"In the middle of Phangnan bay lie the twin islands of Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai."

Reached by colourful long-tail boats, the beautifully unspoiled isles of Koh Yao are covered with the ever-familiar mangroves that crown the sprinkling of tiny stalactites in the bay.

Unlike its noisy neighbours, Koh Yao retains its traditional elements, as championed by the native islanders. The landscape is stunning and varied – the east side of Koh Yao Noi is strewn with deserted beaches, whilst the west is covered with rice paddies where water buffalo cool off in the mud. A drive across the island transports visitors down roads lined with wooden houses, surrounded by vibrant bougainvillea and shaded by the leaves of the rubber plantations.
