    Koh Tao - Current Conditions

    Hi all !

    I live here on Koh Tao and would like to re-assure all travelers that everything is getting back to normal. The rain has stopped, the wind has dropped and ferry services have resumed.

    Koh Tao is NOT a disaster zone - we had power, water and food - just no ferries. I have been here through many monsoons and although I have never seen this amount of rain dumped in such a short space of time, I have known ferries not run for over a week during monsoon. However this is not monsoon but a freak storm.

    There has been some damage however the majority has been to residential areas and would not effect visitors to the island. In the few places that visitors would see where there has been damage, work is already underway to fix the problems. Once the sun is out, tomorrow, the inconvenience to visitors will be negligible.

    I have seen this island dust itself off and get back to business as usual very quickly before and this time will be no different. I expect business as usual in 24 hours or less.

    If you want to read more, see photos and video then check out my blog post.

    Hey Ayesha, that's good to hear that the rain has stopped pouring and recovery is quick.

    How's the marine life and diving conditions looking - any dive boats been out yet?

    How is the weather topside? We are thinking of heading down from BKK but are trying to make sure the weather is not going to be solid rain the whole time. Any advice? Thanks.
