If you are taking a professional course with us, it is more than likely that you will spend over a month on Koh Tao.

Rather than staying in a room or bungalow with a nightly rate, you will be looking for one of the many long term rentals on the island.
Unfortunately, most of these places cannot be booked ahead of time but there is always available space somewhere. Some are less than 5 minutes away, some 15 minutes away. The island is pretty small but some of our students will rent a scooter or a moped for 2,500 baht a month.

Prices vary according to features and location. Here are a few examples:
