Koh Yao islands review
There are two of Koh Yao islands in Phang Nga Bay – Koh Yao Yai and Koh Yao Noi, each promising something different to your Thai vacation. If not for anything else, Koh Yao offers a quick entry into Phuket and Krabi and is enough to consider Koh Yao Yai or Koh Yao Noi an excellent choice for a holiday location.
Koh Yao Yai is the largest island that marvels with its array of rubber plantations, an abundance of pure nature, deserted beaches, and a relatively busy local culture. Although Koh Yao Yai is not famous for the spotless beaches in Thailand, the water bodies are calm and inviting enough for any traveler. Koh Yao Yai offers proximity to some of the terrific snorkeling and diving locations on nearby islands, including Koh Phi Phi.
In turn, a more luxurious Koh Yao Noi is far enough from Phuket to ensure the crowds do not influence it. Koh Yao Noi brings with it a dash of aesthetic brilliance, impressive serenity, and a relaxed atmosphere to accommodate it all. Overlooking Phang Nga Bay, the western beaches on Koh Yao Noi are some of the most picturesque in the Phuket vicinity.
