If you’ve been considering taking a trip to somewhere new, and exotic, beautiful place outside the norm, the beautiful island of Koh Yao Noi that sits in Southern Thailand beckons you. Here is a money saving plan and we cover the cost of travel in Thailand below!
Where is Koh Yao Noi?
Based in Southern Thailand, Koh Yao Noi, also known as the “Small Long Island,” settles in the middle of Phang Nga Bay. Boasting a picturesque landscape of forests on one side and sandy beaches on the other, the views of Yao Noi are breathtaking. The small island only reaches about 140-kilometres, but the town is travel and accommodation friendly, so don’t let the small island feel hold you back.
Koh Yao Noi Accommodation
Although Koh Yao Noi is a popular vacation home destination for the wealthy, don’t fear to try to make this trip work on a budget. One fabulous holiday resort Koh Yao Noi option, Coastal Escape resort, offers an extremely affordable Koh Yao Noi villa rate and many accommodation options that are sure to please you. Breakfast is served daily, and you get a free massage with your stay!
Also, it’s said that the prime time to visit this little island is during the so-called “dry” months between November and April. Because Thailand is considered a hotspot for monsoons, going during the wet season could very well rain you straight back to your hotel! Of course, rooms are cheaper during the rainy months, but only you can decide if the unusual weather is worth the stay.
Koh Yao Noi Transportation
Unfortunately, Ko Yao Noi does not offer public transport. However, taxis are readily available for your convenience. An even better option (and more affordable!) is renting a motorbike to get around the island. Some resorts even offer these motorbikes for as little as $5.00 to $6.00 US dollars. If you don’t want to spend money on a bike, don’t forget that walking is just as easy, especially since the island is only about 85 miles wide, and most of the action is in a located area.
Koh Yao Noi Activities
Activities — especially of the outdoor variety — are offered in abundance at Koh Yao Noi. While the beaches are beautiful, the shallow bays become rocky and muddy at low tide, making the water less fun to swim in and more tempting to fish for crabs in. Of course, you don’t have to get into the water to enjoy the beach, as you can spend your time sunbathing on the shore or taking a boat ride to the bay. The town is ideal for relaxing, but just as great for fishing, diving, kayaking, sailing, crabbing, exploring, and hiking. The scenery never runs out.
Ko Yao Noi has a few scattered restaurants, but the roadside village markets are your best bet, especially if you’re on a budget.
Koh Yao Noi Nightlife
After a long, tiring day of adventuring the island under the sun, you may be anxious to find a place to kick back and have a cold cocktail or beer. However, because drinking alcohol is discouraged on this little island, it won’t be easy to find any nightlife party scene. But while it won’t be easy, it is possible. Some of the local bars and restaurants serve drinks, the more popular places being Step One Bar (which is always eager for business) and Para Bar. Step One Bar serves a variety of beverages to their customers from November to February, but if you happen to travel the island between May through September, all you’ll get at Step One Bar is beer.
Another favorite, Para Bar, has an exciting pirate vibe to it, as the bar itself is built to resemble an actual pirate ship. Offering both food and drinks, Para Bar boasts a huge menu filled with boozy concoctions, beer, and tasty wine. Alongside their drinks, tradition and authentic Thai Food is served up on demand. This bar will be on the island’s east side road.
Whether you want to travel solo or with your family, Koh Yao Noi can easily be a fantastic option. It’s an especially popular destination for newlyweds, as a Thailand trip cost for couple can be extremely affordable.
Perfect for outdoor adventures and exploration, Yao Noi welcomes you with open arms. Relax on the beach, chase some crabs, take a boat ride, or simply explore the little island on foot. You won’t be disappointed.
