  • Koh YaoYai is a small island East of Phuket and the Pang NGA Bay. A few, very friendly inhabitants. Safe roads so an exploration with the scooter is relatively safe - naturally on the driving style and the ;)... we were in the East which has island in the YaoYai village resort - attention of the driver's and super! (See evaluation of the hotel) You can explore very beautiful small coves and beaches with the scooter - one must suffer - niht hunger and thirst there are numerous very cheap leaky ways... We certainly come again

  • had a rest in "Thailand", on the island of Phuket, Patong Beach ". Stopped at "Sino Maison". Good location-close to a supermarket, driving school, where you can get international rights to a moped, and the beach, although not the best. People in the area a lot. Most Russian tourists. And why? Yes because there just to relax. However, I couldn't limit myself from the culture and guide the Council visited the free sightseeing tour. Naturally, it is accentuated in the field selling all sorts of things-but it is worth mentioning that during excursions Snake farm, where several species of snakes, and the "tamers" hold the show with them.

  • 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.
