move to arrival

    • You will arrive to Koh Tao by the port of Mae Haadwhere several options are available to you. If you already booked accommodation, you can ask that a taxi waiting for you. In this case, the taxi will bring you free of charge to your lodging. Otherwise a taxi pick-up await the arrival of the boats and offer tourists bring them in the different area of Koh Tao. There, you indicate where you want to go. Don't forget to negotiate tariff before boarding in the taxi. More world there will be in the taxi and more tariff, will also suggest you arrange with other people to take a taxi in common or choose a taxi which is already beginning to fill. A pick-up truck taxi can take 8-10 people. A third very practical option if you don't have too big luggage, of children, and that you are comfortable in motorbike, it is to walk a few tens or hundreds of metres and rent a motorbike near the port.

    • Road: tips and warnings

    • A Koh Tao, theroad infrastructure provides access to many site of interest : beaches, bays, View point and almost all of the accommodations. Important note: all roads are not paved and some dirt in high elevation roads can be hazardous to borrow. Also, getting around Koh Tao, in particular in motorbike, can be be a risk activity (see our section Council and warning).
      Koh Tao roads and path have no name and it locates with to be (an intersection, a store..), also think to take at your arrival a map of Koh Tao available free of charge everywhere.
      • A main road extends on the West Coast and allows to go (Sairee) North to the South)Chalok Baan Kao) to drain the flow of tourists from the port on the island of Mae Haad . This main road is the spinal column roads of Koh Tao. This road is bitumenized but holes all kinds, bumps, dangerous corner, sand piles, section gravillonner, nuts coconut, dog who sleep in the middle of the road, etc., require attention of every moment on the part of the users of the highway to Koh Tao.
      • A long paved trailgood quality and very pleasant to use. along the beach of Sairee and provides access to many restaurants, bars, bungalow, centres of diving and other activities.
      • The road to Ao Leuk through Ao Tanote is recent and offers now a section tarred good quality.
      • Other sections paved, in more or less degraded States, to depart from the spine of Koh Tao and finish all dirt (Or sand) to send to different bays and beaches.
      • While most of the roads and suffering of poor, do not forget that it also helps to preserve the peace of certain sites in Koh Tao and this is part of the charm of this island
      • Road signs to see Koh Tao is non-existent and poor compliance with traffic laws is applied in a very random by road users. A Koh Tao, you drive on the left and the speed limit is 35 km per hour
      • At the port of Mae Haad as well as Sairee and ChalookIt is possible to rent the taxi 4x4 that will take you into the most inaccessible places
    • Travel Scooter

    • If you have never driven wheels 2, begin this introduction alone in Koh Tao is not a good idea. Accidents are common and it could cost you dearly in an accident with a third party. At your own risk. Also, novice or experienced, here's what to know about scooter in Koh Tao

      • Rate
      • Commonly known as here Motorbikethe scooter is the means of travel number 1. It will cost you 100 to 150 bath per day of rental and the filing of your Passport you get one in one of the many shop. By the day, week or month rates are to negotiate. For example, a rented scooter 150 THB per day should easily be negotiated 3000 THB per month.

      • Gasoline
      • A tank of gas for a scooter will cost you 100 THB surroundings. What take several days normally.

      • State of affairs
      • Before riding your new vehicle, the seller will be with you a State of affairs Scooter and note any observable problems. Well read this paper and add your comments if necessary. Take a picture of the scooter from several angles during the State of the scene is a good idea that can resolve disputes. The seller you will also sign a piece of paper on which figure rates for repair. If does not, ask him imperative. In general these rates are well above market rates. Then station to the accident, you are warned. Don't forget to ask a helmet to the vendor. Sign the paper and this is, you the discovery of Koh Tao.

      • Mandatory helmet
      • A Koh Tao, as everywhere in Thailand, the legislation requires the wearing of helmets the scooter driver. But it is rare (too rare) to see scooter with a helmet drivers. There are 3 reasons for this to Koh Tao. First, the vendors do not consistently offer a helmet when he rents a scooter. Second, it is rare to be expressing the non-helmet to Koh Tao (if this is the case it will cost 200 baht fine). Third, the drivers are not enough aware of road safety on Koh Tao. So we encourage you to request a helmet to the vendor or to change store if the seller is not helmet to offer you.

      • Choose are motorbike
      • There are several type of motorbike that can be rent in Koh Tao. First of all the Scooter automatic speed. Slightly more expensive than a Manual speed Scooter they are widespread. The scooter manual speed offers the advantage of further recovery in some very steep coasts. According to the shops, you can also find motorcycles 125 cm ³ and higher type Motocross ideal for the mountain.
        of tire spike for your motorbike can prove to be a good choice to deal with all types of present road to Koh Tao. Dirt roads are many. Also some roads and some are of very strong verticals and this can cause problems. For example, numbers of scooters do not have the power to bring two passengers on some mounted high and it is not uncommon to see a scooter arrested in edge of road, in the middle of a mounted, because the scooter can no longer move forward, or top high descent, because the scooter may slip, with a driver who wonders how he will proceed or make a half turn.

      Note also that a flat tire is not uncommon in Koh Tao. There is a mechanic may around on Koh Tao, locate their pending workshops your first ride. A flat tire will cost about 150 baht.

    • Move Quad

    • Quads are more rare to Koh Tao. If you are not familiar with the conduct of the Quad, the rental can you propose a small course of conduct or direct you to individuals offering courses of conduct. Hours are sufficient.

    • Move on foot

    • Discover Koh Tao and is there a walk on foot is quite possible if you can one athlete and that will allow you to discover the true beauty of Koh Tao. Some dénivelées are very exhausting then think to take water and why not also an umbrella in the case where. On dirt roads, stay alert and watch where you walk. A bad fall is quickly arrival so take also what care the small Bobo. Last recommendation, don't go by only one in shipping and take a mobile phone with you.

    Hello,

    We have 3 days tour that you offer on your site to 8 (4 adults and 4 children). How to move in a cost-effective manner? In Indonesia we were 3-4 on a scooter, but I read on your site that this was not allowed in Thailand. The taxi can be very expensive for us who travel by backpackers. Thank you

    Hello
    We rented a car that we have during our entire stay in Thailand.
    Is there a ferry to make the crossing to Kho Tao with the car, or otherwise guarded parking or we could leave it for 2 days we want to spend on the island?
    Thank you for your help
