Koh Yao is a group of two islands just off the eastern coast of Phuket in Phang Nga Bay. Especially the smaller of the two islands, Koh Yao Noi, is well-known for its great panoramas of the limestone islets of the bay. In best July weather, under a dazzling blue sky and a burning tropical Phuket sun, I started a daytrip to Koh Yao to have a look at the two islands.
Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai On the mid region of Phuket and Krabi are located a couple of islands called Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai. They are in the midst of the Phang Nga bay and though the process of development on these is fast but they still remain remotely outskirted. They are included in the Phang Nga and are towards the eastern side of Phuket.
