koh yao noi island

Koh Yao Noi Island is situated in the Bay of Phang Nga in Southern Thailand and even though the island is only a one-hour boat ride from the tourist hub of Phuket you will feel as if you're a thousand miles away.

There are no loud bars, no high-rise hotels, just a handful of bungalows overlooking the Andaman Sea. Not only is this island affordable, it's an untouched paradise. The traditional way of life on Koh Yao Noi Island has remained virtually unchanged. The main road snakes through rice paddies, fishing villages and plenty of secluded beaches. The best way to explore it is on bicycle.

Another destination of Krabi province contains superb natural scenery with jungle covered limestone cliffs, rock formations, hot springs and mangroves as well as islands and beaches. Distinct from the rest of Thailand, with influences from Malaysia, the local culture has retained many of its traditions and remains largely unaffected by tourism, making the area quite unique.

Krabi is a great place to relax. The pace is unhurried and many beaches can only be reached by boat, keeping development to a minimum. Much of the province has been designated National Park. Over 80 smaller islands and the Phi Phi islands - made famous as the idyllic location for the Hollywood film ‘the Beach”.

The information about Koh Yao Noi island.

Koh Yao Noi Island, with 7,000 inhabitants, is one of the largest islands surrounding Phuket, is situated in the Bay of Phang Nga in Southern Thailand and even though the island is only a one-hour boat ride from Phuket you will feel as if you're a thousand miles away. There are no loud bars, no high-rise hotels, just a handful of bungalows. This island is not the island to come if you want to party. Sit on deck chairs sunning yourself, watch ladyboys on podiums or spent your money in market.

Koh Yao Noi is the place to get away from it all. The islanders are Muslim and the majority of the population are rubber farmers and fishermen. There are 24 hours electricity and Internet accesses in few shop houses. There is one ATMs in the town of Koh Yao and of course one 7-11 super market and local shops (fresh food or cooked food) Taxi are available if you don’t want to walk around. So not only is this island affordable, it's an untouched paradise. The traditional way of life on Koh Yao Noi Island has remained virtually natural, quitet and easy place to live. Koh Yao Noi is the center of government with all government offices located there. Koh Yao has many tourist attractions that still maintain their natural beauty along with many beautiful beaches. The people of this island lead a simple life bond with the sea along with making a living from the sea.  Apart from this, not far from the coast of Koh Yao are many exotic islands, which increase the beauty of Koh Yao.


There are a few bungalow operations providing basic but very charming accommodations. Rental vehicles are not an option, although sometimes you can strike a deal with people at the bungalow to use their motorcycle.  Beside, you can charter Tuk Tuk for sightseeing around the island.  Traveling to Koh Yao Yai is like traveling back in time.
