  • A great island to have a more genuine experience of Thailand and to see the rural life of the country. The tourism is still scarce so the island is calm with beautiful nearly deserted beaches. The infrastructures are not so good as others but for a resting vacations is the perfect choice. I recommend renting a bike since the taxis are not so many and the distances are big!
  • Great experience with most of the creature comforts you need, shops and restaurants near resorts but a real raw, undeveloped feel to most of the island. Lovely welcoming people and genuine wildlife.
  • Quite and beatiful. You will always find a beach that belongs to you. Only you
  • A 25km long natural island, 30 min boat drive away from the hectic life on Phuket. A handfull of 4 and 5* resorts, the rest simple but very nice BB's and small hotels. Easy to discover island with a automatic motorbike. Very friendly n helpful people (went out on gasoline!) Massage all over the island for very good prices and with good quality. 12 x more at 5* resort
  • Ko Yao Yai is half an hour ferry boat ride away from the eastcoast of popular tourist destination Ko Phuket. Everyone searching for lonely beaches, genuine wildlife and superfriendly locals should give Koh Yao Yai a try. Supereasy to explore with a motorbike and with a great variety of accomodation from homestay to 4 and 5 star resorts.
