Located in Phangnga Bay between Krabi and Phuket, Koh Yao Noi wows visitors with abundant natural resources on land as well as under the sea. Many tourists travelling there even said they would want to keep the island just the way it is, as their secret escape.
The island is quite small, running 15 kilometres north to south, and about 40 sqkm in size. It is home to 5,000 people, mostly fishermen and farmers, and boasts a hospital, schools and a post office all linked by a network of roads including one that follows the coastline. Some 30 households on the island are members of the tourism club. Combined, they can accommodate up to 150 people at a time. Guests get to observe the local people's way of life via the homestay experience and the tour that includes stops at a rubber plantation, a coconut farm, a rice field, a batik shop, followed by free time on the beach.
