Death Island- Koh Tao

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

I recently discovered the actual date that Virat Asavachin (aka Mr Ban) founder of BAN’S DIVING RESIRT was assassinated on Sairee Beach, Koh Tao. It was MONDAY, 4 FEBRUARY 2002.

Here is an article from the front page of the Bangkok Post date 5 February 2002:

Why the girl fleeing from her Guru to Koh Tao and then found hanging and burning is never mentioned, was suicide as far as I remember....
