Koh Tao Underwater Festival to celebrate and focus on island’s environmental and conservation efforts. The festival goes on for 2 days and 2 nights.
For body art, there are a lot of very good tattoo artists providing high quality work at very reasonable prices, all with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Most of the tattoo and body piercing shops are on the three main beaches and offer both machined and bamboo tattooing.
Handmade jewellery is one of the handicrafts easily found in various shops and roadside vendors. Some people make items on site so you can watch them create their pieces. There is a lot of choice available from inexpensive thread braid and shells, to unique jewellery made with antique beads, precious stones and silver.
