Unfortunately another tragic accident occurred on Koh Tao in January 2018 with a British traveller was found death in a hotel pool. There are a lot of rumors going around but no one really knows what happened. Fact is that they found another dead body, one of the many tourist deaths in Thailand per year.
Koh Tao was already struggling with a very bad reputation after the Koh Tao murders in September 2014 when a British couple was killed and left behind on Sairee Beach. From then on Ko Tao was nicknamed the murder island.
Will Koh Tao ever be able to get rid of that negative image?
