Festivals Koh Tao
Save Koh Tao Festival is an amazing event put on each year by the Save Koh Tao group and the local community. It is a great party to raise the awareness of locals and visitors as to problems on our island, increase participation in conservation projects, and raise necessary funds for the three branches of the Save Koh Tao Group:. For two days and two nights, this environmental festival literally takes over the island, with the whole community coming out to get involved in what’s going on.
The festival in all subsequent years, will be held around June 18 th and 19 th . These dates are significant because that is also the date when his majesty King Ramma IV first visited Koh Tao and signed his name in the rocks at Sairee Beach, over 114 years ago. The festival is free, and additionally there will be discounts available around the island (food, accommodation, travel, diving, etc) for the first 1,000 people that sign up and also help on environmental projects (must be on Koh Tao to sign-up).
If you are planning to come back to Koh Tao, or coming for the first time, try to plan your trip to coincide with these dates. The local festival is rich in local island culture, and is a unique experience that you will not find anywhere else but Koh Tao. Hope to see you together with Koh Tao Coral Resort and Coral Grand Divers!
