From Koh Lanta I went to Koh Tao to get my diving certification. Many people come to Koh Tao to learn how to dive or to party or both. So it is again, a town full of westerners with stands left and right for late night eats and buckets of alcohol (A mixed drink in a bucket, meant to share but many drink alone). The couple of main streets are littered with various genre of foods from around the world and shops selling flip flops and bikinis. I can see why many people come here and end up extending their time longer than planned. It’s a beach paradise in Thailand with most western comforts and amazing scuba diving/ snorkeling.
