Koh Tao is world renowned for its diving and snorkeling. The water is warm and beautiful. The visibility is great and the marine life and coral formations are awesome. While on the island we rented a 4-wheeler to rip around. It's a good thing too because most of the "roads" we traversed were scary to say the least. It was super fun and we got to see the majority of the island.
The next day we signed up for a snorkeling trip that took us around the island to all of the best snorkeling spots. Our boat and crew were great and we saw some cool marine life and coral. One of the highlights of the trip was stopping at the small island of Nan Yuan. (See photos) We climbed the hill for a great view of the island and for some fantastic pictures.
