Why your 2023 bucket list should have Koh Tao πŸ“πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ (Interview)

Do you ever have those things you wanna do or achieve yet not sure of the possibility of it? We always want to tell our own story and share our own experiences but there’s some joy as well in telling someone else’s story. I love travel! Even if it involves me narrating a travel story that isn’t mine.

2023 in comparison to the previous years may just bring some more freedom in terms of travel as opposed to the Covid 19 frustrating period of 2020 to 2021. Should this be the case, am hoping we consider adding this island to our bucket list.

I had an opportunity to interview a traveller who tried out Koh Tao and from his description and experiences, it would be a cool plan to bucket list it.

So, what about Koh Tao?

This is an island in Thailand with cool touristic spots where you could scuba dive, snorkel, hike, rock climb and it has some great night spots and dive shops too.This place is said to have stunning white sand and palm-fringed beaches, tropical coral reefs, with species including whales, sharks and all sorts of marine life! Hearsay right there, but this is a kind of place to bucket list!

Isn’t this place just dreamy?

  1. Thailand is a place I hope to visit one day too, along with nearby countries like Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia and Malaysia. The food in your post look heavenly. Papaya is such a tropical treat.
